A Georgia, United States-based boiler specialist firm have released some of their products in digital format, suitable for download to Building Information Modelling software.
Virtual-Strategy Magazine are reporting that Hurst Boiler and Welding Inc. have released an “extensive range” of their biomass, gas, hybrid fuel-fired, oil, solid fuel, waste and wood steam and hot water boilers as Autodesk Revit-enabled BIM objects, in-order to tailor to customers who now “select products online”, that’s according to Jeff Hurst, VP Sales and Marketing at Hurst Boiler.
“Industrial buying has evolved, and now customers commonly research and select products online,” stated Hurst. “To ensure Hurst Boiler remains in contention, we want our products to be found and selected online, and easily integrated into the normal engineering and design process.”
The BIM (and CAD) components can be downloaded at Hurst Boilers’ new-look website which “makes it easy to search and select the right boiler online”. Interested specifiers can either download their chosen boiler-related item to their computer or directly import it into their software platform.
It appears that Autodesk Revit was chosen as the BIM-suited option due to its stance as one of the “most popular file types”, as the article denotes.
Hurst Boiler will also be showcasing their BIM objects at an industry event in Chicago. The 2015 AHR EXPO at McCormick Place Convention Center, Chicago, takes place from January 26th to January 28th, 2015.
