BIM building planning: GEZE expands its portfolio with waya by BIMsystems

BIM (Building Information Modelling) is one of the most innovative digitalisation topics in the construction sector. GEZE, the specialist for modern door, window and safety technology offers users not just BIM content, but tailored advice and services, too. The international company accesses various tools and platforms to support planning processes. The Leonberg-based manufacturer is expanding its offer with the waya by BIMsystems tool.

BIM enables the digitalisation of construction projects from the outset: important information regarding the planning, design and infrastructure can thus be depicted in what is referred to as the digital twin. One of the criteria for implementation in practice is BIM-compliant data as a source of information. GEZE is a pioneer here in the field of door, window and safety solutions. To further simplify and accelerate the digital processes for planners and architects, GEZE now offers its revolving, swing and sliding door systems as BIM content via the waya by BIMsystems tool.

The BIM elements can be accessed online or via a plugin that can be used with Revit or ArchiCAD. Before, during or after a consultation via the waya platform, a BIM object is configured and is immediately available for use in the CAD software. The result: Loss-free networking in the BIM planning, digitalised project and product data and addressee-oriented information throughout the planning process in one CAD system. 

Configurable BIM door objects from GEZE

GEZE offers planners and architects configurable BIM door objects with all necessary components, as well as attributes that have not yet been specified. The area of door planning is particularly complex: during the planning and implementation, approximately 150 pieces of information are needed for the correct planning of a door. The difficulty in the planning process often lies in not populating projects with too much information in an early phase - this can cause problems in a later planning phase or when changes are made. The adjustable GEZE BIM objects allows all the properties of the door to be determined successively by the architect or planner.
