Dalton–Taylor Adhesives has launched a new suite of digital tools for Building Information Modeling (BIM) as a result of its partnership with BIMsmith, a leading product research platform for building professionals.

“Building Information Modeling represents a major shift in technology for the broader construction industry,” said Paul Murfin, president of Taylor. “Taylor is proud to be at the heart of the innovation taking place to improve the entire process, from design to implementation.”

The new Taylor digital tools include a full library of downloadable BIM files with which architects, contractors and other building professionals can include Taylor product data in their digital building plans. As a result of the partnership, building professionals can also design custom BIM flooring assemblies with Taylor products using the free BIMsmith Forge configurator, allowing for rapid design with BIM data from multiple brands.

In addition to making 3D modeling easier for the architectural community, BIM tools make it possible for building professionals to execute complex performance and sustainability analysis, setting the stage for more informed decisions throughout the design process, according to the company.

“Taylor Adhesives is an excellent example of what it looks like to combine product performance and sustainability through technology,” said Benjamin Glunz, CEO of BIMsmith. “We’re thrilled to have Taylor on the BIMsmith platform.”
