ASSA ABLOY Security Doors Sees BIM Uptake

23 May 2016

ASSA ABLOY Security Doors, a UK division of ASSA ABLOY, the global leader in door opening solutions is beginning to see the uptake of BIM.

As the first doorset manufacturers to launch a BIM offering, ASSA ABLOY Security Doors has begun to receive requests for its BIM objects, following the deadlines passing for both the use of BIM on all Government projects and the adoption of the Government Soft Landings process.

ASSA ABLOY Security Doors’ BIM offering contains 72 door objects that can be used in standard applications such as corridors, toilets, offices and fire exits. A data centre for a well-known technology company, has recently been supplied with a range of doorsets, which have BIM objects attached, the BIM objects will aid maintenance activities in order to make whole life asset management possible.

Brian Sofley, Managing Director at ASSA ABLOY Security Doors, said: “The successful delivery of the Government Construction Strategy (GCS) Level 2 BIM is creating the pathway to “Digital Built Britain” and the promise of BIM Level 3 in the future.

“As the journey towards the digitalisation of the built environment progresses, we believe that as an early adopter of BIM in our industry, we are in a prime position to assist specifiers and contractors in using BIM as it was intended, to enable first time fit.

“As part of an international group with strong financial background, we have the capabilities to support the widespread BIM adoption and our future proof solutions help to mitigate risk across a wide range of end user markets, including the commercial, education, health, transport, retail and residential sectors.”

Doors only form a small part of buildings and are often considered at a later stage of the build. However, any change in dimension or material to these types of products could have a significant impact on other structural elements of the build. The creation of a central model under BIM, which each discipline involved in a buildings’ design and construction has access to and can update, is crucial for specifiers of security doors.
