LIQUID ROOFING TECHNICAL SERVICES
TECHNICAL CALCULATIONS AND BESPOKE ROOFING SPECIFICATIONS
The information gathered during the initial roof survey enables us to offer a full design service including system drawings, u-value calculations, and condensation risk analysis, all of which is produced in accordance with current building regulations.
In addition, the roof survey will allow our Technical Services Team to determine whether existing details such as low lying window sills or existing door thresholds will affect any proposed insulation schemes.
For every project we work on our dedicated Technical Services Team produces a bespoke specification. Each specification includes: Project specific detail drawings Tapered insulation plans and roof layouts (where required) U-Value Calculations Wind Load Calculations, Condensation Risk Analysis.
We provide a range of Sika Liquid Plastics standard details, available to access free.
BUILDING INFORMATION MODELLING
Sika have always embraced the concept of BIM. Working with some of the early adopters and industry experts has helped to ensure, as a manufacturer, we are at the forefront of potentially the biggest change seen in the Construction industry for years.
We aim to continue to provide specifiers with the information required, in the correct format and at the appropriate stage of the project.As an innovative & market leading company, Sika invested in BIM, as we believe it is the future for buildings.
The Governments intention to utilise BIM on its projects in during 2016 may not have been realised but it should still be the aim for the future of the Construction Industry. Many specifiers, designers & Main Contractors are fully utilising it for their projects already and have seen the benefits that it can bring.
Sika Roofing created a range of BIM objects for its products. Combined together these provide specifiers and designers BIM Objects for typical "Sika Liquid Plastics systems", covering the majority of our standard flat roofing LAM systems.Our recently updated BIM objects have been developed in conjunction with Majenta Solutions in the following software formats & to cover the most commonly used software currently being used by designers & specifiers.
- Autodesk Revit
- IFC format (Industry Foundation Class) - software neutral format which allows the export of files between different packages. Plugin’s may be required.
This will allow users to confidently include structured, intelligent Sika Liquid Plastics system content into their 3D building model. For more information, search #thinkBIMthinkSika on Twitter.
