Building Information Modelling (BIM)

Building regulations require Architects and Engineers to seek opportunities to reduce energy consumption and to increase the use of renewable sources.

In addition, the way in which a building’s specification information is provided to the client is being revolutionised by Building Information Modelling (BIM).

The benefits of BIM are tangible, not only for the client, but for many stakeholders in the design, specification, construction and management of a building asset:

  • Accurate building design with data rich design content
  • Significant efficiencies in asset construction, quantity surveying & system performance assessment
  • Accurate & detailed asset data to make building facilities management more efficient & less costly

The development of BIM is the result of collaboration between stakeholders in our industry, including architects, engineers, contractors, surveyors, facilities managers and product manufacturers.

nVent Raychem Trace-It

Trace-It is an engineering software “Add-in” downloadable directly into Autodesk Revit BIM software.

The software tool allows the design of single pipe hot water temperature maintenance services with self-regulating heating cables, as well as pipe frost protection systems for exposed pipework in and around commercial and residential buildings.

nVent Raychem Trace-It provides:

  • Quick, easy & accurate system design without leaving BIM Revit software
  • Thermal heat loss data, electrical loadings & automatic Bill of Materials based on the design data within the model
  • An engineering specification based on the installed system
  • A complete BIM data package with automatic Revit “schedule” creation at the click of a button

Trace-It is available free to download from Autodesk’s “Apps Exchange” library https://apps.exchange.autodesk.com/en
