Vasco ventilation is 100% BIM ready!
Already familiar with BIM? In the building sector, BIM is the crème de la crème as far as technology goes. Thanks to the ´Building Information Model´, architects and contractors can bring together all of the information on a building project in a single digital model. This offers many advantages - for the architect, the contractor and the installers as well as for the principal. And that is precisely why VASCO quickly embraced BIM!
What is BIM? How does it work?
BIM is an online software platform into which all parties can input their information on the building project. The architect uploads the plans and provides information about the materials, techniques and so on. Data on the planning and phasing are also included. And all of this information – handily assembled in one place - can thus also be consulted simultaneously by all parties.
Advantages of working with BIM
What added value does building with BIM offer? Perhaps the most important advantage is that errors and overlaps in the plans are immediately detected and construction errors can thus be avoided. That reduces the cost price and accelerates the construction time.
All of these are advantages of BIM:
- Fewer construction errors and thus lower failure costs
- Shorter construction time
- Easy visualisation of the building project in 3D images, renders, simulations, etc.
- Data no longer have to be worked out or drawn several times
- Better assessment of the necessary building materials
- Consistency in the ground plans, cross-sections, facade views and details
- Better control of the process and the production
- No surprises later on
VASCO products in BIM
Because VASCO believes one hundred percent in building with BIM – an easy way to build faster, better and cheaper – we furnish the BIM data for various products to architects, contractors and installers. All of the information on our ventilation systems and different types of radiators is already present in BIM libraries such as MEP content.
