Corobrik has introduced the latest Building Information Modelling (BIM) files for the benefit of architects and property development professionals in the built environment.

BIM brings together digital representations of all physical and functional characteristics of a new design. The output of this process is the Building Information Model – a digital description of every aspect of a building expressed in the form of a building model which is available to all working on a project.

Corobrik commercial director, Musa Shangase, says that the introduction of this groundbreaking technology and software, which has completely revolutionised how buildings are designed and planned in Europe and America, correlates with Corobrik’s focus on technology and the ever-changing building landscape.

It is compatible with software used by architects such as Archicad, Revit and so on. “The architects transfer the BIM content while they are working. These files are embedded in their models and specify the products to be used. The importance of this is that, when specifying products, they can immediately see its effects on available space, style and decor, technical requirements,” says Shangase.

He adds, “Corobrik is proud to be the only brickmaker in Africa to introduce BIM to its clients which gives architects an added tool to streamline the design process.”

These handy BIM files can be downloaded from the Corobrik website.
