The substantial efficiencies and added value that developers and architects will gain by working with a BIM-ready window, door and façade contractor, will be revealed by CMS Window Systems at this year’s Buildings & Energy Efficiency Expo.
Already established as one of the UK’s leading window, door and curtain walling fabricators and installers, CMS Window Systems recently expanded its portfolio of building envelope solutions with the addition of external wall insulation (EWI) and cladding systems installation.
Earlier this year, CMS became one of the first companies of its kind to invest in the technology, personnel and skills required to be BIM-ready. In doing so, it is ensuring that building projects benefit from consistent BIM expertise throughout the numerous work stages – reducing the risk of costly errors or contractor delays.
The CMS team is utilising its presence at the B&EE Expo to give architects, developers and main contractors the opportunity to learn why it is so important that the building envelope contractor is BIM-ready, as well as product manufacturers.
In addition to BIM, CMS will also be highlighting how its range of PVCu, aluminium and timber aluminium composite windows and doors provides highly effective solutions for delivering residential properties which are extremely energy efficient, and future-proofed from the harmful effects of fuel poverty.
Stephen Anderson, Director of the Aluminium Division at CMS said: “With BIM adoption levels still well below expectations at this point in the BIM timetable, the B&EE Expo is the ideal platform to help us highlight how BIM skills and technology are in place right along the supply chain – providing you know where to look.
“By being BIM-ready, we are providing the vital link between designer and product manufacturer by talking the same language and, more importantly, using our experience in numerous other building envelope projects to advise on where further design and process efficiencies can be achieved.”
CMS operates from a 15-acre modern manufacturing and recycling facility near Glasgow, with additional facilities in Fife, producing more than 100,000 window units and thousands of square metres of curtain walling every year. The firm provides a 360-degree building envelope solution from design through manufacture, installation and aftercare, an approach that has seen it work on some of the largest housing investment programmes and commercial building projects throughout the UK since its formation in 2006.
