The GAI continues to be at the forefront of the provision of BIM Product Data Templates. GAI technical manager Douglas Masterson, who is also chair of BIM Fenestration Relevant Authority has recently overseen the creation of a brand new doorset PDT, through a working group co-chaired with Kevin Underwood of the British Woodworking Federation. The PDT is available in the technical section of the GAI website.
In the next project for the Relevant Authority, the GAI and the Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF) will work together to create a series of PDTs for window hardware.
The GAI continues to develop its own range of PDTs for hardware, through the ongoing work with the French trade association UNIQ, which will enhance the existing library by ensuring these are in alignment with the ISO 23386 BIM data dictionary standard.
