Reichle & De-Massari (R&M) Partners with IGS and BIMcontent.com
R&M partners with IGS to provide high-quality Revit content via the BIMcontent.com platform, streamlining and maximising access to Architects and Building Designers.
Responding to industry trends and customer demand, R&M engaged IGS to develop a high-quality Revit content library, and an effective BIM content hosting and distribution strategy. The BIM content library of Data Cabinets, Data Chassis, Outlets and Adapters is available via BIMcontent.com and the R&M website.
About Reichle & De-Massari (R&M)
As a market leader with close ties to industry-leading designers and Engineers, R&M recognised the growing trend of Building Information Modelling (BIM) workflows being used in project design and the increasing demand from specifiers for project-ready, data-rich BIM content from product suppliers. R&M chose IGS Group as their BIM content partner following recommendations from several specifier clients and IGS’ reputation as a market leader.
With the conception of BIMcontent.com by IGS, R&M joined as a foundation partner to streamline access of its Revit library to the growing community of specifiers using the platform, and to utilise the website integration feature which ensures cross-platform consistency and optimal user experience when accessing the Revit content from the R&M website and BIMcontent.com.
About the R&M Library
Recognising the growing demand from project designers for high-quality BIM content, the R&M library facilitates the efficient and effective creation of project documentation, design development, and visualisation used in client engagement processes.
R&M Revit families have been created to a consistent, high standard with the objective of finding a balance between the complexity of use, functionality, documentation output, file size and performance in a Revit project environment. The modular nature of networking equipment has been considered in order to provide highly customisable solutions to designers depending on the required Level of Detail. The advanced families are modular and highly parametric for optimal design and documentation flexibility. Designers can customise individual Data Cassettes and Splice Cartridges housed in each Server/Data Chassis from their project. Also included in the library is an All-In-One Revit Project File (.RVT) with all families and types laid out as a ‘Virtual Showroom’. This valuable resource is especially helpful for efficient library access, browsing, QA and content utilisation workflows. Available to download in Autocad and Revit (2018 and all subsequent versions).
With BIMcontent.com having such a fast-growing user base, it presents a great opportunity for R&M to make their BIM content available via the platform and maximise industry adoption.
Having the library syndicated across both the BIMcontent.com platform and R&M’s website means any changes made to the library are immediately available to specifiers and consistent across both sites, which provides great operational benefits to R&M and a great service to R&M’s specifier customers.
To ensure designers can access the Revit and Autocad library using workflows optimised for browsing and downloading BIM content, R&M is utilising IGS group‘s BIM Content hosting platform and project design resource, BIMcontent.com. In implementing the website integration feature, R&M has ensured designers are able to experience the same optimised search, preview and download workflows on both the R&M website and BIMcontent.com. This includes the ability to preview the 3D Revit geometry directly in the web browser, view parameter data, download specific versions of content, and choose the type of content download.
