Stephanie Lee, Marketing Manager, PC Henderson
As a forward-thinking company PC Henderson continually invests in the development and innovation of their products and so it’s important that this is also reflected in the tools that they offer to their customers. In light of the proposed deadline of 2016 for all Government-funded construction projects to meet Level 2 BIM requirements they started to carry out extensive research into the steps to take and the best supplier to help reach these requirements.
After thorough research, the decision to use bimstore was made due to reputation, customer service levels, expertise, value for money and the ease in which BIM objects could be offered to PC Henderson’s customers. PC Henderson chose bimstore as a knowledgeable and experienced partner to ensure that the BIM components offered, reflected the quality of Henderson products and exceed industry expectations. They have also been able to take advantage of the wealth of analytical information provided in order to understand users of their BIM content.
With a vast product range that includes a variety of functionality e.g. sliding, folding, round the corner, automated and multi-directional – it was important that PC Henderson chose products that are not only highly sought after and specified by architects but were also the most suitable for typical government funded applications. As a result, the Husky 50 and Husky 100 sliding door systems were chosen due to their popularity, flexibility in terms of the type of door that they can cater for e.g. single, double, bi-passing, pocket door as well as door weight. PCC Henderson has plans to further increase their range to provide further flexibility at project planning stage.
As one of the first sliding and folding door hardware manufacturers to launch BIM components, PC Henderson is not only satisfying the UK requirements but also exceeding expectations of global customers. BIM has allowed them to integrate information requests into their digital strategy and track requests and overall feedback from customers has been positive!
