Why specifiers use BIM
Want to build relationships and get specified in BIM projects? Get straight to the heart of digital design by finding out what architects, engineers, and interior designers need from you.
Exploring designer demands
You want to improve your brand visibility. Reach the right professionals. And get specified in projects. But in order to tick those boxes, you need to understand the people behind the downloads. So, we’ve interviewed more than a dozen architects, interior designers, and engineers to find out:
- Why specifiers use BIM
- How specifiers use BIM
- What they need from manufacturers
- What they consider important
- How they work with manufacturers
- How BIM facilitates sustainable design
Building Information Modeling offers an overabundance of benefits. It helps architects, engineers, contractors, and owners/operators (AECO) collaborate to efficiently produce building projects that deliver on budget and on time.
But what do they need from you as a manufacturer?
Why BIM objects?
Working with BIM requires that all building elements are available in a digital format. So, manufacturers need to deliver BIM objects. These not only represent the physical properties of the products but also include other essential data such as product information, installation instructions, energy consumption, eco-labels, operating costs, and product lifetime.
So, how can you increase the likelihood that they choose your products for their next design?
Want a quick sneak peek into the e-book?
BIM offers a wide range of professional benefits, the most important ones being productivity and cross-industry coordination.
My goal is to use the best BIM objects for my projects and use products that really exist in the market — not generic 3D models.
If a manufacturer does not offer BIM objects, we will switch to one who does.
