We initially plan to start with 10 licenses. The latest version of BFT is easier to use (the threshold for those who have just started making fire safety drawings in Revit is lower) compared to previous versions of Bimfire Tools. In the long run, we envisage that we may need additional licenses if time consumption and output match the current solution for producing fire safety drawings in Revit.
A single source of information
While the ” golden thread of information” is yet to become standard practice, the term has become the conventional term within the construction industry to describe accurate and up-to-date record of building data.
The key to this single source of truth is “Building information modelling”, or BIM. BIM is the the process of designing, construction, and operation of a building using a digital workflow of smart objects. Instead of using drawings, made by pen on paper or computer-generated, the design is made up by smart objects linked together. The smart objects in BIM all carry real time-data which makes the model automatically updated when changes are made. This way of working reduces errors and allows for a traceable audit trail. Today the use of BIM is widespread within design and construction and with regulations underway we can expect the practice to become more common also in operation and maintenence.
DIGITAL FIRE DATA IN THE GOLDEN THREAD
Digital information will be a prerequisite for the construction process to achieve a golden thread. For you who work with fire safety the first step will be to start designing in BIM. Therefor we have developed Bimfire Tools, a Revit application that allows for modular design with smart, real time-data.
