The process of creating a digital representation of the physical and functional characteristics of buildings and infrastructure, known as Building Information Modelling (BIM), is now firmly established in Australia and New Zealand’s design, architecture, engineering, construction and asset management industries.
One of the most popular BIM software applications is UNIFI – a Revit integrated, cloud-based content management platform used to organise and manage building content that is widely used by architectural, engineering, construction and manufacturing firms.
The UNIFI content management platform ensures data quality, consistency and anywhere access to BIM content – across teams and global offices. UNIFI allows BIM content library administrators to organise and manage the various Revit content assets used by design teams through an easy-to-use, web-based portal and control who has publishing access, ensuring the quality of content going into projects meets the required standards. UNIFI empowers design teams with fast and easy access to the right BIM content to produce higher-quality project documentation and data.
Luke Johnston of IGS BIM Solutions who specialise in BIM content creation and strategy services for product manufacturers suggests UNIFI is a great platform for suppliers to leverage in exchanging their BIM content with specifiers. “With so many of Australia and New Zealand’s largest design firms using UNIFI to manage their BIM content, it makes sense for manufacturers to provide their BIM data directly through the UNIFI cloud, in addition to other platforms such as their own websites. It also ensures designers have access to the manufacturer’s current BIM data libraries as they make updates over time”. About the Moddex library hosted on UNIFI, Luke says, “All the Revit content hosted on UNIFI by manufacturers needs to pass a QA check before publishing. Designers can use the families supplied by Moddex with confidence in the knowledge that the library meets this quality requirement”.
