SKYDÔME, the manufacturer specialising in zenithal overhead lighting solutions, has entrusted BIM & CO with the publication of its BIM objects.

BIM&CO and SKYDÔME have entered into a collaboration to distribute quality BIM objects dedicated to natural lighting for all stages of the BIM process

Through the BIM&CO for Manufacturers offer, BIM&CO and SKYDÔME have entered into a collaboration to distribute quality BIM objects dedicated to natural lighting for all stages of the BIM process.

True to its motto “Opening up to the world around us“, Skydôme has entered the world of BIM. The manufacturer of zenithal lighting, ventilation and smoke extraction solutions was impressed by BIM&CO’s technology.

In search of a rigorous partner, Skydôme has indeed chosen the start-up to take charge of the modelling, integration and distribution of its flagship products Skybaie and Equilux Wood.

The manufacturer, whose teams are currently being trained in BIM and modelling, plans to publish more parametric objects on BIM&CO. With the BIM&CO solution, which gives them direct access to the platform, Skydôme can easily publish new objects or update existing product data. This is a unique feature in the market.

Aurore BRZEZINSKI, R & D manager, commented: “It was important for us to offer architects and design companies objects that are not just “marketing” objects, but are instead real “full BIM” parametric objects, whose data are correctly structured and complete. SKYDÔME has to take into account the business constraints of the different stakeholders in the digital model.  

In addition to the quality of the objects modelled by BIM&CO, we appreciated the support of their teams during all the stages of the project. We have equipped ourselves with BIM software in-house, we are training our teams, and we hope to model our entire range ourselves in the future. Thanks to BIM&CO’s recommendations and advice on best practice, will have no difficulty publishing them on the platform independently in the long term.”

As Etienne Mullie, CEO of BIM&CO clarifies: “BIM&CO’s policy is to offer manufacturers easy access to BIM through support and state-of-the-art technology. BIM&CO offers a set of tools enabling manufacturers to structure and distribute their product data in the form of BIM Ready objects. Their objects are thus adapted to all stages of the BIM process, from design through to construction, operation and maintenance. Our goal is not to lock clients into a proprietary solution, but rather to work alongside them and give them the keys to autonomy. It is this autonomy, and with it the assurance of maintaining control over their brand and product data, that has convinced Skydôme, with whom we are particularly proud to be collaborating.
