Staffordshire-based Recticel Insulation have launched their own offering of Building Information Modelling objects.
The thermal insulation specialists, who are part of the wider International Recticel Group, have released 140 objects categorized across nine products that are available for free download.
Objects available to implement into your BIM software include EuroWall Cavity, Eurothane EuroDeck, Eurothane GP and PowerDeck B and F.
Speaking to BIMcrunch, Recticel’s Technical Services Officer, Paul Forrester ACIAT said: “A failure to offer BIM would be a risk in the competitive marketplace. At Recticel Insulation, we want to make it easier, not harder for people to specify our products. For that reason, during the development of our objects, we met with local architects who have invested in BIM, to get a better understanding of how they use it and where they source BIM objects from.
“BIM also has a role to play in the fabric first philosophy that Recticel Insulation supports. With the potential for improved modelling and quality assurance that BIM offers at design stage, improvements will hopefully be translated to site, ensuring that buildings perform as intended and helping to close the performance gap.”
