The Single Ply Roofing Association (SPRA) have became the first trade organisation to launch Building Information Modelling objects.
The downloads comprise of seven commonly used roof build ups, which “are ideally suited for the use of single ply systems on flat, pitched and curved roofs.” As a project progresses, these objects can also be switched with a specific manufacturer’s product should the user wish.
SPRA have transitioned into the world of BIM to enable their customers to have more avenues to access their portfolio of work. BIM’s standardised format and the collaboration it initiates enables SPRA customers to enjoy “better decision-making, improved productivity, increased efficiency, competitive advantage and higher profitability.”
SPRA CEO James Talman commented on the ground-breaking progression into providing objects for 3D models, a technological platform that is changing the shape of the architecture, construction and engineering industries.
“Following our discussions with NBS last year concerning the role of industry-recognised trade bodies assisting with the development of generic BIM objects, we are delighted to be the first trade organisation to have launched our BIM programme.”
