Medical IT isolated power systems and surgeon’s control panels manufactured by Bender are now available in BIM (Building Information Modelling) format.
BIM is a 3D modelling process that enable architects, designers and engineers to specify and design-in specific products from the outset. It uses manufacturer-specific content to help create accurate designs of new buildings and rooms, which is made available to stakeholders in more accurate interactive 3D format. It enables better engagement and feedback with the end-user and others throughout the entire building design process.
BIM designs brings together detailed information about every component of a building. This not only reduces time and cost of the design process, but it is more accurate, reducing the risks of costly design errors and speeds up the procurement and build process.
BIM data can be used to illustrate the entire building life-cycle, from inception, design and build to facilities management. When BIM is used to develop new healthcare facilities it enables long-term operational efficiency and more cost-effective maintenance regimes to be included from the outset. Hospital estates teams are better equipped with more accurate information about the whole building.
BIM modelled data is available directly from Bender UK, and is due to be hosted online in download format. For more information on Bender BIM format information please contact Bender UK.
The UK Government’s Construction 2025: Industrial Strategy for Construction says lower costs, faster delivery, lower emissions and improvements in exports and government-led BIM is set to play a vital role in the digital future of design and long term facility management, implementing change across all industries.
