CHICAGO, IL (January 27, 2023) – UFP-Edge, a leading manufacturer and supplier of innovative siding, pattern, and trim 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, engineers, and other construction professionals.
The partnership includes a suite of new Building Information Modeling (BIM) product models for UFP-Edge products.

The partnership also places UFP-Edge products, like their Thermally Modified Wood siding and Native Woods shiplap collections, 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.
“UFP-Edge is committed to going the extra mile with architects and designers to help them design beautiful exteriors and inviting interiors,” 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 UFP-Edge for their BIM projects.”
