Catering equipment manufacturer Welbilt has teamed up with Specifi to create a BIM Revit library which covers four of Welbilt’s major brands: Convotherm, Merrychef, Garland and Manitowoc.
By working with foodservice design platform Specifi, Welbilt aims to better support its range of foodservice equipment by capturing the reality of its products in a way that it feels paper isn’t able to convey.
The firm believes it is also able to better support foodservice dealers and consultants by providing a central hub of data for all to access.
Alistair Farquhar, channel, distribution and specification manager – Welbilt UK, explained: “By working with Specifi, Welbilt is now be able to provide dealers and foodservice design consultants with instant access to an extensive library of BIM solutions, data sheets, technical drawing and price lists all in one place, thus easing the consultation process for Convotherm, Merrychef, Garland and Manitowoc models.”
Welbilt says it values BIM as an important element for designing commercial kitchens and therefore will add further brands to the library in the near future.
Welbilt’s Specifi BIM Revit library went live at the beginning of August.
