We have recently been working with online platforms to provide better quality digital content for people working with our systems. We already offer a number of digital downloads on our website, including technical drawings, product and installation guides as well as relevant certification required for many specifiers during the planning process. In addition to this we have now updated our offering through bimstore and FastrackCAD, to help architects and specifiers further.
The online information library Bimstore offers BIM information to those in the construction industry. BIM (Building Information Modelling) is a collaborative approach to projects that uses digital technologies to make planning projects more efficient and give greater clarity and detail for the building as a whole. BIM allows you to embed asset data along with a 3-dimensional model into plans to help manage and maintain assets through the project lifecycle. BIM is now the required standard for many local authorities and is used by most major construction companies.
Our information on Bimstore allows users to input 3 dimensional models of P-Clad and X-Clad. The BIM details will allow users to produce 3D project installation details and from these generate system quantities required. This can then be sent to us so we can provide an accurate estimate for the project. From the 3D models of their building, users can generate photo realistic visuals using any of the available ranges of brick and stone blends to get a clearer idea of how the final project would look. You can view Eurobrick’s BIM content at www.bimstore.co/manufacturers/eurobrick.
We have also have our information on FastrackCAD, which is an architectural database that allows registered users to view or download free CAD files. These are simplified 2 dimensional versions of our standard detail drawings, which can be input into working drawings to save time during the planning phase. You can view Eurobrick’s CAD download on www.fastrackcad.com in the brick slips and stone cladding section.
You can also take a look at our own Resources section to see our digital downloads and for further information on all of our systems.
