Homasote Partners with BIMsmith to Provide Digital Models for Building Professionals
(Elgin, IL—June 21, 2018) Homasote®, international leader in green building products, has partnered with BIMsmith®, a free cloud platform for architects and designers, to provide Building Information Modeling (BIM) content for its innovative product line, Homasote 440 Soundbarrier.
Homasote’s move to provide digital models helps streamline the design process for building professionals looking to incorporate Homasote products into their projects. Homasote’s BIM content is compatible with the building design software leader Autodesk® Revit and enables building professionals to specify the use of Homasote products earlier in the design process.
By partnering with BIMsmith, Homasote’s 440 Soundbarrier structural board is accessible by designers on BIMsmith Market, a cloud tool for building product research and selection, and on BIMsmith Forge, a free Revit configurator tool that simplifies the creation of structural assemblies like walls and floors.
“Our mission has always been to provide exceptional value for everyone who interacts with our products,” said Warren Flicker, CEO of Homasote. “With the addition of our products to the BIMsmith platform, we are seeking to enhance the value that architects, and designers receive when they choose Homasote.”
“Homasote has a longstanding reputation of both environmental excellence and performance among building professionals,” said Benjamin Glunz, CEO of BIMsmith. “Their products fulfill an important role in the construction industry and we’re thrilled to have them as a part of BIMsmith.”
