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 pitches up with a new flat roof training facility
Following the completion of a new BMI Icopal flat roofing training area, and the refurbishment of the existing BMI Redland pitched training facility, BMI’s National Training Centre is now able to offer contractors, merchants and students an extensive range of both pitched and flat roof courses at the one location. This makes BMI the only UK roofing manufacturer able to offer training in both disciplines and at the one site.
