As Europe’s foremost manufacturers of building services pipework systems, GF Piping Systems has taken a further step forward in facilitating the use of Building Information Modelling – normally referred to as BIM – by adding the EcoFIT range to the product selection available to specifiers in the 3D format. The move will further enhance GF’s attractions to architects and engineers across the construction industry, especially those involved with public sector and high specification commercial developments such as the landmark tall buildings currently planned for London and other major cities. The EcoFIT BIM objects have been added to an on line library which already covers the COOL-FIT 2.0, INSTAFLEX, AQUASYSTEM and malleable iron product ranges, making it even easier for project consultants and M&E specialists to specify GF. Importantly, BIM for GF products have been created to operate with the industry’s preferred platform, Autodesk RevitR. Amongst the benefits to adopting BIM is the ability to explore a virtual view of completed installations, ensuring the efficient integration of multiple components and – of particular importance for building services – the avoidance of ‘clashes’ in often congested locations. Speed, accuracy and cost efficiency are all potential areas of improvement.
