Ideal Standard, the leading provider of innovative bathroom solutions, has been recognised for its digital excellence at the BIMobject Awards 2017, scooping the award for ‘Most Downloaded Brand’.
BIMobject, the leading European platform for BIM (building information modelling), hosts over a thousand brands, including leading international names from the world of construction. Ideal Standard’s comprehensive portfolio of product downloads, available in a range of file types including Revit and ArchiCAD, went live on the platform in February 2017 and has already totalled over 270,000 downloads. This huge success led to the company beating off competition from six other nominees to be crowned the most downloaded of 2017.
BIM is the technology that underpins the digitalisation of the construction industry. Its intuitive 3D model-based process offers intelligent insight that allows professionals to efficiently plan, design and construct buildings. The efficiency and cost saving benefits BIM brings to construction projects means architects, engineers and construction professionals are increasingly using it to make product specifications.
Claire Baillet, VP Marketing at Ideal Standard, commented on the award win: “The built environment landscape has never been more demanding than it is today, with improved sustainability and advanced performance requirements on every project. We are committed to finding innovative ways to make our customers’ working life easier and more productive, and BIMobject is a hugely important resource for the professionals we work with.
“There are currently over 2,900 Ideal Standard product pages and files on BIMobject and we’re continuously adding to this each week to provide the tools our specifier partners need. We are delighted to be this year’s most downloaded brand on BIMobject, and it’s evidence our wide range of products and file types are proving valuable to the industry.”
The BIMobject Awards were held at BIMobject LIVE 2017, a two-day conference in Malmo Sweden for building product manufacturers, interior manufacturers and construction professionals.
