The Blea presents industry professionals with reliable product information and BIM Objects for Virtual Building. This new information-driven age calls for product information that is readily available to buyers at all times. We present buyers with 3D virtual catalogues which exist in digital model format for ease of access during all stages of construction. The Blea is East Africa’s most reliable information resource site in matters concerning building supplies and construction technology.
Building Information Modelling (BIM) is the utilisation of 3D digital models – associated with intelligent data – for the design, construction and management of built assets. The BIM workflow involves the use of BIM Objects to generate drawings, documentation, and perspectives. This allows for highly coordinated documentation and model geometry necessary for analyses, such as structural analysis, daylighting studies, energy usage simulation, materials take-offs, and so on. The incorporation of BIM Objects in the Design Phase of building projects realises efficiencies in time-saving, the accuracy of drawing details and costing.
Successfully implemented BIM offers higher quality design and construction projects, and standardised information for more informed decision-making. The project information is more coordinated, reliable and reusable; allowing for higher productivity from the design team, and sustainable cost-effective construction projects. Our mission is to provide the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry with quality products and reliable product information to enable stakeholders to make more informed design and purchase decisions.
