Cemex utilising Building Information Modelling software

Published by
World Cement,

BIM (Building Information Modelling) is the 21st century version of paper plans for construction. And Cemex is invested with a full suite of information including details on products such as Advanced, MicroTech, Promptis, Evolution, Readyblock and more.

The BIM contains everything that old-style plans would, but in three dimensions and with data about the materials and components in a structure from shape, strength and weight to carbon footprint, maintenance requirements and many other characteristics. It holds all the information needed by architects, engineers, specifiers and designers.

The information is hosted on the NBS National BIM Library website and all Central Government building procurement contracts must use BIM from April 2016.
