Take advantage of huge opportunities for increased specification and product inclusion within projects, through BIM

Many birds partner with larger animals to clean ticks, insects and parasites from their skin in return for food

The role of the manufacturer today is more demanding as models and data are expected to be supplied for a project. Every manufacturer and fabricator of products for the construction industry should be aware of how the implementation of BIM by its customers opens up opportunities for increased specification and product inclusion within projects.

Excitech’s services are designed to help you compete in the BIM world. Whether you are an equipment manufacturer wishing to optimise your product through simulation, get to market quicker and ultimately have the freedom to innovate in a highly competitive world. Or, whether you wish to ensure that your products are featured in BIM libraries and industry available web sites to make them far easier for architects and designers to use; Excitech’s breadth of knowledge and expertise in assisting manufacturers can accelerate your project delivery and make you best in class.

The Benefits of BIM for Manufacturers

The information embedded in the model elements will depend on the types of product, such as building services, furniture, windows, etc. Once your element is selected and placed into a model, you’re in business. Your product is highlighted in schedules and material take-offs generated by other members of the project team.

Some key benefits prevail:

  • Fewer queries from designers
  • Differentiation of products/supplier
  • Product preference at design time, during specification and during construction
  • Increased marketing leads
  • Enables you to participate in a collaborative BIM workflow
