How BIM helps with Wkb according to Ubbink

"At the moment, not every contractor or installer is aware of it." "However, starting in mid-2022, an independent quality assurance agency will examine whether all building plans and work meet the set requirements," explains Mark Bloem, Ubbink's Project Manager Sales. "A file must then be created as part of the Quality Assurance for Building Act (Wkb)." But, as a contractor or installer, how do you go about doing that? Working in BIM can assist you in achieving this."

Structure and standards in BIM: an absolute necessity

BIM promises a future where all parties can collaborate by sharing project information from initial design through costing, build, delivery and ongoing operations. According to Trimble MEP’s Charles M.E. Lekx, real value can only be achieved when all parties across the construction sector operate in accordance with the same industry standards.

Growing BIM adoption and a need for uniformity within the construction industry worldwide have led to various public and private initiatives to develop standards that overlap in places. Harmonisation will be required as the opportunities for collaboration increase. Well-known standards in the UK and Ireland include ETIM and ETIM MC (European Technical Information Model), the Uniclass 2015 classifications, and the uniform GTIN code, also known as EAN / UPC issued by GS1 and, within the electrotechnical sector, the widely used Luckins data standard.

The new SpiroVent Superior S250

The solution that even sounds perfect.
Even a dog won't notice it's there!
And now you can quietly download it from

The word is out about our vacuum degassing technology being quieter than ever. The almost silent secret is kept by our patented Venturi Loop, a speed-controlled centrifugal pump combined with a Venturi. A sensor continuously monitors the vessel pressure as degassing takes place, and the pump is adjusted accordingly. This ensures smooth pressure steps and accurate vessel pressure control. In real terms, this means very low resonance and barely discernible system noise. Just imagine a sound level of only 41dB(A)! Let’s not forget that expelling all the air from a system means there will be no air left to cause noisethere either.

Getting the right product first time right
The SpiroVent Superior S250 has been designed for light commercial applications, in other words, for smaller volume systems. Adding this product expands the degassing family, so that we can accommodate the growing demand from new systems which operate at lower temperatures.

It even sounds perfect... and that's just for starters

The SpiroVent Superior S250 is an automatic vacuum degasser. It removes dissolved and free gases from the system water in closed heating and cooling systems using Henry's laws principle. The great advantage of the SpiroVent Superior S250 is that no matter where it is installed it will remove air.

The only condition for the location of the S250 next to pressure is its working temperature range of 15-70°C. As a rule of thumb, the system return normally is a good point to install the SpiroVent Superior S250.

In addition a smooth degassing operation, there is more:
  • Low defect rate and replacement costs

  • Low service and maintenance required

  • High degassing performance

    What's new: latest update of the Raccorderie Metalliche PLiP for Piping

    The App has been updated! The descriptions of the selection have been adapted. In the type description, the connection type and diameter/thread descriptions are added to the selection of the PLiP. And in the parts list (schedule) we added a material column. As a result, there is a better relationship between the documentation of Raccorderie Metalliche and the application. This makes it easier for engineers to order fitting materials.

    The free Raccorderie Metalliche Product Line Placer App for Revit makes it easy to design piping systems with accurate and localized Raccorderie Metalliche content. Just click, draw, and the right fittings are automatically added to your piping system. In addition, if you want to make advanced connections with real-world fittings rather than using Revit’s custom fittings, it takes only a few clicks.
    Use the in-app predefined schedules and order your items directly from the material lists with a guaranteed up-to-date content.

    The following content is included in the App:

    • InoxPres

    • InoxPres Gas

    • InoxPres HT

    • InoxPres Steam

    • SteelPres

    • AESPres

    • AESPres Gas

    • MarinePres

    Updated, configurable content from IBMO, the sealing specialist for cable and pipe transits

    IBMO is specialized in fire resistant, gas and watertight sealing systems. The sealing systems are suitable for Industry, Building, Marine and Offshore.

    New are the Uniseal and Pressure seals, now also configurable in Revit.

    IBMO was asked by several customers whether seals could not be made configurable in Revit: this saves the engineer a considerable amount of time and work. This means that when the size of the pipe or the size of the hole in which it is placed changes, the seal is automatically adjusted to the correct type.

    MEPcontent's content engineers have managed to implement these changes, allowing you as an engineer to make your design much more efficiently and faster with the seals!

    The updated products also include instructional videos for configurable processing of the IBMO Uniseal and Pressure Seals.

    ‘We can help MEP engineers much more effectively now that we can meet the demand for BIM’

    Sustainability is a hot topic. There is now a huge demand for climate solutions that don’t use fossil fuels. And that hasn’t escaped the notice of NIBE Energietechniek BV, a leading supplier of heating, cooling, ventilation and hot water systems. “Along with project developers, consultants, installers, contractors and housing corporations, we’re facing a huge challenge.

    We need to make the existing and new housing stock more sustainable,” says Product Manager Maarten Sonneveld. “Smart Homes is another hot topic. We’ve all seen the smart doorbells, automatic blinds and lighting that can fitted with modern software systems such as NIBE UPLINK and MYUPLINK. Which isn’t surprising being operated with a smartphone. In the future, more and more climate systems – and that includes heat pumps – will also be operated in this way. That’s why all of NIBE’s heat pumps are now, given that smart devices make our lives more comfortable, simpler and more attractive.”
