Hochiki Europe Becomes First Fire Safety Manufacturer in NBS National BIM Library

23 Mar 2016

Ahead of the Government’s 2016 Level 2 targets, leading fire safety system manufacturer, Hochiki Europe has become the first company of its kind to provide Building Information Modelling (BIM) components for the NBS National BIM Library.

Ahead of the Government’s 2016 Level 2 targets, leading fire safety system manufacturer, Hochiki Europe has become the first company of its kind to provide Building Information Modelling (BIM) components for the NBS National BIM Library.

To aid designers, architects and specifiers already working within the BIM framework, the company has invested in the creation of a new range of BIM content based on a selection of its core fire detection and emergency lighting products.

BIM is designed to improve consistency and collaboration in design across the construction sector as well as improve efficiency, reduce wastage and cut costs across the whole lifetime of the building, from design to demolition. The modelling software allows architects, system designers and end-users to examine the location and qualities of all elements appearing in building designs.

London’s University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (UCLH), one of the largest in the UK, is now operating its refurbishment program within a BIM framework which has been supported using the design and supply of Hochiki Europe’s new technology.

Paul Adams, deputy marketing manager at Hochiki Europe, commented: “BIM marks an industry-wide shift in the approach to design in architecture, engineering and construction so it’s not surprising that we’re already seeing significant demand for BIM modelled fire safety products in these sectors.

“Efficiency has always been a key focus of ours, and by supporting early-adopting customers we can reduce inefficiency in the supply chain and help the Government reach its 2016 targets.”
