Nedap trials BIM in the UK


Nedap, the Netherlands based technological company has started a trial on Building Information Modeling (BIM) with a key group of UK consultants.

The company focuses on developing and supplying solutions in the fields of security (identification of persons, animals and goods) and electronic control units.

NEDAP’s activities are organized in the following Market Groups: Lighting Controls, Identification Systems, Education, Election Systems, Healthcare, Libraries, Livestock Management, Locker Management Systems, Power Supplies, Retail Support, Security Management and Specials.

Ross Bale, Security Specialist at Nedap, says: “The building industry has been under pressure for years. To reduce the risk of errors, it’s crucial for architects, planners, consultants, integrators and contractors to work together more effectively. BIM increases effectiveness, by allowing them to visualize the building in a digital prototype and analyse risks before the building even started.”

“Nedap contributes to this way of working by trialing a level 2 BIM compliant library for access control. It is currently being tested by a key group of UK consultants. We will actively work with their feedback to improve our BIM library. When it works correctly, we will launch it in the rest of Europe in 2016, to support building partners in working together more effectively.” said Ross.
