Siplast launched their first CAD and BIM objects library with 5 highly detailed roofing systems on polantis.com – Europe’s first, largest and most visited CAD and BIM objects web platform. 5 new roofing systems will be published in the upcoming weeks and dozens more in the upcoming months.
Siplast‘s high performing CAD and BIM objects were developed by Polantis expert architects team. These objects are specially tailored to match the needs of architects and AEC professionals during all planning, construction and operation phases.
Siplast is amongst the first roofing manufacturers to understand the importance and power of a CAD and BIM objects catalogue for the use by the entire supply chain of the building industry. These first 5 systems (and the dozens to follow shortly) give Siplast a huge advantage over its competitors who are yet to create their BIM catalogues.
Polantis insures the worldwide distribution of Siplast’s CAD and BIM objects on its various platforms and partner platforms. Since their introduction last Friday (28th of November) hundreds of systems were downloaded and deployed in projects by hundreds of AEC professionals. In the upcoming days Siplast expects to reach thousands of Architectes and specifiers. Polantis has a base of over 75,000 AEC professionals with a new member joining in every 8 minutes.
The five systems already available online at https://www.polantis.com/siplast all belong to Siplast’s most emblematic and universal line – “Silver”.
The currently proposed roofing systems are of the following categories:
– Under heavy protection or pavers on paving supports
– Garden roofing
All of the “Silver” line products have an integrated RFID chip with and a 20-year guarantee. Siplast provides an in-depth technical support for AEC professionals and thanks to these CAD and BIM objects specifiers get a much faster and better service.
In the upcoming months the entire Siplast catalogue will be developed into CAD and BIM objects. Including interior acoustic insulation products.

Speaking at the Energivie summit at Strassbourg on 4th of November 2014, Bertrand Delcambre, – Head of the BIM implemntation for the french Ministry of Ecology, Sustainable Development and Energy – announced that the BIM reform in France is to start “very early 2015”.
Bertrand Delcambre, aka “Monsieur BIM” (Mr. BIM) was appointed by the current Minister of Housing and Territorial Equality – Sylvia Pinel – earlier this year (25/06/2014). His aim is to mount a French BIM reform similar to the British one. The Ex minister of the same ministry – Cécile Duflot announced on March 2014 that the French BIM reform will take effect on 2017 for the Government procurement projects. Later to be extended to all local and regional public tenders.
France’s BIM reform is part of an ongoing wave of governmental BIM reforms around the world. Both French and German governments recently endeavored in creating BIM reforms after the European directive voted on the 15th of January 2014 incites all 28 EU member states to do so.
France has the largest construction market in Europe (followed by Germany and the United Kingdom) By 2018 all three markets will be entirely reformed (UK by 2016, France by 2017 and Germany by 2018) in order to embrace the building information modeling method of work and technologies.
