BIM – building information modeling

BIM (building information modeling) components 
 

Timber engineering through BIM

 

Effective co-ordination between design disciplines and communication of the design to the field is a constant challenge. Building Information Modelling (BIM) is driving a revolution in the construction industry.

Digital engineering (BIM) goes beyond the planning and design phase of the project, extending throughout the building life cycle, supporting processes including cost management, construction management, project management and facility operation.

Organised into BIM families, our key engineered wood product systems and solutions are all available and can be downloaded here.

Finnframe installation app

Download the app for free

 

Accessible from any smart phone or tablet (Windows, Android or iOS based), the app provides static drawings of design details and animated sequences demonstrating the correct installation procedure.

The Finnframe Installation application works in conjunction with the Finnframe specification provided by Metsä Wood for our housebuilder customers. Detailed design drawings will identify specific details by code - eg M2a - and the contractor will simply cross reference the code with the app on their phone to watch the brief annotated video.

This information is currently provided in the form of technical drawings on the reverse of detailed site plans. This guidance may not be readily to hand for all contractors, so the app provides immediate on-the-spot information.

Following extensive research with customer and construction site staff, the app has been developed in order to eliminate errors in the installation process. Eliminating the need to visit sites that are held up due to incorrect installation or handling of a product was cited as a real concern by the customers that Metsä Wood engaged with during the development process.

​​ This is not an app for 'app's sake'. We have listened to our customers who all recognise that remedial action is expensive and time-consuming, so any tool that can help get the job done right first time, every time, will ensure the build process is more efficient and will help both contractor and client. Our aim is that downloading the app becomes standard site practice and will be included in tool box talks on all sites using the Finnframe system.
