Impey, Coram and Coram Showerpods all offer BIM data
The Coram Group UK is now offering Building Information Modelling (BIM) data on products across its wet room, healthcare enclosures and shower ranges.
Ahead of the government deadline of January 2016 for adoption of level 2 Building Information Modelling, Coram is offering BIM across Impey Wetrooms, Coram Showers and Coram Showerpods brands.
It is in response to architects and planners who are producing 3D models of their proposals including wetrooms, enclosures and handrails and MEP equipment.
Specification manager of Impey Stephen Pelling explained: “The Impey wet room components have been brought together in a single Revit file for client upload. This file provides a graphical representation of all the component models covering the range, demonstrating to users how to combine each component to complete a wet room installation. Each component carries our supplier information plus a component number and dimensional data. Where applicable hotspots are provided to attach drainage and/or electric connections.”
The requirements by 2016 are for all centrally procured Government projects to be a fully collaborative 3D BIM (with all project and asset information, documentation and data being digital).
Coram UK group managing director, John Blackburn said: “We supply a variety of different bathroom products to sectors in the UK, including the construction industry, and we are committed to staying at the forefront of industry changes and developments. Our investment in BIM demonstrates this, and we are pleased to be able to now offer a wide range of our products with BIM data to architects and specifiers.”
