Flowcrete Americas launches BIM Content Library

Continuing its commitment to providing resources designed to support the construction industry’s transition to digital building modeling, Flowcrete Americas has launched a comprehensive Building Information Modeling Content Library featuring its complete range of polymer flooring solutions and traffic deck coating systems. Available online, the new BIM content allows Flowcrete Americas’ flooring systems to be easily incorporated into a 3-D building model and its associated component database. BIM objects or systems represent a shared resource of knowledge about a facility that can be used to make decisions about a building throughout its lifecycle, from the initial drawing, design and construction to daily operations and eventual demolition. The use of BIM, which is expected to rise to 84 percent adoption this year in the U.S. according to a report by McGraw-Hill, has been widely applauded by industry professionals for helping to better manage project schedules, control costs and minimize project errors. Flowcrete Americas’ new library covers the company’s complete portfolio of specialist flooring solutions, as well as its parking deck coatings. Each BIM system offers layers of integral data to support the specification including the system’s technical properties, color availability, green building properties and installation procedures. In addition, each of Flowcrete Americas’ BIM systems includes embedded product information to provide an audit trail for the flooring materials throughout the life of the building, including cleaning and maintenance instructions. Flowcrete Americas is a USGBC member that manufactures a number of flooring materials designed to meet LEED credit criteria in both the environmental quality and material and resources categories. Flowcrete Americas is also part of the AIA CES Providers Network, offering a number of registered Lunch & Learn seminars designed to provide floor specification advice in a wide range of different design and construction scenarios. ?
