CIBSE’s BIM Steering Group has developed a Building Information Modelling (BIM) initiative, Product Data Templates (PDTs), designed to fast-track the flow of general product information into BIM models.
The first PDTs are now being made available for public consultation and the Institution is seeking feedback from the building services sector– particularly trade associations and the manufacturers of relevant products.
8 PDTs are now available online for comment/feedback, with over 150 more being developed:
- Air Diffuser
- Heat Detector
- Isolation Valve
- Smoke Detectors
CIBSE are interested in all feedback and comment, particularly on whether the PDT adequately describes the product type, how easy it is to complete the fields and whether the complete PDT is sufficient.
If you want to assist with the PDTs which are still in development, then further information can be found here.
