Building Information Modelling

Sika Roofing have been involved/researching BIM (Building Information Modelling) for sometime, attending seminars, conferences, workshops etc, in order to investigate how we can get involved and the requirements of the users within the process (specifiers, designers, contractors etc).


As a innovative & market leading company we have chosen to invest in BIM, which we strongly believe is the future for buildings. It is the Governments intention to utilise BIM on its projects by 2016. Many specifiers, designers & Main Contractors are already utilising this for their projects.


Sika Roofing has created a vast range of BIM objects for our products. Combined together these provide specifiers and designers BIM Objects for over 12 typical "Sika Liquid Plastics systems", covering the majority of the standard flat roofing systems.


Our BIM objects have been created in conjunction with RIBA, in the following software formats to cover the many software packages being utilised by designers & specifiers.


- Autodesk Revit
- ArchiCAD
- Vectorworks
- Bentley
- IFC format (Industry Foundation Class) - software neutral format which should allow the export of files between different packages.


This will allow now users to confidently include structured, intelligent Sika Liquid Plastics system content into their 3D building model.


Sika Liquid Plastics has released its first set of Building Information Modelling (BIM) objects. The objects are being hosted on the NBS National BIM Library where they can be downloaded free of charge.
