BUFFALO GROVE, Ill. - Siemens Industry Inc. made Building Information Modeling (BIM) available on the company’s most commonly used HVAC products. According to the company, the goal is to make its field components more easily available to architects and engineers during the design phase. BIM makes construction documents interoperable, so product information is easily accessible and design plans are easily amendable.

In collaboration with Avatech Solutions Inc., a professional services company delivering design and engineering technologies, Siemens Building Technologies Division created an initial group of models from its existing product drawings. These files are now available for download on Autodesk® Seek,, an online source for product specifications and design files, and on the Siemens Control Products and Systems website,

“Our customers are accustomed to products that install quickly and perform reliably, right out of the box. Supplying models that fit seamlessly into building projects during the design and construction phase is our main focus. Establishing our library and presence on Autodesk Seek reaffirms our commitment of making our customers’ jobs easier - from design and construction through ongoing operation, maintenance, and upgrades,” said Joe Studzinski, senior director of product development.
