Accurate planning with Cembrit – update of BIM objects for all facade boards


Cembrit has launched new updated digital BIM objects (Building Information Modelling) for all large-format fibre cement boards. The update includes Cembrit Cover, Cembrit Solid, Cembrit Transparent & Cembrit Patina boards and are available on www.bimobject.com and www.cembrit.com.

The format, thickness and above alle, the different surface textures of Cembrit's facade boards can now be read into 3D CAD drawings and virtual building models. 

“Providing customers with BIM objects enables architects and others to incorporate Cembrit’s 3D objects into their project easily. Being able to do so facilitates both an enhanced accuracy, flexibility and increases the understanding for all parties involved in the building process”, Stinne Sander, Head of Product Management, Cembrit Holding explains

By publishing the BIM objects on the cloud-based solution bimobject.com, Cembrit is able to continuously update and add information to the objects, ensuring that everything from geometry to environmental data and energy ratings stay updated and accurate. Cembrit BIM objects can be downloaded from the website or directly from the Revit programme. BIMobject® is one of the most requested portals for all BIM users within the construction industry.

In conclusion, Stinne Sander emphasises that BIM has become an important tool for companies to remain competitive. If you do not have them, you may be excluded from various contexts and she further elaborates that Cembrit expects that BIM will become mandatory for public buildings in the near future. Needless to say, this initiative would get the development of BIM going even faster. 

BIM (Building Information Modelling) has become an efficient and appreciated tool and a new way of thinking in the construction industry. With BIM, the project-relevant information, details and blueprints of all components are networked into a virtual building model and used jointly by architects, engineers and contractors- for planning and maintenance throughout the entire lifecycle.
