Weil-McLain has partnered with Autodesk Seek & Anguleris Technologies, a company experienced in and dedicated to solutions in Building Information Modeling (BIM) platform, Autodesk Revit. Anguleris, a member of the Autodesk Seek Content Network, works with building product manufacturers to create holistic BIM strategies.
“Manufacturers who have created quality BIM content for their products have a distinct advantage in the BIM specification process over those who have not. This is the future of product specification,” says Benjamin Glunz, president, Anguleris Technologies.
Weil-McLain has officially rolled out BIM-Revit files for the SlimFit Commercial High Efficiency Condensing boiler. The SlimFit boiler is an extension of Weil-McLain’s Commercial High Efficiency Condensing Boiler line (550MBH & 750 MBH) and is available in three sizes 1,000 MBH, 1,500 MBH and 2,000 MBH. The packaged boiler is on wheels and the compact design requires minimal clearance; it fits through most typical doorways due to its narrow design. It can be further split in half at the jobsite to allow for maneuvering around tight corners, narrow hallways and small elevators. With a combustion efficiency rating above 96 percent, the SlimFit satisfies the same needs that could be provided by a larger system but without the inefficiency. This is a perfect solution for any new commercial and/or institutional setting.
Using the Autodesk Seek web service enables designers, architects, and engineers to discover; preview; and download BIM content, drawings and specifications. For Weil-McLain, it’s a unique way to connect with designers, architects and engineers who specify or recommend heating comfort solutions.
“BIM is becoming more and more prevalent in the commercial construction marketplace. As our friends in the consulting engineer community adopt its use in more and more project designs, we are pleased to assist with a robust offering of Revit models of our commercial boilers,” notes Dave Burggren, LEED Green Associate, director of Commercial Sales, Weil-McLain.
