Thomas has proven expertise in leveraging your existing CAD drawings or model files to generate the highest-quality BIM files containing all the necessary geometry, metadata and performance characteristics needed by engineers.


Top Architects, MEP Engineers, Fabricators and Construction professionals utilize BIM to do their jobs. They recognize the cost saving and efficiency benefits and, as a result, large owners and government departments are looking to leverage BIM in their projects. 

Building product manufacturers must become BIM ready, capable of providing customers throughout the design-to-construction process with the different BIM model formats (Revit, ArchiCAD, CADmep), and the multiple BIM data standards (COBIE, IFC, ETIM), required to participate and even bid on projects.

Quality product data in the right format is what your targeted audiences need to discover, select and commit your products to their projects. BIM data provides early entry into the specifying process, giving your sales team better visibility to opportunities much earlier than traditional project data services and submittal activity.

As a younger generation moves into leadership positions within design and construction, demand for easy-to-access digitized product information will only increase. Building product manufacturers who invest in changing their sales and marketing process and respond to the needs of an industry set on BIM will gain the competitive advantage. Become THE company that’s easy to do business with in BIM.

Which industries use BIM?

BIM adoption is growing in Design, Fabrication, Construction, and even Facilities Management, bringing new demands on building product manufacturers. (The ability to meet these needs with the best data available can generate leads and project visibility very early in the BIM workflow.)

What are the benefits of being BIM-ready?

The ability to meet these needs with the best data available gives your products a greater likelihood of being locked-in to the spec during the design phase. By enabling end users to easily download the right BIM formats for their project, you’re able to get visibility to projects much earlier than traditional sources and give your sales team actionable market data.
