ASSA ABLOY rolls out powerful BIM-capable tools for planning doors and fittings

New tools will facilitate the rationalization of processes and cut costs during the entire project life cycle.

ASSA ABLOY, the world's leading provider of door solutions, will launch a powerful 3D- and BIM-capable tool at Swissbau from 14 to 18 January 2020 in Switzerland. This tool will simplify defining and planning doors and fittings and at the same time facilitate adhering to times and a budget.

  • ASSA ABLOY OPENINGS STUDIO™ is an intelligent BIM-capable planning tool that will help users develop complete and customised door solutions.
  • ASSA ABLOY BIM DOOR SOLUTIONS offers a high-quality selection of BIM-capable door installation situations for a wide variety of problems.

OPENINGS STUDIO and BIM DOOR SOLUTIONS will increase the added value for construction projects and applications of all sizes. At the touch of a button, stakeholders such as architects, technical planners, contractors, fitters and building managers will benefit from the following functions:

  • Product information and performance data for adherence to budgets, building codes, project requirements and environmental assessment procedures
  • Informative 3D views of door solutions and the associated hardware that will enable creating and integrating designs with unique distinguishing features
  • Data in various formats for fast integration into native BIM environments and simplified collaboration with other stakeholders
  • Regular updates for the integration of new products and technologies in order to ensure state-of-the-art functionality and design

Both tools offer plug-and-play BIM-capable solutions for doors and fittings – whether you choose from the prepared BIM DOOR SOLUTIONS or obtain an innovative, customised solution through OPENINGS STUDIO. The tools are simple and convenient and will improve design and presentation, simplify the sharing of knowledge and facilitate compliance with the highest environmental standards.

OPENINGS STUDIO and BIM DOOR SOLUTIONS were developed to expedite tenders and create added value in every phase – from design to construction and beyond. This BIM functionality opens the way to better visualisation, greater choice, leaner decision-making, efficient design and building processes and above all to an improved collaboration.

"By providing our partners with more time to concentrate on what they can do best, we're helping them to switch from a 2D environment to a 3D world with new possibilities," says Gregor Süssli, head of Property Business.
