ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions launches BIM mobile app

ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions UK & Ireland has launched its new Openings Studio Mobile App, which allows users to manage buildings as a holistic system. Information stored within the app enables buildings to be safely and effectively designed, constructed, and operated.

Openings Studio is a cloud-based, custom configuration tool for the creation, visualisation, modification, and management of door openings. The BIM application provides access to complete doorset information at all stages from product concept to product care.

The Openings Studio helps builders, architects, and specifiers develop, design, and specify doors and hardware with live BIM connectivity, and assists with the manufacture and quality check of approved doors.

Paul Thompson, BIM Manager for ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions said, “the evolution of BIM technology has coincided with the tightening of building regulations within the industry, with emphasis currently placed on the ‘golden thread’ approach.

“Introduced as a tool to manage buildings as holistic systems, and allow people to use the information to safely and effectively design, construct and operate buildings, BIM is now an industry staple, with a current adoption rate of 71 per cent. The Openings Studio Mobile App is one of the latest developments in digital construction tools.

“It simplifies the collaboration with architects, builders, and others so that changes to door openings are communicated clearly and on time, allowing the building owner to define exactly what components are required before, during, and after the construction of a building.

“The use of Openings Studio from specification to a product in service and beyond captures the ‘golden thread’ of information in relation to doors and ironmongery, and ensures door compliance at all times, which is essential for life safety.”

Users can access the information relating to each door via the app and enable a complete and detailed inspection to be carried out. Any recommended remedial work can be reported within the app, and users can record details of any general maintenance or repairs completed too.
