Planning security in all mayor BIM formats
To make work easier for planners, architects, designers, building services engineers and developers, the Hansgrohe Group uses BIM to make geometry available and attribute data for fixtures, mixers, showers, shower systems and installation technology. The BIM models are depicted on an LOD 300 level of detail including all relevant information, precise measurements, materials and positioning. Users of various planning software will be supported, as the data is available for Revit, ArchiCAD, AutoCAD, SketchUp, Vectorworks 2017, IFC, and 3DS.
“For our customers, we are taking a step further towards the future of digital, model-based building planning. By supplying BIM data for AXOR and hansgrohe products, we are investing in more planning security for all parties involved. Particularly in case of plan modifications, time-consuming reworking can be avoided. This is why we believe it is crucial to cover a wide range of our products and to make the data available in all established formats,” explains Frank Semling, Member of the Executive Board of Hansgrohe SE, responsible for Supply Chain Management and Services.
All AXOR and hansgrohe products as BIM objects
Initially, BIM data will be available for the many new products of the AXOR and hansgrohe brands introduced at ISH. Regular updates will ensure that the data is complete and current by providing BIM data for the entire product range and new products as they are launched. In this way, the Hansgrohe Group supports efficient coordination between all parties involved in the entire life cycle of the building beyond the construction stage.
