Rennes, France, 2. July 2018 - Transair®, a business unit of the Low Pressure Connectors Division Europe (formerly Legris) of Parker Hannifin Corporation, the global leader in motion and control technologies, has announced that it is making its Building Information Modeling (BIM) product range available to construction professionals.With its BIM object families, Transair now offers design offices a simple, flexible and practical solution for the design of aluminium and stainless steel networks for the transport of industrial fluids.
Under the new initiative, Transair is partnering with start-up BIM&CO for the modelling, integration and distribution of its product offering to Europe, Asia and the Middle East (BSP ISO), and America (NPT ANSI). BIM is a collaborative e-platform process involving the generation and management of digital representations of physical and functional characteristics of buildings. It encourages and helps professionals in the sector to better control each phase of a building's life cycle, from its design to its destruction. The announcement and launch follow a successful test phase carried out to ensure that expectations, specifications and characteristics meet market needs as closely as possible.
To ensure compatibility with BIM, all Transair families are available in REVIT format, in Level Of Detail (LOD) 200 and 400. The REVIT ‘intelligent’ template simplifies the process of designing networks using Transair products helping to reduce construction costs and foster better coordination between various aspects of the overall project.
“With BIM, the way construction professionals work changes, with multiple gains for the sector as a whole," said Nicolas Maupillé, in charge of the project at Transair. He added: "Transair wishes to fully integrate itself into the spirit of BIM by providing the various players with a quality service that will enable them to design their networks intuitively and thus remain focused on their projects.”
“It was important for us to offer design offices objects whose data is properly structured and filled in," commented Guillaume Tétard, head of the Transair Business Unit. “In addition to the quality of the objects modelled, we appreciated the support of the teams during all stages of the project."
Etienne Mullie, CEO of BIM&CO said: “BIM&CO's policy is to offer manufacturers easy access to BIM through support and state-of-the-art technology. We offer a set of tools allowing manufacturers to structure and distribute their product data in the form of BIM Ready objects. Their objects are thus adapted to all stages of the process, from design to construction, operation and maintenance. Our goal is not to lock the customer into a proprietary solution, but to accompany him and give the ‘keys’ to achieve autonomy. It is this autonomy, and with it the assurance of retaining control of its brand and product data, that has convinced Transair, with whom we are proud to collaborate.”
To benefit from this new service, simply register on the BIM&CO platform (https://www.bimandco.com), then access the Transair area and finally download the objects needed to build the desired network free of charge.
