So it is clear that when the BIM process and related technologies are implemented correctly, they bring many benefits to a project. Use of tools such as Openings Studio enables collaboration, breaking down silos and forming a new approach to information development and distribution. This is an exciting time, and we must now take advantage of it to help create a step-change in productivity, transparency and quality within the building industry.

We post news everyday! www.facebook.com/DoorIndustryJournal Case studies Over the past five years, ASSA ABLOY Door Group has worked on numerous projects in the UK and worldwide to utilise its Openings Studio BIM-enabled software to great effect. The time and cost savings seen have been overwhelming, including: • A commercial and residential development based in London consisting of over 1,300 units and more than 7,000 doorsets, saving weeks of time and manpower. • A hospital build in London consisting of over 1,600 door openings, saving the architects two weeks of work as Openings Studio was able to update the door schedule with ironmongery sets in just 10 minutes. • A residential apartment building project in Manchester that saw the update of a 1,400 doorset schedule being undertaken within five minutes as opposed to the traditional workflow of five days. • A primary school build and a secondary school build where the Door Group team worked in close collaboration with the architects at every stage. This saved the architects from having to invest in expensive commercial licences, as ASSA ABLOY provides these at no cost to architect clients as part of the Openings Studio plugin and specification consulting service.
