Helifix has launched a BIM object library to support the industry’s transition to digital building modelling. Available to download from www.helifix.co.uk/downloads/bim-objects or from the NBS National BIM Library at www.nationalbimlibrary.com/Helifix, these Revit format BIM objects allow Helifix products to be easily incorporated into a 3D building model and its associated component database.
Offered as part of the NBS portfolio, users can be confident each file has been quality-checked by the Helifix and NBS teams, catalogued in line with the National Building Specification and is designed to work seamlessly with the BIM specification tool NBS Create, as well as being compatible with COBie spreadsheets.
Thanos Kiourtis, Structural Engineer at Helifix, said “The use of BIM is gathering momentum with an increased number of construction professionals using BIM software for both new build and remedial applications. As a leader in the design and engineering of innovative structural repair systems, Helifix is providing a comprehensive BIM Object library to cater for this new digital demand. Our BIM portfolio includes key products used in the field of masonry repair and reinforcement, suitable for a wide range of applications including heritage and listed structures. These BIM objects can be easily embedded within structural drawings to define repair schedules and to provide clients with an accurate ‘as-built’ model.”
