In order to optimise the work of everyone involved in a project and make it possible to calculate the energy consumption of our products and adapt them to specific project data, RECASENS & LLAZA have adopted the BIM method and are making our entire range of products available as BIM objects.

RECASENS & LLAZA BIM objects are available in Revit® and Archicad® formats, in Spanish and English. After registering, at, you will be able to:

  • Download products in Revit®, Archicad®, IFC®, etc. format
  • Download catalogues and manuals
  • Request information and advice for your project

What is BIM?

BIM (Building Information Modelling) is a method used to improve information management in the design, execution and maintenance phases of construction projects. It is the next step in the evolution of CAD. The BIM method is a combination of the following:

  • 2D and 3D modelling of construction project components with technical and graphic information.
  • Complete information on the physical, technical, operational and commercial properties of each component and the whole.
  • An application for designing and virtually modelling projects, and managing data on the properties of components.
  • A work method that streamlines the flow of information between professionals in different disciplines (engineers, construction companies, architects, structural engineers, interior designers, etc.) and alerts them to project changes and updates.
  • An integrated database with greater control of on-site data to make all projects smart projects.

Characteristics of the BIM method

With BIM projects, the construction professionals working on the project can modify the different BIM components as the project evolves, while at the same time managing them in the database. This means the BIM project can assimilate the new data and update and adapt it to the design, which makes project development, execution and maintenance much more efficient and prevents coordination failures and errors. With BIM projects, it is possible to:

  • Study project development and execution processes
  • Manage resources to ensure optimal design, acoustics, lighting and energy consumption
  • Calculate structural behaviour in real situations
  • Analyse project volumetrics according to total area, living area and traffic
  • Identify discrepancies between the different BIM components

BIM objects

These are 3D and/or 2D virtual representations of construction products created for architectural and engineering projects. The graphic representations are accompanied by technical, graphic and commercial information, all inside the model. These objects can be parametric, in other words, their measurements can be adapted to maximum and minimum manufactured dimensions just by changing certain numerical values. The objects include dimensions of manufacturing materials exactly as they would be in a real environment. And the objects are linked, so if one object changes, the other dependent objects change automatically.

Advantages for professionals

Brand product libraries allow professionals to work  since they provide 2D and/or 3D graphic, technical and commercial information endorsed by the manufacturer.

This saves time in project design and provides everyone involved with accurate data on products, since it is supplied and verified by the manufacture itself, which streamlines the decision-making process for purchasing products.
