Fast growing trend
”Planning with BIM-objects is a strong international trend, today companies as well as governments are implementing BIM-strategies in order to improve quality and effectiveness within their building processes. In Great Britain BIM is legislated in public procurement and we expect followers”, explains Magnus Karlsson, business developer at BIMobject.
BIMobject is a Swedish company providing a global platform for BIM-objects, helping producers to market their products to architects, construction engineers, consultants and other important decision makers. Today BIMobject has approximately 1.2 million professional users all over the world.
Content is king
”Our ambition is to help our clients to establish a dialogue with the architect in an early stage, by providing relevant and detailed product knowledge of premium technical quality. You see, a BIM-object is not only a 3D model. The BIM-object also contains all imaginable information about the product and its properties. The platform even allows the architect to have direct contact with the producer. If you are an architect working in Germany you can get direct access to the company’s German representative ”, says Magnus.
The BIMobject platform works as a community where producers are offered help with developing and publishing content and quality verifications. For architects and other professional users, the membership is free at the moment.
The BIM-objects at BIMobject are offered in different file formats like ArchiCAD, Revit and/or other-files according to the producers’ standards.
Download track controls also ensures that users get information when or if products have been updated or discontinued.
