Guardian Glass UK launches BIM objects to meet the needs of a changing market

Building Information Modelling (BIM) is the next generation of digital representation for architectural projects and Guardian Glass UK have strived to meet the needs of a changing market, with BIM objects created for all Guardian Glass UK products.

The way architectural projects are being designed and created is changing” states Paul Anderson Guardian Glass UK Architectural Sales Manager, “there is a growing need for specified glass to be supported with BIM objects.Staying ahead of these new innovative processes is paramount to ensure we can provide the right products and support required to meet the needs of project design teams, from specification through to construction”

Guardian’s BIM objects allow glass to be specified either as a design material in its own right, or in single, double or triple glazing, with data variations to account for laminated glass and other glass processes such as heat treatments.

All of the products available for commercial construction have been modelled from clear annealed float to coated and laminated products such as SunGuard and ClimaGuard. Other decorative products have also been modelled such as our SatinDeco.

To ensure all products are easily accessible we have a listing in the National Building Specification (NBS) BIM Library, as well as objects hosted on all of our website product pages and within the Guardian Plus Technical Centre.

Each of our BIM objects have been made available in Revit and IFC format, which are the leading systems for creating BIM projects.

To help architects, designers, and other BIM professionals understand how our objects work in the BIM environment a short demonstration video has been produced to explain the use of Guardian glass products as BIM objects.

The video is available on our BIM home page at www.guardianglass.co.uk/architectural/BIM
