Dulux Trade paint specifications now available through the National BIM Library

Lucas is a Contract Partner of Dulux and we have our own Dulux colour matching facility and use Dulux coatings on most of our finishing projects. So we are delighted that Dulux Trade has become the first national paint manufacturer to make its coatings available as Building Information Modelling (BIM) objects.

This means that designers and specifiers can seamlessly add their chosen paints and woodcare products directly to their BIM models as BIM objects.

BIM allows architects, designers and contractors to incorporate detailed product information digitally into 3D CAD modelling for building projects. Lucas is already working closely with architects and others to ensure our involvement in major contracts is compatible with BIM modelling.

The National BIM Library contains over 5000 proprietary and pre-configured generic objects covering all major building fabric systems for walls, ceilings, roofs and floors. This list is set to expand making the National BIM Library the primary source of free-to-use, platform neutral UK BIM objects.

Further details of this development by Dulux Trade are available at the address linked below and also directly from the product pages of the Dulux Trade website.
