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

Boucherville, Quebec, Canada (20 September 2022) – Norbec, a North American manufacturer of prefabricated walk-in coolers, freezers, doors, and insulated metal panels, 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, engineers, and other construction professionals. 

The partnership involves the creation of data-rich digital models of Norbec products that integrate seamlessly with BIM design software used by building professionals globally. Each product model contains key data representing both geometric and performance capabilities of each product, allowing for highly accurate early-stage design. The digital models are designed to integrate natively with Autodesk Revit, the leading architectural design software worldwide.  

The partnership also places Norbec products 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. 

“For more than 40 years, Norbec has been providing our customers with innovative solutions that help them achieve their design goals,” said Laurence Roy, Marketing Manager at Norbec. “Our partnership with BIMsmith is another way for us to continue to support building professionals in every step of their journey.” 

“Finding materials that are both resilient and energy-efficient is essential in the practice of architecture and design,” said Benjamin Glunz, CEO at BIMsmith. “Norbec provides that and more with tailor-made solutions that are able to meet the needs of projects around the world.”
