BIM. Building Information Modelling

What is BIM?:

BIM stands for Building Information Modelling. There are 3 levels.

What is the concept?:

  • All elements of a building can be modelled digitally in 3D before the structure is even built.
  • Certain Zip-Clip products are now modelled digitally in 3D.
  • The files are call REVIT files.
  • REVIT is the Autodesk software used to create the files.
  • REVIT is also used to build and view the project models.

Zip Clip is compliant BIM ready:

  • The UK Government has now set a target that Public sector projects must only use products and systems that are compliant to BIM Level 2.
  • Level 2 requires the digital file information to be in a format that other BIM users will recognise & use, i.e REVIT.
  • Because Zip-Clip has digital files produced in REVIT, we are able to say that we now BIM ready.
