Mapei develops BIM systems

Mapei is working with Arcat Inc. to develop its wide array of products into Building Information Modeling systems.

With BIM software, architects can build libraries of information about products they wish to specify in their construction plans. Information such as technical data sheets, MSDS sheets, LEED data and specifications can be gathered into a single system, which can then be stored in BIM plans.

Mapei’s Tile & Stone Installation Systems are already built into BIM objects, and products in the Concrete Restoration Systems line should be added to the Arcat Web site by the end of the first quarter of 2010.

In addition to creating accurate graphics, Arcat and Mapei have added appropriate product data to the systems. Also, Arcat has embedded links in the system to Mapei’s CSI 3-Part specs.
