Knauf Insulation Technical Solutions embraces innovation with the creation of BIM objects

Building Information Modelling (BIM) is a digital, future-oriented process for planning, constructing and operating buildings and helps to increase productivity in the construction industry. It involves all stakeholders in a building process – from building owners, engineers and planners to building material producers, property operators and facility managers to demolition and disposal companies.
By the same time BIM is a collaborative way of using and sharing product information and planning in the architectural, engineering, and construction industries. It is based on relevant information accessible during each step in a building’s life cycle, from design to demolition.
„In a construction environment where digitalization and automation gains dramatically on importance, we see the big advantages of a virtual building process. These benefits we want to enable also for our customers and the specifiers of our products”, explains Johan Prior-Knock, Commercial Director Systems Divisions.
Key advantage: the data model generated in the planning phase of a building can be used across all other phases in the building’s lifecycle. This enables project owners to flag possible errors in the construction process at an early stage, which effectively controls possible failure costs.
Always keeping up with innovation, Knauf Insulation Technical Solutions has now developed BIM objects for the Thermo-teK (HVAC insulation) and Fire-teK (fire protection for air ducts) product ranges in order to allow specifiers to save valuable time, and to offer smart solutions that meet their needs and can be integrated in their BIM projects. All the products included in BIM are described in detail regarding their visual, technical and functional properties.
Knauf Insulation Technical Solutions BIM objects are provided in both Revit and Ifc formats. Videotutorials and proper documentation will be available to make intuitive and immediate the use of the BIM files. All new BIM objects are now available under www.ki-ts.com.
„In addition to easy and ready-to-use BIM objects we will provide with Dynamo an innovative tool for the selection of our materials. This will facilitate the daily job of specifiers and planners with BIM and let them to enhance their projects with high-quality technical insulation products”, so Prior-Knock.
