BIM progress on industrial and commercial heating — Ross Anderson.

The completion of BIM product data templates (PDTs) for five categories of commercial and industrial heating equipment has been concluded by ICOM (the Industrial & Commercial Energy Association). The public consultation period is complete, and the comments will be reviewed by CIBSE before they are approved as the industry standard. These are among the first product groups in the building-services sector to be distributed for public consultation by CIBSE.

The product categories are air heaters, gas and oil burners, gas boosters and direct-fired storage water heaters. These PDTs are generic and manufacturer-neutral.

PDTs are standardised product-group questionnaires, which manufacturers will complete with their product information. The completed PDTs will then become product data sheets (PDSs) containing digitised information on each manufacturer’s product.

Ross Anderson, director of ICOM, said, ‘ICOM has taken a pivotal co-ordination role in the development of PDTs for industrial and commercial heating products, acting as an interface and a moderator between CIBSE and ICOM members. To achieve this, ICOM members have come together to share their knowledge and create industry-wide templates that will prove to be significant to the building-services industry as a whole.

ICOM members have also made significant progress with the creation of other PDTs covering other categories of industrial and commercial heating products. They will be put out for public consultation soon.
