What is BIM?

In the world of installations, integrated design through three-dimensional software is now indispensable for the designer, the work manager and the installer. A methodology that allows managing, organizing and monitoring all phases of the project, ensuring the ability to control both constructive technology and interdisciplinary co-ordination and the flow of information is essential in today’s fast paced world. (Drum Roll) Enter BIM, or building information modeling.

 

 

 

BIM stands for Building Information Modeling, a computable representation of the functional features of a building that arises from the need to fully manage the building process, from the construction drawing to the lifelong lifecycle management. This objective is achieved by using architectural, structural and installation modeling platforms that can describe and structure buildings with representations that go beyond the three canonical dimensions but also cover the dimensions of the construction work time and cost and the size of maintenance processes to best manage the building itself.

 

BIM has actually been around for quite some time. Back in the 90’s BIM was really starting to take off, however the recession caused it to be quieted in its early stages. BIM might seem like a completely new concept because of its struggles to make it through tough economic times, however the transfer from CAD to BIM is now among us. NUPI NIRON is known for its innovative practices and because of this has decided to bring BIM to America along with their innovative PPRCT piping systems.

 

 What are the benefits of using BIM?

The benefits of a project based on BIM products are far beyond the simple realistic representation of the three-dimensional item, starting from the dynamic and controlled extraction of the updated data, to the implementation of all possible logical, analytical and structural connections with a view to a system of Cloud sharing. A BIM approach, obviously set on totally BIM compliant systems, gives the opportunity to further explore the subject and develop a multitude of post-projects, quick solutions and incomparable costs. A BIM-made model allows to check plant installation solutions in terms of integrated design from both a calculating and a computing point of view, by automatically decoding info-graphic, computing and project results.

 

A design approach of this type would drop the costs associated with the management and maintenance of each work, allowing monitoring of each plant until its disposal. Each intervention could be studied up to a very high level of detail with a complete view of any possible clash detection of other units present throughout the plant, making it possible to design any maintenance intervention without the need for continuous on-site visits or last minute changes during the installation, with full compliance with the preventive chrono program and full remote supervision.

 

 

 

What Nupi Offers With BIM

At the head of an efficient BIM design there must be a completely BIM compliant product. This is NUPI goal. The company invested in providing the user with the BIM libraries of its products. Each model contains all the graphic and informational details needed to recognize the components and the manufacturer, with the appropriate tools that automate each operation in a MEP project, maximizing its usability at all stages of the building process.

 

Nupi Niron’s PBIMs are virtual models of BIM totally compliant NUPI products including all the information provided by the international regulatory landscape. Additionally, the MEP library in the * .iez format of the items is available for installers to use within the Autodesk Fabrication software database. In these library each item (*.itm) is identified by its dimensional and connection feature to facilitate its interface in plant assemblies.They are in RVT format for Autodesk Revit 2016. NUPI PBIM is regularly updated and optimized.

 

 How It All Connects

 Nupi Niron has made sizeable infrastructure and technological investments in the United States since they introduced themselves into the American market. They have built manufacturing plants in Houston, TX and Early Branch, SC which are projected to bring at least 37 new jobs in each area. Each facility utilizes modern, state-of-the-art computer-controlled production equipment and methods, which together with continuous quality control systems guarantees products of the highest quality.

 

When the production quality, BIM, and the helpful hand of Service Reps., Inc. are combined, installing and understanding your piping systems becomes much easier than what you would typically experience with copper, carbon steel, or stainless steel materials. Niron has an advanced beta crystalline PP-RCT Polypropylene structure that allows it to be applicable in a wide range of everyday and technically-challenging applications. Please contact us for more information regarding Niron and Niron training or visit Nupi America’s Niron Page for more product information.
