neaco’s Spectrum range of modular handrails, balustrade, balconies and structural glass is now available in the National BIM (Building Information Modelling) Library, the construction industry’s free-to-use online resource of NBS standard BIM content.
Developed and managed by NBS, National BIM Library enables construction professionals to locate and download generic and proprietary BIM objects available in industry-neutral IFC format and formats compatible with Autodesk Revit, ArchiCAD, Vectorworks, Tekla and Bentley. It is the latest NBS initiative designed to provide, share and maintain quality information for the built environment. The service aims to host a comprehensive range of systems and products for various building elements to become the primary source of standard and proprietary BIM objects.
neaco’s Managing Director, Alan Green, said: “With their class-leading Lifetime Guarantee and modular systems guaranteeing uniform quality and design accuracy, neaco’s precision-engineered products are ideally suited to National BIM Library, which is fast emerging as vital means of establishing a common approach to quality standards across the construction industry and encouraging consistency and best practice.”
“BIM is an information-rich resource and a highly effective process which will prove to be invaluable for our customers. It will increase access to the information they need to make the right decisions at the right stage of the building process.”
Available in powder coated aluminium or stainless steel – or a combination of both – Spectrum is characterized by smooth, clean lines offering a high architectural aesthetic which is extremely durable and maintenance-free. The range includes a wood-effect finish and a comprehensive choice of infills, from toughened glass and rails to mesh, grilles and perforated panels. Modular assembly is achieved with internal fixtures and provides low-energy, eco-friendly construction requiring no welding or hot works. For industrial environments the mill-finished Spectrum Genesis is extremely durable, fully recyclable and corrosion-free.
