Wienerberger announces the launch of ‘BIM Lab’
Wienerberger, the leading provider of wall, roof and landscaping innovations, has announced that it will be launching a fully functional Building Information Modelling (BIM) portal on its website. As of April, BIM Lab will be fully live and accessible through Wienerberger.co.uk.
The new portal will be the first time that Wienerberger has opened up its product and construction system portfolio for use with BIM technology – allowing architects and specifiers the opportunity to get a clear understanding of exactly how certain products will practically function in their projects
Wienerberger will be making full BIM models available on products right across its three divisions of roof, wall and landscaping
Harald Schwarzmayr, Managing Director of Wienerberger UK, commented:
We pride ourselves on innovating on behalf of our customers, and it’s clear to us that BIM provides an incredible level of information and insight for architects and specifiers at the crucial initial design stages of projects. As such, we feel it is really important for Wienerberger to have an easy-to-access BIM platform to showcase exactly how well our products perform, and indeed how versatile they are.
We understand that evolving technology has a huge potential to transform the construction industry, and we are committed to ensuring that we translate the latest thought leadership and research into practical innovations for our customers to use. Our BIM Lab is great example of that, and just one of many more that we hope to launch over the next few years.
