Market-leading subfloor preparation products and flooring adhesives manufactured by F. Ball and Co. Ltd. are now available as Building Information Modelling (BIM) objects to download for free from RIBA’s NBS National BIM Library.
RIBA members can download the objects, in Revit compatible and IFC formats, in order to specify F. Ball products when designing structures using BIM software. The wide range of products listed features some of the most popular high-performance levelling compounds and flooring adhesives for installing floorcoverings. These include F. Ball’s Stopgap Fast-Track 30 rapid-drying levelling compound and Styccobond F46 pressure sensitive acrylic adhesive. Also listed are waterproof surface membranes, which are often required for new-builds because of high levels of construction moisture.
F. Ball’s marketing manager, Richard Harris, said: “We are proud that F. Ball is one of the first manufacturers of subfloor preparation products to be included within the NBS BIM Library. We have made a significant investment so that architecture, engineering and construction professionals can now download BIM compatible data to incorporate our products into their models. This makes it easy to specify exactly which products they want flooring contractors to use for optimum results.”
