BIM Increases Life Span Of Specification

A survey by the National Building Specification (NBS) has revealed that the lifespan of specifications are increasing as a result of Building Information Modelling (BIM).

The Specification Survey and Report states that 65 per cent of specifiers believe specifications developed through BIM will last as long as the building itself. The report also suggests that BIM is increasing in popularity, with 75 per cent agreeing that the software will become a central part of all major specifications in the future.

John Staunton, marketing manager at Dulux Trade, said: "It’s clear that BIM is becoming a significant part of the specification process, as it allows specifiers to efficiently select the right products for the job, which saves time and money. Dulux Trade was the first paint manufacturer to have its products listed as BIM objects, and continues to find ways to support architects and designers to incorporate detailed data into BIM models".
