Downloadable in the Revit format and also available on request as IFC files, Kawneer's curtain walling, windows and doors for façade applications are now available through the UK's largest building information modelling (BIM) portal, www.bimstore.co.uk, as well as through Kawneer’s own website.
The Kawneer portfolio includes the AA 100 and AA 110 curtain walling, with 50mm and 65mm sightlines respectively, 190 heavy-duty and 350 severe-duty commercial entrance doors, and the AA 541 casement window.
Kawneer's BIM models provide 3D digital replicas of the products as well as the critical COBIE data that an architect will need about them to guide them through the whole design and construction process.
Kawneer sales and marketing director Mark Clemson said: "Kawneer embraces BIM as a core best practice for ensuring the very highest return on investment for its clients over the entire lifetime of a building, continuing to pay dividends long after the last milestone in design and construction phases have been completed.
"Kawneer see BIM as an integral part of the strategy to maximise the construction process from inception through to completed construction."
