BIM is an acronym for Building Information Modelling. BIM describes the means by which everyone can understand a building through the use of a digital model which draws on a range of data assembled collaboratively, before during and after construction. Creating a digital Building Information Model enables those who interact with the building to optimize their actions, resulting in a greater whole life value for the asset.
BIM brings together all of the information about every component of a building, in one place. BIM makes it possible for anyone to access that information for any purpose, e.g. to integrate different aspects of the design more eff ectively. In this way, the risk of mistakes or discrepancies is reduced, and abortive costs minimized.
The future of the construction industry is digital, and BIM is the future of design and long-term facility management; it is government-led across most of Europe and it is enacting change across all industries. Ideal Standard was one of the first industry leaders to include BIM creation in our new product development processes in 2013; we now have more than 4,000 BIM-ready products in our portfolio and over the next year we aim to increase this number by 50% in all markets. All our BIM files are developed from prototype to end product by our product expert engineers and designers so you can be assured that they are 100% accurate.
To reflect our pursuit for connected intelligence that drives innovation in the sanitary industry, we’ve created a new brand identity, which we’re proud to reveal for the first time at ISH. Our new logo is composed of two interlocking rings that represent Ideal Standard’s connectedness with our customers: a symbol of seamless partnership and dynamic water flow, enabled by connected intelligence.
Global megatrends have a significant impact on the use of our most precious resource, water. Demographic change, the need for sustainability, the fight against infection in healthcare environments and the increasing digitalisation of our lives require more holistic solutions. Architects, contractors and plumbers today look for intelligent solutions that meet their needs. Consumers require higher sustainability and an enhanced experience, great design with great functionality. That’s why it is our mission to empower professionals with water Intelligence and why we’re investing heavily in new products and technologies, with a full pipeline of innovation ahead.
Our innovative bathroom solutions in Residential, Commercial and Healthcare combine our unique engineering capabilities, manufacturing expertise, and in-depth customer understanding that we have built in the past 100+ years. Our next wave of innovations addresses global megatrends: 1) our residential solutions provide unprecedented convenience & flexibility, 2) our commercial solutions stand out with cost efficiency and durability, 3) our healthcare solutions look deeper into infection control and provide uncompromising hygiene.
