(February 6, 2018) - Irvine, CA – Boral Roofing LLC, the largest premium provider of complete roofing solutions in the United States, has partnered with BIMsmith, a leading cloud platform for architects and designers, to produce Building Information Modelling (BIM) content for its leading roofing products.
The data-rich digital models produced by the partnership are significant for enabling architects and building professionals to now incorporate Boral Roofing’s clay and concrete tile roofing products directly into their design projects. Each product file is compatible with the industry standard in building design software, Autodesk Revit, making the integration of Boral Roofing into a building project fast and easy for building professionals. Furthermore, the product files include all the data, specifications, and cut sheets that architects and designers need in one place, saving them valuable time and effort in their day-to-day workflow.
In addition to providing standalone BIM content, Boral Roofing has also made its clay and concrete roof tile solutions available on the BIMsmith Forge application, a free cloud tool that allows building professionals to design roofing assemblies layer by layer using real, accurate product data. This integration allows users to build a roofing assembly utilizing any of Boral Roofing’s product lines and add it to their projects in just minutes.
“Boral has long sought to provide roofing solutions with superior performance, durability, energy efficiency, and curb appeal,” said Shannon Delgado, marketing manager at Boral Roofing. “We are excited that the availability of Boral Roofing BIM content through BIMsmith will further aid the architects and designers who commit themselves to these standards of excellence every day.”
“Boral Roofing offers a rare depth of solutions and customization that make them an invaluable resource to the building design process,” said Benjamin Glunz, CEO of BIMsmith. “We are excited to welcome their industry-leading product lines to the BIMsmith platform.”
