BIM Lighting Connection & Control

Flex Connectors have worked with The NBS – a leading authority in the BIM industry – to develop a comprehensive Flex7 BIM lighting connection & control library.

What is BIM?

During a project’s design, BIM is used to create a model of the finished facility. The data used is highly detailed, resulting in a 3D virtual representation of the structure that’s accurate enough to be used to prove all aspects of construction and long term performance before so much as a shovel hits the ground.

This BIM model is made up of all the components that will be used in its physical construction. If it’s a regular building, a school or office block for example, this will include all the usual things like bricks, doors & windows, thermal insulation, steelwork, pipework, HVAC & plant, sanitary ware, luminaires, ceilings, furniture, floor coverings and even the paint on the walls. These items are called BIM objects and can be likened to the individual pieces of a 3D jigsaw; of limited use on their own, but collectively a really powerful resource.

What is a BIM Object?

Each BIM object is a multifaceted bundle of data comprising 2D and 3D representations of the product, dimensional information including any additional clearance space that may be required during install or for it to operate correctly, performance data, technical data and the manufacturer’s details. Some of this information is delivered in CAD form, Revit being adopted in the UK as the platform of choice. Supporting documentation utilising PDF and Excel formats is provided as required. This standardisation of product information across the board means that architects, building consultants, main contractors, sub-contractors, end users, and clients, are all working with the same information, laid out in the same way and using the same software. The result, in theory at least, is unrestricted collaboration between disciplines and a decision making process that’s more informed than ever before.
