Laufen extends its commitment in BIM

Nearly 1,000 bathroom products of Laufen are now available for architects and bathroom planners on internet at the BIMobject cloud and at bim.laufen.com as BIM-compatible data.

As a leading international bathroom manufacturer Laufen is aware of the increasing importance of the intelligent Building Information Modeling (BIM) for professional construction planning. Therefore Laufen provides online a major part of its current product portfolio, including the bathroom collections Kartell by Laufen, Val and Ino, in the form of BIM-compatible data. At http://bim.laufen.com architects and planners who work with the BIM system will find around 1,000 products of the company’s major bathroom series in the Revit and ArchiCAD file format. Besides the graphical data also numerous technical attributes – such as available sizes, colours and options – can be found in the BIM-portal of Laufen as well as links to helpful additional technical Information.

The definition of substantial BIM data must also be promoted by the industry. Our extensive work-up serves all those involved in the construction process, both in the planning, construction and maintenance phases.” explains Marc Viardot, Director Marketing and Product of Laufen.

In particular, the company expects an easier exchange of information between planners and trades and more secure planning for all those involved in the planning process. Thanks to the BIM process an overall increase in productivity of the entire planning process in terms of cost, schedule and quality is also expected as cost and planning benefits throughout the life cycle of the building. Laufen will therefore continue to maintain and expand its portfolio of BIM-compatible files in the future.

We are pleased with the strong commitment of Laufen to provide nearly 1,000 sanitary products to almost 250,000 registered users of the BIMobject cloud. The decision of this internationally acclaimed manufacturer to use BIMobject as an exclusive distribution platform, is a special recognition of our central market position in the field of BIM content.” said John Reischböck, COO and co-founder of BIMobject AB and CEO of the BIMobject Deutschland GmbH.
