Wienerberger is the world’s largest producer of bricks and wall systems this is their product integration director Marc Bellair speaking about his experience with Polantis
“Polantis’s service is a real gem. For Architects and specifiers, image and rendering are of the highest importance in the BIM era it is becoming more and more evident”
Polantis’s website is a brilliant idea, their strength lies in the proposition of the largest possible array of formats compatible with all the software used by Architects and specifiers. This tool is very valuable for them, all they have to do is just find the product they need and download it in the format of their choice.
It is still too early to dispose of paper catalogues even if many AEC professionals revert to digital media. Many still need and use paper catalogues. CAD and BIM objects are complementary though they represent a great advantage for us.
Despite the fact that the direct impact of BIM catalogs cannot be measured precisely. The process of working with such media allows architects and specifiers to make their projects evolve with greater ease. We often discover that the products that were specified in the beginning of a project are not the same as the ones finally rendered and integrated. Polantis’s service allows AEC professionals to take decisions, evaluate and test several work hypothesis. It’s a very good addition to the data and materials we provide them.
We had a very positive experience working with the Polantis team. It’s a brilliant team of people: Reactive, professional and easy to work with. They have a real know-how and I think their quality/price ratio is unbeatable. We never expected such high rendering quality for our products.
