Geberit is one of the first HVAC suppliers in the Nordics to produce BIM objects
for Revit. Almost all of their bathroom products and HVAC systems are included
in their range of objects.

Geberit is the European market leader of installation systems, cisterns,
flushing systems, sewer and water systems and provides high-tech solutions for
the HVAC industry. Launching this extensive range of products as BIM objects is
a key part of their goal to simplify the planning process for Geberit customers.

Today we release 80 percent of our products as BIM objects which, for
architects, plumbing consultants and structural engineers, will reduce their
work when they design our products into their projects, says Fredrik Färjh, CEO
of Geberit Sweden.

As a first step Geberit is providing BIM objects to Sweden and the Nordics but
with the Revit files in English they can be easily modified for additional
markets in the future. Geberits BIM objects are available for immediate download
from the BIMobject® Portal: http://bimobject.com/Product/m/geberit

- With BIM technology it is simple to see different types of collisions and
solve the problems in the computer instead of on the construction site.
Construction mistakes are costly and digital technology is of course interesting
for our customers, says Fredrik Färjh, CEO of Geberit AB.

- By representing an internationally recognized brand such as Geberit we are
expanding our range of BIM objects within HVAC. With its BIM initiative Geberit
is taking a leadership position to ultimately create a global solution and
become a natural part of the BIM process. Publishing their BIM objects on the
BIMobject® Portal gives Geberit a substantial advantage against their
competitors, says Alexander Steen, Nordic Business Manager of BIMobject AB.

By making Geberit products available as BIM objects the planning and design
process becomes much easier for architects, HVAC installers and engineers as
everyone is given access to the same information and planning tools. When
replacing components you can get an exact bill of materias with a simple click.
If you then change the product or changing a water or sewer pipe, you can
clearly see how this affects other parts of the construction process, and these
items can serve as a basis for collision checks at a later stage. The objects
contain replaceable flush buttons, adjustable mounting heights, materials and
MEP connections.
