Data richness – with backing from NBS, the property-set information attached to each object is of a high quality. The objects will have parametric geometric behaviour and standard facility management properties (COBie).
Effective workflow – proprietary manufacturer information will populate standard NBS property-sets, allowing the scheduling of generic and proprietary objects together – assisting with product selection, and the maintenance of the facility after it is built.
Designed for UK custom and practice – objects are pre-configured in common UK metric sizes so they are ready to use immediately. British Standards and Building Regulation dimensions have been considered in the design of the objects where appropriate.
Maintained objects – as standards and regulations change and new building technologies emerge, NationalBIMLibrary.com objects will be reviewed and updated.
Improved efficiency – saving time and money lost through traditional forms of design and construction.
