About Polymelt

The Polymelt brand has existed since 1968 and has since been synonymous with high-quality plastic pipe systems from southern Germany for customers and business partners. Due to a change of ownership and a merger in 2003, a new brand association was created under the Poloplast brand from Austria. In recent years, the company operated under the name Poloplast GmbH. At the turn of the year 2021/2022, this brand association was dissolved - returning to the tried and tested - and Poloplast GmbH became Polymelt GmbH again from January 2022. The company retains its location in Ebenhofen, Germany and the proven production facilities also remain as before. The best quality "Made in Germany". Polymelt operates as well in the United States, with Polymelt America Inc, based in Houston, Texas.

    DINUY helps create sustainable buildings with a new BIM library on

    DINUY launches its new BIM library on 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.

    Adoption of BIM benefits from clear organizational vision

    The construction industry is booming. In the years to come, a lot of building and preservation work will have to be done. With the low margins in construction and a severe personnel shortage in the sector, this is a considerable challenge. But there's something else standing in the way of an effective return: insufficient adoption of processes and technology. Reason enough for Trimble Construction Benelux to conduct a market survey among Belgian and Dutch construction professionals in the field of BIM design and technology. Read the full article here
