AluK becomes the first aluminium systems manufacturer to offer a BIM CPD

AluK (GB) Ltd, the leading aluminium window, door and curtain walling systems manufacturer, is pleased to announce that its CPD, BIM: Aluminium Façade Systems – modelling, design, construction, standards and collaboration, has been RIBA accredited. AluK is the first aluminium systems manufacturer to offer a BIM CPD, leading the way in the development of innovative solutions.

By 2016, all Government funded projects will have to implement Building Information Modelling (BIM). The AluK CPD presentation will give further insight into what this will mean for the way we design, construct and manage projects.

Attendees of the CPD presentation will learn about façade system 3-D objects, including information on modelling and system parametrics, design and construction processes, such as BIM tendering and clash detection, as well as standards and regulations.

Russell Yates, Managing Director, AluK (GB) Ltd comments:

“BIM has the potential to dramatically reshape the construction industry, helping to reduce waste and timelines, as well cutting costs. We wanted to produce a CPD presentation that would not only highlight the technology aspects of BIM, but also encourage and promote inter-disciplinary collaboration, greater transparency and communication, which manufacturers, installers and clients can benefit from. It is our goal as a business to be at the forefront of the introduction of BIM and support specifiers not only through the provision of components but also through education.”

AluK aluminium façade systems offer building designers the flexibility to create the structures they desire whilst maintaining the performance and functionality demanded by modern buildings. Combining strong but lightweight aluminium profiles with glazed sections AluK systems can be faceted, curved or angled to create the desired architectural finish with the highest levels of performance.

AluK is dedicated to providing specifiers with the tools required to create outstanding buildings. BIM components are available to download, free, through the AluK website, along with CAD files for every product and full technical and performance specifications. CPD presentations can be arranged by contacting the AluK specifications team at projects(Replace this parenthesis with the @ sign)aluk.co.uk or by calling AluK on 01633 81 04 40.
