Eurobrick were first to introduce a comprehensively designed and tested brick slip cladding system to the UK in the early 1990s – providing a fast, flexible and cost effective way to get the real look, feel and durability of brick and stone walling. Recently, Eurobrick has been working with online platforms to provide better quality digital content for people working with their systems, including architects and specifiers.
Eurobrick already provide a number of digital downloads on their website, including technical drawings, product and installation guides and certification for planning. They have now updated their offering through Bimstore and FastrackCAD.
The online information library, Bimstore, offers BIM (Building Information Modelling) information to the construction industry. BIM is a collaborative approach to projects that uses digital technologies to provide greater clarity and detail for the building as whole and make planning more efficient. BIM allows you to embed asset data and a 3D model into plans to help manage and maintain assets throughout the project lifecycle. It is now the required standard for many local authorities and is used by most major construction companies.
Eurobrick’s information on Bimstore allows users to input 3D models of their P-Clad and X-Clad systems, to produce 3D project installation details and from these, generate system quantities required – enabling Eurobrick to provide an accurate estimate for the project. From the 3D models of their building, users can generate photo realistic visuals using any of Eurobrick’s ranges of brick and stone blends, to get a clearer idea of how the final project would look. You can view Eurobrick’s BIM content at www.bimstore.co/manufacturers/eurobrick.
Eurobrick have also updated their information on FastrackCAD, an architectural database that allows registered users to view or download free CAD files. These are simplified 2D versions of Eurobrick’s standard detail drawings, which can be input into working drawings to save time during planning. You can view Eurobrick’s CAD download on www.fastrackcad.com in the brick slips and stone cladding section.
