Press Release   •   Sep 19, 2014 14:07 BST

Knauf Insulation - part of the Knauf Group - is one of the leading insulation manufacturers with operations in over 50 countries and more than 5000 employees. Knauf Insulation offers advanced solutions for energy efficiency in buildings worldwide and has now decided to extend their product offering with BIM objects in BIMobject® Product Portal.

Last spring Knauf Insulation´s sister company Norgips and Danogips entered collaboration with BIMobject, which has inspired Knauf Insulation to join them with this introduction of BIM objects. Knauf Insulation sees the cooperation with BIMobject as a new opportunity and a new tool that creates many beneficial effects in the industry, for architects, designers and developers.

The benefit that arises for the users on the BIMobject® Portal is that they now have access to BIM insulation products from the world´s leading insulation manufacturer and they don´t need to create the advanced objects themselves. BIMobject offer objects that contains all necessary information that is required to be able to create an accomplished project.
