In 2016 the UK government legislated that all public-funded projects must be undertaken using BIM (Building Information Modelling) software. Meaning that manufacturers, designers and suppliers of catering equipment need to produce BIM-compatible 3D models of their products in order to have them specified.
CESABIM, developed by CESA, in partnership with BIM specialist Specifi, provides easy access to BIM models that can be uploaded into any BIM software format.
