BIM method for the future simplifies the planning of components - Efficient and effective

Since November 2014, Saint-Gobain Glass has been helping architects in planning with BIM, a digital method for the planning of buildings.

Extensive data sets on almost all types of glass available from Saint-Gobain Glass are already stored in the database.  The immediate and continuous availability of all current and relevant data to everyone involved and an improved exchange of information thus simplifies the work of planners enormously.

Planners and architects often are faced with the difficult task of realizing construction projects quickly and inexpensively while satisfying high quality standards. This is possible if everyone involved – for example, architects, structural engineers, building engineers and other specialist planners – make use of modern, integrated planning methods. Thus, today’s typically large volumes of data and various states of information, can be bundled - especially in connection with complex plans. And that is where BIM (Building Information Modelling) is needed. Saint-Gobain Glass supports architect with BIM, in that the company files objects such as "window" on the BIMobjects database. These objects are associated with both technical values and technical regulations etc..
