Deckorators Partners with BIMsmith to Launch New BIM Tools for Architects and Designers

CHICAGO, IL (January 27, 2023) – Deckorators, a leading manufacturer and supplier of decking and railing products, has announced a partnership with BIMsmith, the leading product research platform for building professionals, for the development of new Building Information Modeling (BIM) tools for architects, designers, and other building professionals. 

The partnership includes a suite of new Building Information Modeling (BIM) product models for Deckorators products. These data-rich digital models contain key data representing both geometric and aesthetic properties of each product, allowing for highly accurate early-stage design. Each model integrates seamlessly with Autodesk Revit, the leading BIM design software used by building professionals globally.

The partnership also places Deckorators products, like their exclusive mineral-based composite technology, in front of a global audience of building design professionals on BIMsmith Market, the leading cloud platform used by architects and engineers to conduct building product research. 

“Deckorators is committed to going the extra mile with architects, designers, and builders to help them design projects ranging from beautiful outdoor living spaces and exteriors to marine construction,” said Jase DeBoer, Senior Manager of B.A.S.E. Development at UFP Retail Solutions, a team focused on providing education, resources and innovation to builders, architects, specifiers, and engineers. “Our BIM content on BIMsmith makes it easier than ever for building professionals to choose Deckorators for their BIM projects.”

“Throughout the specification process, architects are constantly in search of quality materials that they know will look incredible both now and long into the future,” said Benjamin Glunz, CEO at BIMsmith. “On behalf of the entire BIMsmith community of architects, we’re excited to welcome Deckorators to the platform.”
