Grundfos launches new Building Information Modelling content. This makes it easier for architects, engineers and designers to specify the right equipment for new buildings.
Digital solutions are to a larger and larger extent making work easier,
faster and more accurate in businesses all over the world. Including the
construction design business. Grundfos has just recently released the first
batch of all-new Building Information Modelling (BIM) content, which will make
it easier and faster for engineers, architects and designers to choose and
"This offering of BIM assets will place Grundfos product details directly into the hands of specifiers at the time of design, and also during construction. Grundfos’ BIM offering opens new doors for project specifications, allowing Grundfos products to be embedded into project specifications earlier in design through the power of building information modelling,” says Christensen Fich, Strategic Business Development Manager at Grundfos.
The new assets is made available through the Grundfos Product Center and through a plug in for Revit, a commonly used building modelling software tool and it has been developed with the end-users in mind:
“We have focused on finding the perfect balance between file size, exact geometry and the parameters you need to get the job done as a BIM professional,” says Marcus Christensen Fich
The new BIM offering provides specifiers with a comprehensive library of product-based digital models that can be used to create custom drawings with greater accuracy and system intelligence than ever before. These models have been developed for use by stakeholders throughout the entire life cycle of a building.
- Each Grundfos product family has its own type catalogue – and some larger families may have multiple catalogues, each containing a portion of the product range.
- Grundfos models contain, as a minimum, exact geometry,
electrical and piping connectors and operational conditions.
- Grundfos models are lightweight and efficient; stripped of all unnecessary detail and data.
- Grundfos models contain three levels of detail – coarse, medium and fine – catering to different stages of the design and construction process. They all contain the same data – but different geometry.
