    DINUY helps create sustainable buildings with a new BIM library on MEPcontent.com

    DINUY launches its new BIM library on MEPcontent.com to contribute to the design of construction and architecture projects. Amaia Asurmendi, Head of Marketing, highlights that “this is an important step taken by DINUY in its strategy of digitization and collaboration with MEP professionals, who increasingly rely on BIM and digital BIM catalogues to create their (green) buildings".

    The DINUY BIM library contains more than 50 products and is available for construction companies, architecture studios, engineering firms and professionals in the construction process. “It includes our newest product line* of detectors available in the colours black, silver and white, to help find the most appropriate design in interior design projects” says Amaia Asurmendi.

    Standardised BIM content



    BIM (Building Information Modelling) is a real-time collaborative work system, whose main objective is the creation and management of a construction project. Its objective is to centralise all the project information in a digital information model created by all its agents and to speed up the installation design process digitally. The DINUY BIM library guarantees consistent and standardised content which can be used for various purposes, such as geometry for spacing calculations, power or safety ratings, declaration of conformity with norms etc.

    The benefits of BIM go far beyond the planning and design phases, encompassing the entire life cycle of the building. Thanks to the data contained in the BIM files, the registration of each component is much more efficient, improving accessibility, responsibility and project management, having control of all phases of the project.

    Caleffi Hydronic Solutions guides customers to the right technical choices with MEPcontent

    About Caleffi: quality, completeness, and compliance to corporate and international standards


    In 2021, on the 60th anniversary of its 1961 founding, Caleffi marked a new milestone in its growth from a small supplier in the taps, fittings and valves industry to a benchmark manufacturer of components for hydraulic heating and domestic water systems.

    Caleffi’s 10 production plants and 20 sales offices employ 1,300 people in more than 90 countries. The company’s Italian base of operations is strategic; it ensures compliance with quality standards imposed not only by international regulations, but also by Caleffi’s corporate expectations.
    As at its founding, Caleffi’s success has come by guiding customers to the right technical choices through the full design and building process, and by anticipating customer needs before they arise.

    That focus on full-cycle customer support is what led Caleffi to Trimble and MEPcontent.

    Engineering firms require high-quality BIM models and skilled partners


    Walter Bertona is the Caleffi BIM project coordinator also responsible for digital marketing and communication.
    “We have noticed in the last few years that engineering firms not only require high-quality BIM models, but they are also searching for a partner skilled in the full scope of design and building,” Bertona said. “Trimble expertise—specifically, the expertise of the MEPcontent team—enables us to optimally support Caleffi customers.”

    MEPcontent provides an unmatched library of manufacturer-specific Revit families, AutoCAD blocks, and IFC files ready for MEP engineers to download and use in their projects.

    MEP engineers and contractors use MEPcontent to deliver technically accurate models and drawings that include manufacturer-specific content. Doing so ensures the model contains uniform and accurate information for fabrication and documentation.


    Understanding the needs of our MEP engineers


    In 2014, Caleffi recognized the importance of understanding the needs of MEP engineers using building information modeling. Their search for an expert partner led them to Trimble and MEPcontent.

    “MEPcontent was the perfect partner,” Bertona said. “More than creating and publishing our first BIM library, the MEP experts at Trimble showed how to select and to manage the parameters that matter to our customers.”

    Caleffi aspires to be an international reference in approved certifications. To meet that goal, the company needs to offer MEP engineers the highest possible quality of BIM content.

    “The EMCS—the Trimble Extended MEPcontent Standard—is the high standard we want to offer our customers,” Bertona said. “All Caleffi BIM files comply with the EMCS standard.”
    Quality is not the end of the story for the Caleffi-Trimble collaboration. Even better is the knowledge Caleffi gains of what its customers need. “Since our collaboration in 2014, we gradually expanded our library based on data received from the analytics from the MEPcontent construction analytics dashboard,” Bertona said. “MEPcontent provides us with a direct insight into the BIM demand of our customers.”

    Access to international markets


    MEPcontent.com began as an online BIM library for MEP contractors and engineers in Europe. Trimble acquired the site in 2018 as part of its acquisition of Stabiplan, a specialist in mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) software and content.

    Bertona said Caleffi is making the most of Trimble’s international status. “Trimble’s acquisition of MEPcontent allows us to operate even more on international markets, the United States market being one example,” Bertona said.

    “Caleffi has a branch in Milwaukee, which is very active with the production and promotion of U.S.-exclusive BIM objects via MEPcontent.com, localized to the needs of MEP engineers in the U.S.A.”

    Caleffi’s example shows the value of Trimble’s goal of supporting customers around the world in digitizing their MEP estimating, project management, modeling, detailing, layout and construction.

    “Having a global partner who understands the needs of MEP designers gives our organization the ability to offer high-quality solutions wherever we do business,” Bertona said. “Combining this aspect with the recognized quality of our products allows us to gain the trust of designers all over the world.”

    Meeting present and future needs


    Bertona isn’t satisfied with solving today’s challenges alone, because he knows BIM standards are evolving worldwide.

    “We help our stakeholders when we keep up to date with the evolution of BIM standards,” Bertona said.

    Among future trends to watch, Bertona cites sustainability as foremost among them. Caleffi pursues sustainability through its own corporate initiatives and participation in Eubac, the European Building Automation and Controls Association.

    “Whether we’re meeting the needs of an individual customer or building a world where buildings are smart, efficient and sustainable, with Trimble by our side, we are confident that we will be able to meet these challenges,” Bertona said.

    More information about Caleffi and BIM is available via the new Caleffi BIM website: bim.caleffi.com.

    Vent-Axia Uniflexplus+ program expanded with new diameter

    Vent-Axia unburdens with products aimed at convenience. The Uniflexplus+ air distribution system is designed to make installing a ventilation system as quick and easy as possible. Thanks to the unique click system, the ducts are connected to the distributors and valve collectors in a fraction of the time. Just a few clicks for an airtight connection.

    Until now, Uniflexplus+ was available in a 1xØ90mm and 2xØ90mm version. Now Vent-Axia presents an extension to the Uniflexplus+ flexible plastic air distribution system: Uniflexplus+ Ø69mm. With this extension, they have a complete plastic air distribution system that is suitable for any type of residential construction. As of now, the Uniflexplus+ 69 is available for download on MEPcontent.

    Uniflexplus+ 69


    Uniflexplus+ 69 builds on the trusted click principle. Few components are required for a fast airtight connection. Ø69mm is suitable for new construction and renovation with a more limited construction height. Compared to systems with smaller duct diameters, such as Ø63 mm, there is less air speed, noise and energy consumption. These important advantages are the result of a lower pressure drop at the air flow rates to be achieved. Air flow rates that are easy to calculate in multiples of 25m³/h at a speed of 2.5m/s. There is sufficient margin for balancing and achieving the flow rate, so that installing an extra duct and/or valve is not necessary.

    New with the Ø69mm duct, is the meter indication on the duct. This makes measuring the duct unnecessary. The duct is also easy to cut with the new Uniflexplus+ cutting blade. The new clickable bracket is easy to break off for 1, 2 or 3 ducts.
    Uniflexplus+ 69 will be available in the second quarter of 2022. For data management of our wholesale customers, all information is already available now, to encode and publish this category in the systems.


    Ready for the future


    Vent-Axia tailors product features and components to maximize installation time. As a manufacturer of the flexible plastic air distribution system, Vent-Axia always has an eye for the future. Uniflexplus+ is continuously being developed. Building faster and smarter means, among other things, ensuring lower air velocities while preserving air volumes, flexibility and ease of installation. With the arrival of the new diameter, Vent-Axia Uniflexplus+ is prepared for the future and suitable for every type of housing construction.

    More information about the flexible plastic air distribution system can be found at https://www.uniflexplus.nl/
