How Wavin’s Revit package can save you time and hassle in BIM

BIM (Building Information Modelling) is set to transform the construction industry, with increasing numbers of projects being 3D modelled to save substantial costs by optimising designs at an early stage.

With Government mandating BIM for all of its schemes from 4th April 2016, ahead-of-the-curve project teams are already reaping the benefits of being able to achieve greater design certainty for every inch of a project.

How can our Revit package support engineers and contractors?

As the UK’s leading manufacturer of plumbing, rainwater and drainage systems we have adopted BIM in order to support and assist engineers and contractors in their project, making life easier for professionals specifying above ground drainage systems.

Built in Revit, this intelligent system removes uncertainty in pipe design to make specifying Wavin’s extensive range of above ground drainage products accurate, cost effective and efficient.

Key USPs of the Wavin Revit package for BIM

  • Product validation – The content package will only allow designs to be created which can be delivered from the available product portfolio, providing confidence that what is designed is available and can be installed
  • Automatic routing preferences – If you’re looking to connect different pipe sizes, Wavin Revit content will work out what fittings are required
  • Creation of an accurate bill of materials as you design, saving valuable time.

The comprehensive package includes 3D geometries in Revit and structured data sheets for a range of products including Osma Soil & Waste, Hep2O flexible plumbing, Tigris K1 press-fit plumbing and Wavin AS. These can then be downloaded and incorporated into your BIM model.

We have put a lot of work into creating a content package for Revit which is simple and intuitive to use and three-dimensional piping designs created using the package will be robust and deliverable throughout a construction project.

BIM is changing the way buildings are being designed and constructed and our new Revit content package is supporting the industry by helping a full and detailed 3D plumbing system to be created easily, quickly and accurately.
