The BIM process has revolutionised the construction and engineering industries playing a critical role in the improvement of project efficiency. E+I Engineering are committed to supporting our clients by providing direct access to product specific busbar BIM content for our patented Powerbar range. Our intelligent BIM libraries are maintained and updated to reflect all product changes to ensure complete accuracy in planning.
BSI Accredited BIM content
E+I Engineering are the first busbar manufacturer to be accredited with the new BSI kitemark for BIM. BS 8541 recognises best practice in the management and production of BIM objects and associated product data in accordance with BS 8541-1, BS 8541-3 and BS 8541 – 4.
Using our BIM Content
Our Manufacturer specific busbar models can be accessed from our online BIM portal and directly placed into a 3D BIM environment. Easy to insert and modify to produce accurate and efficient plans, containment drawings and bills of quantities to form a fully integrated overall project.
E+I Engineering’s high-quality digitised BIM data is available in a range of formats including Revit & DWG for ease of use.
E+I Engineering have done a great job creating functional BIM content for their busway products, each model is easy to adapt to match the project specification. Thank you to the BIM team for sharing your busway families with us for this job, they have been a breeze to work with.
Not only do E+I Engineering’s BIM objects look great, they are very straightforward and adaptable with features such as the built-in snap nodes making correct alignment of each object quick and easy. I like how the models automatically hold each object to their max lengths per busway type and how the busway libraries are categorised, making it easy to bulk load models for the exact product you need whilst also giving you access to others if required.
We received excellent support from E+I Engineering’s BIM team who were easy to work with and always willing to help. I look forward to working with E+I Engineering and their BIM library in the future.
By using our manufacturer specific BIM objects in your initial design model, you create a more streamlined process where models are created using accurate information, leading to faster approval times and an earlier start to production.
The BIM process provides a new level of transparency combining all aspects of the construction project, enabling stakeholders to co- ordinate their plans more efficiently.
Busbar is one of the most costly products fitted in a construction project. By using our intelligent BIM content at an early stage of the design process you can accurately plan your busbar route before elements such as plumbing are planned in. This reduces the number of bespoke busbar configurations required to fit the space; In turn saving money.
BIM doesn’t just transform the way we design, plan and build it also transforms the way we manage facilities throughout their life span. The increased visibility achieved through BIM creates efficiencies in space management, maintenance, safety and energy analysis.
