Dorma produces full products range in BIM

DORMA are proud to announce that they have launched a wide range of their products as Building Information Modeling (BIM) objects. All DORMA objects are free to download at www.dorma-uk.co.uk and the Bimstore Library, which will make identifying the most suitable product for each project specification a simple and efficient process.

DORMA’s objects will be available in user friendly Revit format and will be Industry Foundation Classes (IFC) and COBie compatible.

BIM is changing the way buildings are designed, built and operated. 75% of respondents to the National BIM Report 2013 agree it is the ‘future of project information’.

As part of the Government initiative, by 2016 all publicly funded buildings will require fully collaborative level 2, 3D BIM. Prototyping the project in BIM will help to improve efficiency as the architect and specifier will be able to identify potential clashes within the design before they get to site. As such, this information can also be passed onto the building’s future owner or maintenance provider, so that all products can be clearly identifiable and highlight when servicing is required.

DORMA strive to remain at the forefront of new technology and the range of BIM objects will help customers to meet Government building requirements, as well as prepare for the future, with valuable information being transferred from a building’s conception to its ultimate owner.

It is hoped that DORMA products will help lead the way in the industry, with hassle free and user friendly objects that will provide a wealth of information to the client in order to help create designs that deliver the best results.

Phil Jones of DORMA commented

“At DORMA we understand that the landscape of the construction industry is changing. Our launch of Revit objects makes it quicker and easier for architects and designers to understand and implement our door controls, automatics and glass products into their projects.”

DORMA’s latest addition to its offering cements their position as the first choice for access solutions in line with a continued commitment to collaborative working processes. Using DORMA’s BIM objects, architects and specifiers can simplify compliance to Building Regulations, while delivering high performance solutions.
