Tata Steel makes life easier for specifiers with web based BIM tool

Tata Steel has launched a BIM and data tool for all of its European construction brand products.

The DNA Profiler tool will help contractors, architects and engineers by allowing users to retrieve the exact level of BIM data they require at whatever stage they are in the construction process.

The web-based tool will host over 6,100 of the company’s European construction brand products – including Celsius, ComFlor, Kalzip and Catnic products – in all relevant BIM software formats.

There is also the option to download data sets, 3D objects or both combined, for continued parametric functionality.

It also allows users to find a product by filtering on product data and performance characteristics.

Architects and contractors can therefore access the data they need in the correct format and tailor it specifically to meet Employer Information Requirements (EIR).

Each of the DNA Profiler’s data-rich BIM objects features contact details, mechanical properties, performance characteristics, maintenance requirements and guarantee periods.

In the future it will be expanded to include information on lead times and pricing and the tool is free for everyone to use.

Alex Small, Tata Steel BIM and Digital Platforms Manager said: “Enhancing and supporting the adoption of BIM technology is vital for UK construction.

“As we know, BIM offers tangible supply chain benefits. It saves essential time and costs, highlights any technical issues within the design stage and beyond through to end user asset management, yet for many, heavy investment cost is prohibitive.

“If BIM is to be properly adopted, the industry needs to support small and medium-sized enterprises and our industry-leading DNA Profiler not only provides the design community with the tools it needs but acts as a standard setter for product manufacturers going forward.

“This powerful resource will aid the flow of information throughout the construction process, making sure that the right level of quality, safety and compliance standards are met.

“Critically, as it draws directly from Tata Steel’s database, users can be assured that the data they are accessing is up to date.”
