Building Information Modelling (BIM) describes the process of designing a building collaboratively using one comprehensive system of computer models. The process involves the generation and management of, information rich, digital representation of both the physical and functional characteristics of a facility.
Our site seeks to provide you with the BIM data for all MBH brick products in formats which we hope will suit the various software packages that are available for Building Information Modelling.
Use our ‘Product Selector’ to find a product from any of our brands, complete the BIM section, and you can download the appropriate files. Further information or help on the properties of these files and how to use them can be found in the help section.

For the professional involved, BIM enables a virtual information model to be passed down from the design team to the contractors and then on to the owner or operator, creating a single shared model, which reduces information loss and provides an extensive range of information.
It is hoped that BIM will:
- Improve visualisation
- Improve productivity due to easy retrieval of information
- Increase co-ordination of construction and management documents
- Embed and link vital facility information
- Increase the speed of delivery
- Reduce costs
