Working with you

BMI doesn’t simply provide off the shelf products — we look to work closely with architects to develop high quality roofs that form a cohesive part of a building’s design. From vapour control layers and sealants, to fall protection systems and roof-based technologies, every element of a system can be fine-tuned to the specific requirements of your design. We’ll provide detailed drawings to show critical interfaces, calculate insulation thermal values and conduct condensation risk analysis, as well as advising on appropriate solutions.

Building information modelling (BIM)

BIM is transforming how buildings are designed and built, streamlining specifications and strengthening relationships between all strands of the project team. BMI’s in-house developers can author items for the leading architectural software such as Autodesk Revit, ArchiCAD Graphisoft and the IFC standard and our experts are always on hand to support you with your digital information and graphical requirements.

Our rapidly growing library of BIM objects allows you to download roof solutions as a single package, providing exact quantities for every element in the specification including tiles, fixings and membranes.
