A global security solutions technology firm have stated their intention to release their own Building Information Modelling object library later this year.
Nedap have started a trial of BIM components with a team of UK consultants, having both understood the importance of BIM processes in the future globally and how the UK’s BIM industry is at the forefront.
The BIM compliant component collection will be related to access control and will also be released in Europe once the UK-based trial is over.
“The building industry has been under pressure for years. To reduce the risk of errors, it’s crucial for architects, planners, consultants, integrators and contractors to work together more effectively. BIM increases effectiveness, by allowing them to visualize the building in a digital prototype and analyse risks before the building even started.” explained Ross Bale, Security Specialist at Nedap.
“Nedap contributes to this way of working by trialling a Level 2 BIM compliant library for access control. It is currently being tested by a key group of UK consultants. We will actively work with their feedback to improve our BIM library. When it works correctly, we will launch it in the rest of Europe in 2016, to support building partners in working together more effectively.”
