With this in mind, AAMA’s BIM Task Group developed AAMA 912-13,” says Dan Luoma (Luoma Contract Inc.), chair of AAMA’s BIM Task Group. “This specification should provide a more streamline BIM process for the fenestration industry.”
According to AAMA 912-13, DI models are fenestration BIM models of “catalog” products of standard size and configuration that are often made available through manufacturers’ websites or industry warehouses/library sites. PEC models are project-specific fenestration BIM models that are provided at pre-defined milestones in the project execution process for insertion into the overall project BIM model.
AAMA 912 references AAMA 507-12, Standard Practice for Determining the Thermal Performance Characteristics of Fenestration Systems Installed in Commercial Buildings.
