Saint-Gobain PAM UK has launched the first phase of its BIM library covering above-ground drainage. It covers the most popular ranges of Ensign soil, Eezi-Fit and VortX floor drain products. Compliant with Revit from 2012 onwards, the library provides users with a virtual-information model combined with product-specific literature and individual component datasheets covering information such as size, weight and fire ratings.

The library uses parameters to define relationships between components, giving users access to information that is co-ordinated and reliable.
