Williams is proud to announce that it is the first refrigeration manufacturer to offer fully BIM-compliant models to the industry, well ahead of the 2016 deadline for all Government procured buildings to be BIM compliant.
Along with its sister company Falcon Foodservice Equipment, it is among the first handful of manufacturers to have their BIM models available through CESABIM (www.cesabim.com), the online catering industry library for BIM models launched on July 2nd 2014. CESABIM is a non-commercial library of BIM models and data for the catering equipment industry.
Models are prepared in IFC (Industry Foundation Class) format, which can be used on all proprietary software systems, including Autoscheme, ArchiCAD and Revit.
There are over 150 BIM programs that support IFC files and CESABIM is free to use for designers and specifiers. It is expected to help reduce construction costs and allow effective planning and control.
