CertainTeed Gypsum recently announced the introduction of building information modeling (BIM) objects for building, design, and construction professionals' use in project design, specification, and scheduling.
The objects are available through Reed Construction Data's SmartBIM Library and include details and systems incorporating the following: GlasRoc Sheathing and Tile Backer; ProRoc Gypsum Board; and ProRoc Moisture and Mold Resistant Gypsum Board with M2Tech. Providing Autodesk Revit users with access to manufacturer-specific systems in context makes it easier for design professionals to streamline project specification and workflow.
"By leveraging CertainTeed Gypsum's BIM offerings, building and design pros can easily visualize projects, improve design quality, reduce change orders, and improve project scheduling," said Doug Gehring, CertainTeed's director of marketing technical services.
CertainTeed Gypsum manufactures and markets a broad range of gypsum and finishing products for interior and exterior needs across the U.S. and Canada. This, in combination with affiliate CertainTeed Corp.'s building products, provides architects, contractors, builders, and dealers with one partner to provide service and support for commercial and residential building projects.
