Adopting a BIM approach can bring predictability to a construction project, not just around capital delivery but operation too.
For construction professionals, manufacturers and other BIM content developers it is important to create BIM objects that operate in a Common Data Environment (CDE). BIM standards are consistently being reviewed and defined and it is very important for manufacturers to ensure that their BIM objects meet the standards.
At Redland, we fully understood the complexities in creating an extensive collection of BIM objects and worked with RIBA and NBS for the development. The BIM objects were officially launched on the NBS National BIM Library at the end of April.
Redland are very proud to have developed the most extensive set of pitched roofing BIM objects across all UK manufacturers. Objects have been created for not only for tiles but fittings and components, allowing specifiers and designers to create fully integrated roofing systems for their projects.

BMI reveals roofing’s top 20 for the Apprentice of the Year final
Twenty of the country’s best roofing apprentices are gearing up for the two-day final that will see two of them awarded the prestigious title of either pitched or flat roofing BMI Apprentice of the Year 2019. Success in the competition identifies an apprentice as a stand-out individual and as someone with a bright future in the sector. Previous finalists have gone on to win multiple other awards, founded their own businesses or represented the industry and recruited new entrants as Construction Ambassadors with the CITB.
A PIECE OF HOME DELIVERED BY BMI REDLAND CAMBRIAN SLATE FOR PIONEERING HOSPICE
A first in the UK for its innovative use of reconstituted slate in a modern interlocking roofing material, the BMI Redland Cambrian Slate combines great traditional looks with great durability and cost-effectiveness; and so provided an ideal solution for roofing Butterfly House, an important and sensitively-designed £4.8 million hospice in High Wycombe.
Winners and contenders alike praise the BMI Apprentice of the Year competition
Each year, the BMI Apprentice of the Year competition helps apprentices on their journey to build their future career – by helping them with better business understanding, stronger communication skills and improved confidence. These are just some of the benefits that past winners and finalists of the BMI Apprentice of the Year competition have received and, as entries for the 2019 competition continue to arrive, some of past finalists have been reflecting upon the experience and what it taught them.
