Remeha Commercial offers BIM on boilers

Remeha Commercial is now offering Building Information Modelling (BIM) objects on all of its condensing and 'super condensing' boilers.
These consist of 3D digital models of the products with additional asset data on each boiler type, including heat outputs, carbon and NOx emissions, size and weights, service and maintenance areas and maintenance schedules.

The company has launched BIM objects of the 'super condensing' Quinta Eco Plus units and condensing Quinta Pro and Gas Eco Plus boiler ranges. BIM objects of all of its heating products will be made available over the next few months.

Remeha says the BIM files are digital and regularly updated, providing up-to-date and accurate information that will save architects and specifiers valuable time in research and facilitate potential changes and updates to the project.

The Government estimates that using BIM programs will bring a reduction in capital building costs of 20 per cent and a similar drop in carbon emissions. All UK public sector projects over £5m will be fully collaborative 3D BIM by 2016, but the benefits apply to all sizes of buildings.

Remeha Commercial's national sales manager, Chris Meir, said: 'A Building Information Model digitally represents the physical and functional characteristics of a facility and is a shared knowledge resource, offering information that will help not only in the design process but throughout the lifecycle of that facility.

'A basic premise of BIM is collaboration. Through BIM, architects, specifiers, manufacturers, all the disciplines involved, can insert, extract, update or modify information at different phases in the facility's lifecycle to support and reflect the roles of that discipline or manufacturer.'

He added: 'As a leading heating manufacturer, it is vital that we are embracing this level of design and that we understand what is required from us by our customers.'

The Remeha Commercial BIM family is available for free download from the company's website (www.remeha.co.uk) on registration in Revit format, for easy integration into a specific model.
