The BIM offering covers products manufactured by both ACO Water Management and ACO Building Drainage.
ACO’s BIM objects are available in REVIT, CIVIL 3D (Water Management only) and IFC formats incorporating non-graphic information, in neutral COBie format, that provides the necessary performance, installation and maintenance detail required for intelligent application from concept, through to completion and into years of use.
Head of sector development Gary Morton, from ACO said: “The infrastructure sector is slowly beginning to see for itself the benefits of adopting BIM, with some early examples or projects utilising the concept coming to fruition. However, it can only be truly embraced with the backing of manufacturers, who are willing to invest in the creation of files that will enable project modelling and information management. ACO is therefore leading the way, as the first surface water management supplier to launch a BIM offering specifically for infrastructure and civils.”
