Advanced Support for 3D Modelling with Launch of BIM Objects


Advanced have worked with NBS to produce a comprehensive range of certified BIM objects for their fire panels, now listed on the NBS National BIM Library. Available to download for free from the library, the new data-rich BIM objects allow the very latest in fire systems technology from Advanced to be easily incorporated into a 3D building model by specifiers, architects and contractors using BIM building practices. Included in Advanced’s range of BIM objects is the flagship MxPro 5 range, approved to EN54-2,4 &13 and available in one-to-eight-loop variants as standard, with further custom-build options available. Holly Burrows, Account Manager at NBS, said: “It’s been a pleasure to work with Advanced on our NBS National BIM Library. Choosing NBS to author their BIM objects means that they will be uniquely integrated within our digital BIM ecosystem that is used by construction industry professionals of all disciplines around the world. It’s great to see the response they’ve received from our customers and I very much look forward to continuing to support Advanced on their BIM Journey”.

01827 255600 www.strongtie.co.uk Expanded offering on certified thermal details


Sika Sarnafil has expanded its BRE Certified Thermal Details to ensure specifiers have the most comprehensive details available when choosing a roofing system. With the continuing emphasis on sustainable buildings and an increasing need for data that can prove a building’s green credentials, Sarnafil has updated its suite of new build details, including all deck types and systems. All of the Sarnafil standard details, including those that are certified by BRE, are available for free via its online download centre. All of the Sarnafil details comply with the most up-to-date terminology and relevant regulations. They are the quick and efficient way of tackling thermal calculations and have the added credibility of certified thermal values verified by the independence of BRE – the third-party organisation responsible for other well-known sustainability certification schemes such as BREEAM. Martin Bidewell, Head of Technical and Product Management for Sika Roofing commented: “Anything that is going to help address the potential heat loss of a building and make calculations simpler is going to find an audience. By updating and increasing the details available this service is now even stronger.”


01707 358500 gbr.sarnafil.sika.com Re-shaping the house-building industry


Recent developments in the housebuilding industry look set to stimulate the market for timber frame construction, says Norbord Marketing Manager David Connacher. The growth of timber frame is changing practices within housebuilding as the construction industry embraces the idea of off-site


manufacture. This slow and cautious approach is due mainly to the fact that offsite manufacture means a huge reduction in the site-based activities. This means that, once the building’s foundations are installed, erection of the main structure follows very quickly. Timber- framed homes can therefore be brought to market at a faster rate.

When specifying lintels for its new, large-scale housing development, Property Management Company AKI Ltd looked to Catnic’s Thermally Broken Lintel (TBL), as its design achieves superior thermal performance, whilst offering


the same stable installation benefits of a traditional cavity wall lintel. The specifically designed flat top of Catnic’s Thermally Broken Lintel provides a simple, consistent junction with the cavity wall insulation. This removes the reliance on site workmanship, reducing the risk of a ‘performance gap’. The large scale development project also benefitted from Catnic Lintel Advance Scheduling System (CLASS).
