Saint-Gobain goes BIM
Saint-Gobain provides architects with quick access to over 10,000 building physics-tested component solutions through ArchiCAD, Allplan and Revit BIM assistants.
The digital planning and working method BIM (Building Information Modeling) has numerous advantages – especially for architects and planners: It not only enables a noticeable increase in efficiency and planning security, but also becomes an essential building block for the development of competitive differentiation and planning ability to prove. With the “Saint-Gobain goes BIM” strategy, Saint-Gobain has already defined its route at BAU 2017 in order to make architects and planners fit for the increasing digitization of the construction industry with high-performance, concrete component solutions in BIM quality. Now, the extensive range of BIM assistants and plug-ins for the planning software Allplan Architecture, Graphisoft ArchiCAD and Autodesk Revit has again been greatly expanded.
In addition to the building physics tested, moisture-proof BIM files for pitched roof and top floor ceiling are also a very large selection of needs-based and fully digitized component solutions for interior design (wall, floor, ceiling), curtain and plaster facade, basement ceiling and the perimeter area available – currently over altogether 10,000 tested construction variants. A great added value of the Saint-Gobain BIM files: They bundle the data of the group brands ISOVER, Rigips and Weber to secure complete solutions and thus enable the creation of cross-component 5D building models in no time at all.
