A & G – A BIM First
Acheson & Glover (A&G) , a leading manufacturer of premium quality hard landscaping and precast concrete products, are pleased to announce they are the first hard landscaping concrete manufacturer to go ‘live’ on BIM.
The National BIM (Building Information Modelling) Library, developed and managed by NBS for the UK construction industry, is a free of charge online resource enabling construction professionals to locate and download generic and proprietary BIM objects.
This service aims to host a comprehensive range of systems and products and to become the primary source of standard and proprietary BIM objects. A&G recognises the growing need for this type of information among professional designers.
A&G Managing Director, Stephen Acheson said:
‘We are delighted to be part of BIM. It provides us with the opportunity to promote our products in an area that will fast become an integral part of the design needs of the ‘built environment.’
‘Being the first hard landscaping concrete manufacturer to do so is another in a long list of ‘firsts’ for us, having been the first to have all our products CE marked for example. This is all in keeping with A&G’s ethos of being in touch with market trends and customer needs.’
The NBS National BIM Library aims to increase access to the quality information construction
professionals need, to make the right decisions at the right stage of the building process.
