Dec. 29, 2009: Lochinvar Boiler and Water Heater Drawings Now Available for BIM

LEBANON, Tenn. - Lochinvar® announced that it has developed a library of drawings of its commercial and residential products that are fully configured for placement in Autodesk® Revit® Architecture 2010 for building information modeling (BIM). Architects, designers, and contractors using the 2010 edition of Revit software, which allows them to design with parametric modeling and drafting elements, can now download the pre-programmed, 3D Lochinvar equipment models for free at www.lochinvar.com.

The library currently includes 26 drawings of key Lochinvar models, such as the ARMOR® commercial water heater, KNIGHT XL® commercial boiler, SHIELD® commercial water heater, and SYNC® condensing boiler, as well as the floor-standing KNIGHT® residential heating boiler. Additional models are currently in development and will be available for download in the near future.

“After hearing from many of our customers who use Revit on a regular basis, we developed this library in response to their requests for Lochinvar components designed for use with the software,” stated Jeff Vallett, executive vice president at Lochinvar. “Now, they can complete their building designs more efficiently and effectively by having quick, easy, and free access to pre-programmed drawings of our high-efficiency equipment.”

To download the Lochinvar models, visit the “What’s Hot” section on the home page at www.lochinvar.com. They can also be located under the Products tab, by selecting “Product Documentation” and then clicking on the link under “Revit Product Drawings.”

Lochinvar Corp. is a leading manufacturer of high-efficiency water heaters, boilers, pool heaters, and storage tanks. For more information, visit www.lochinvar.com.
