Actis Hybrid range, currently available on the BIM Object portal, will soon be in the National Building Specification BIM library too.
With 93% of the world’s architects now using the BIM Object Cloud, the presence of the CE marked Actis Hybrid range in the virtual library and its imminent arrival on the NBS BIM hub, should be invaluable to architects and specifiers searching for excellent thermal performance and keen to address thermal bridging.
The service will also, of course, be invaluable to developers, contractors, local authorities, housing associations and energy assessors.
BIM Objects of every thickness of insulation material Hybris, along with vapour control layer H Control Hybrid and breather membrane Boost ‘R Hybrid, all of which have LABC and LABSS registered details and are NHBC accepted when used in accordance with the certification, have been developed for the Revit software platform.
The NBS National BIM Library links directly to NBS specification software and to the NBS BIM Toolkit.
As well as being quicker, more accurate and efficient than its predecessor, CAD, Building Information Modelling, the smartphone of architectural drawing methods, is transforming building design.
In addition to enabling 3D ‘real life’ representations of the finished project and its intervening stages, the integrated system enables specifiers to anticipate errors, design issues and clashes long before they would have occurred using older Computer Aided Design technology.
