BIM Planr Step Seat Model
Once a furniture layout has been drawn in our native CAD package Vectorworks, we are able to present the information in a series of ways:

BIM Ready


CFG fully support the Government’s Building Information Modelling (BIM) mandate requiring all central government funded projects to achieve Level 2 BIM
by 2016. Because of this, we have taken the proactive step of incorporating the COBie data format into our entire CAD library of over 1,000 educational
furniture items.

All of these school furniture items are available in IFC format as we recognise the need for an Open BIM approach to the design, realisation and operation of
future buildings.

Interactive BIM Model


The furniture layout model can be exported as an open source IFC file which can then be imported into any BIM capable CAD software package, or simply
opened in a BIM viewer where each furniture item's data can be viewed. This model can then be passed on to the client to assist with future facilities
management of the place of education.

Graphical BIM


We can save each room's layout as a PDF with both a 2D plan view and 3D view of the furniture contained within it. On the PDF we are able to add a
spreadsheet showing the data of the drawn items which can also be exported to an Excel (Windows) or Numbers (Mac) file for viewing seperately to the PDF
drawing.

Supporting Documents


Having the 3D CAD model linked to our external furniture database (contained within Filemaker Pro), we are able to produce room by room cost schedules
for the complete project as well as a project specific product catalogue which contains images, information and colour options for each specified item.
