BIM Data for PremiumLine 850

Gelsenkirchen, May 2016 – PremiumLine 850 BIM data in compliance with the latest standards is now available to all registered users at According to Alexander Dobrindt, the German Federal Minister of Transport and Digital Infrastructure, building and planning with BIM will be obligatory for infrastructure projects in Germany as of 2020. So BIM is coming – whether we want it or not!

BIM (Building Information Modelling) involves the creation of a synchronised database to combine all the procedures and partial aspects of a construction project to which all those involved in planning (planners, architects, builder-owners, engineers, etc.) will have access. Information will all be transparently networked. This means that the effects of a change to all the subsections of a construction project will be displayed in real time. "Naturally, this also concerns the planning of kitchens. For example, if a 300-litre rectangular boiling pan is replaced with a 500-litre rectangular boiling pan, all the relevant data changes, such as changes to energy consumption, dimensions, minimum clearances, etc., will be fed into the project direct and made available to all those involved," says Marc-Oliver Schneider. The advantage: construction projects are implemented faster, more economically and more sustainably. 

Marc-Oliver Schneider believes that "because the use of BIM is obligatory in the UK, the Netherlands, Denmark, Finland and Norway, it will also apply in Germany in future. Concepts are already there," he says. "Kitchens are always a central module of a construction project, because they are where a lot of energy is needed. So it is crucial for us as a manufacturer of food service equipment to be leading the way when it comes to BIM."
