Daikin Applied AHUs Are BIM Ready


Daikin Applied UK has successfully completed BIM modelling on five of its bespoke air handling unit innovations. The AHU BIM objects can be manipulated to align with a range of different projects and are now available on the National BIM library for consultants and contractors to view and download.

Based in Minneapolis but operating across the world, Daikin Applied designs and manufactures technologically advanced commercial HVAC systems for customers around the world. Daikin branded products, solutions, and services are sold through a global network of dedicated sales, service and parts offices.

Daikin Applied is aiming to create a comprehensive library of high quality BIM models for its HVAC products in support of its building owner, architect, MEP and contractor customers using Autodesk Revit technology. Daikin Applied products help to save energy, reduce environmental impact and help facilities earn points towards LEED certification with EPD verification.

The designs include: modular with thermal wheel, professional –double deck unit, professional – side-by-side unit, professional – single deck and professional – hospital specification unit.

The AHU designs incorporate 18 BIM objects to form the basis of design with both fixed and parametric BIM models. Fourteen fixed sizes of AHU modular unit are available in the library along with four professional AHU models which are parametric objects. The models can be easily manipulated to exact dimensions of the unit to be supplied.

Daikin Applied UK believes that the range of base models means that virtually all application requirements can be met for the BIM object to be incorporated into the building design model. This can allow for potentially complex and bespoke manufactured units to be scaled down and dropped into drawings with ease and speed, according to a company representative.

Daikin Applied UK chiller object drawings are also widely available across all ranges upon request through the company website.
