Cubicle Centre ready for BIM BIM isn’t on its way — it’s already here.

The Government Construction Strategy is now a year old and we acknowledge the stringent demands that this places on the industry. Thanks to recent investment in excess of £10K, Cubicle Centre Ltd is BIM capable and ready to go!

What is BIM?

Building Information Modelling (BIM) is the process of generating and managing building data during its lifecycle. BIM involves representing a design as objects that carry their geometry, relations and attributes. For more information regarding BIM please visit:

www.washroomcubicles.co.uk

Why BIM?

In June 2011 the UK Government published its Construction Strategy detailing: Government will require fully collaborative 3D BIM (with all projects and asset information, documentation and data being electronic) as a minimum by 2016. This mandate looks to address the need for efficiency and industry reform and realise a ‘cost reduction of 20% during the term of the current parliament’.

BIM Components

Cubicle Centre now boast a complete library of BIM components available for download. BIM content includes toilet cubicles, wall panel systems and vanity units created for Cubicle Centre Ltd by Bimstore.co.uk. Their Autodesk Certified professionals have checked the Cubicle Centre BIM content and all components are ready for use in real project environments. Cubicle Centre BIM components are data-rich, highlight unique features such as FSC® certification, and contain parametric features that help specifiers design within the limits of the system. The result is a quicker specification process combined with correct product details throughout the whole project cycle. For more information regarding BIM please contact us:

Location - Garforth Golf Club Cubicle System - Cotswold With their 100 year anniversary approaching, Garforth Golf Club complete a refurbishment of their facilities with the Cubicle Centre Ltd as their chosen washroom manufacturer. Established in 1912 by a group of local enthusiasts, the club and course has benefitted from significant investment in the past few years securing it’s place as one of the top golf clubs in the North of England. Manufactured from waterproof and vandal resistant Compact Grade Laminate, Cotswold cubicles were chosen for the shower and toilet areas. Due to its style and durability it is a perfect solution for high volume usage. Light Grey Speck was used for the dividing partitions, complemented by wood grain Wenge door panels both chosen from the ABET Laminati range. This ensured the washrooms were presented in a modern and elegant style, which reflects the professional standards of the club. Cubicle Centre Ltd manufactured and supplied made to measure panels and partitions for the toilet and shower cubicles, made to measure vanity units for the basins, and custom made light pelmets.
