STI Firestop Expands Architectural Design BIM Resources with BIMsmith Partnership
Specified Technologies Inc., an industry leader in developing innovative firestopping systems that help stop the spread of fire, smoke, and hot gases for over 30 years, has partnered with BIMsmith, the leading product research platform for building professionals, to expand its robust offering of Building Information Modeling (BIM) tools to the architecture and engineering community.
The partnership places BIM content for STI Firestop products strategically in front of building design professionals via BIMsmith Market, the leading product research tool for architects and other building professionals around the world. By providing quality, easily accessible BIM content through BIMsmith and the STI website, STI is making it easy and simple for building professionals to incorporate firestop into their complex building designs.
STI is not new to BIM. In 2016, it released its own proprietary FCM (Firestop Clash Management) plugin for Autodesk Revit, which uses clash detection to find locations where penetrants meet fire-rated barriers and automatically selects the appropriate firestop systems.
The BIMsmith partnership aims to further add to the STI portfolio of powerful BIM tools for fire protection, solidifying STI Firestop’s role as an indispensable partner providing firestop solutions to building design professionals.
