Zink INSULATION Dow Building Solutions launches new BIM objects for building insulation ranges Dow Building Solutions has launched new BIM objects for its building insulation product ranges: XENERGY, STYROFOAM, and PERIMATE. The new certified objects are available to download for free from the National BIM Library website in IFC and Revit formats for use, or using the NBS plugin for Autodesk Revit or ARCHICAD. BIM provides new methods of working and assists teams from different disciplines collaborating on a single project. The digital model provided by BIM houses the information required to design, construct and maintain the building, allowing potential issues to be identified earlier, leading to costsavings and increased efficiency. New BIM objects are available for all dimensions of the following products: • XENERGY SL • XENERGY LG • FLOORMATE 300-A • FLOORMATE 500-A • FLOORMATE 700-A • PERIMATE DI-A • XENERGY MK Dow says it has also overhauled the library of online technical and sales literature available from RIBA Product Selector for XENERGY, FLOORMATE, and PERIMATE, to reflect recent changes to product lines. Joan Ferrer, technical sales manager at Dow Building Solutions, said: “BIM is revolutionising the construction sector, and the UK is a global leader in BIM adoption. Dow’s new BIM objects will assist architects and specifiers working on large complex construction projects, facilitating co-operation and streamlining workflow. Joan continued: “The diversity of Dow’s XPS product line enables us to offer comprehensive solutions for a wide range of scenarios. It’s important that architects and specifiers can access this information to ensure that they can select the correct Dow product for the situation. As always, our technical desk are ready and willing to share their expertise, and respond to queries.” www.dow.com/en-us/building P In a nutshell, Cr redit Insurance provides protection against bad debt, specically f tion ,for the sub-contractor.
