Michelmersh Brick Holdings has set up a website supplying building information modelling (BIM) data for its products.
Building Information Modelling (BIM) describes the process of designing a building collaboratively using one comprehensive system of computer models. The process involves the generation and management of, information rich, digital representation of both the physical and functional characteristics of a facility.
Their site, www.thebimstore.co.uk, seeks to provide you with the BIM data for all their products in formats which they hope will suit the various software packages that are available for Building Industry Modelling.
MBH director Frank Hanna said: “As the first and only brick manufacturer in the UK to have an operational BIM specification data base we are proud to be leading the way in our sector. This only serves to enhance our position as ‘Britain’s Brick Specialists’ and win further brick specification work as a result.”
