Roman Products in Building Information Modelling (BIM)
BIM is an acronym for Building Information Management, or Building Information Modelling or Building Information Model. It is a digital representation of physical and functional characteristics of a facility. BIM creates facilities models within a computer and because they are digital and computer based models of building elements, in Roman’s case Shower Enclosures and Shower Trays, they are far more useful than hand or computer drafted drawings.
Coupled with the visual representation of the product very importantly it also gives products their provenance and standards. The provenance being the manufacturer’s details, for example, the range, door style, code etc. and very importantly all relevant standards, such as EN standards and CE marking. If the product is substituted for an inferior or non-conformant product in any stage of the design plan this will be highlighted to a client as being non-conformant.
