Ruskin launches BIM database

Ruskin Air Management, BIM, air distribution, fire control, smoke control

Ruskin Air Management, which specialises in the manufacture of ventilation, air distribution and fire and smoke control, has launched an extensive and freely available library of BIM (building information modelling) objects to support the work of designers, installers and operators of building engineering systems.

The library will be updated with new product information, but already holds a huge amount of free-to-download data on fire and smoke-control dampers that engineers can directly incorporate into their BIM models.

Ruskin’s 3D objects include key data defining each product’s physical characteristics, materials and properties. The objects can be directly incorporated into BIM models and form part of virtual 3D designs to help construction and installation teams identify any potential ‘clashes’ so they can iron out any problems before work begins.

Ruskin encourages library users to send comments and provide feedback on the usability of the BIM objects to help develop and improve this portal and create more interaction.
