Jaga Heating Products, manufacturers of award-winning energy-efficient radiators, has released the latest addition to its range of Revit compatible Building Information Modelling (BIM) compatible product files – the Oxygen Demand Controlled Ventilation (DCV) system.
The Oxygen Demand Controlled Ventilation system joins Jaga’s trench heating, Low-Surface-Temperature (LST), wall-mounted and freestanding radiator ranges in being fully optimised in Revit format for inclusion in BIM projects. These 3D digital rendering and data files provide architects and building services engineers the opportunity to incorporate the most suitable heating and ventilation solutions for a project’s specific requirements. Phil Marris, Managing Director of Jaga Heating Products UK, said, “I passionately believe that Building Information Modelling (BIM) will play a critical part in shaping the future of how building services are incorporated into construction and design. Jaga as a company is fully behind the technology and will continue to optimise its range of Revit compatible BIM files for the benefit of our current and future customers.”
Jaga’s Oxygen system monitors and measures the indoor air quality (IAQ) of a room ensuring a healthy, clean and fresh environment is maintained. The discreet refresh units sit inside a variety of Jaga’s Low-H2O radiators bringing in filtered fresh air from outside while a CO2 sensor continually monitors the IAQ by reading the CO2 levels in the room. A Smart Switch also gives the users the ability to boost intake if necessary. All the components are now available in Revit compatible BIM files allowing users to see and calculate the impact the system will have. This is particularly useful in providing a comfortable environment in circumstances such as schools and offices, as the intelligent system monitors CO levels and reacts accordingly to maintain optimal levels of Indoor Air Quality (IAQ).
For Jaga’s customers, incorporating BIM files into the design of the project has numerous benefits:
- Improved co-ordination of design and project deliverables
- Collaborative working partnerships to ensure best value from project start to completion
- Greater understanding of the cost impact of design changes
- Faster and more efficient delivery of projects
- Whole life asset management
- Capital expenditure savings of approximately 15 - 20% per project
