Uponor content library now available through Unifi Labs
By Jillian MorganConstruction
Uponor North America has partnered with Unifi Labs to make its Autodesk Revit content library available through Unifi Connect.
The cloud-based portal for BIM content by Unifi, a digital content management and content provider for the building industry, is available globally to architectural firms, engineering firms, contractors, and operators.
“Unifi Connect allows Uponor to provide our customers with the best BIM content experience in the industry,” says
Unifi Connect allows designers to access and insert building product manufacturer content directly into Autodesk Revit models, and browse content from internal, firm-based libraries alongside content from Uponor.
Manufacturers and designers can collaborate and exchange data through content accessed in real time. The portal allows designers to access content through specific, administrator-approved manufacturer channels – a feature intended to eliminate disconnect between the content provider and user.
When a manufacturer makes updates to its content library, the administrator is alerted to the changes, including models that may exist in live projects, in order to make necessary updates within projects or firm-based libraries.
Uponor is a supplier of plumbing, fire safety, radiant heating/cooling, hydronic piping and pre-insulated piping systems for residential and commercial buildings. Headquartered in Mississauga, ON, the company has satellite offices in Vancouver, Calgary, Regina, Quebec and Atlantic Canada, as well as two distribution centres. www.uponor.ca www.unifilabs.com
