GEZE recognises the potential of waya
With BIM (Building Information Modeling), construction projects can be digitized right from the start and important information on planning, execution and infrastructure can be mapped in the so-called digital twin. For implementation in practice, BIM-compliant data is required as a source of information, among other things. In order to support planners in digital planning and to further advance the digitalization of construction, the globally active family-owned company GEZE is now making its products and system solutions available as BIM content.
As of now, the manufacturer's revolving, swing or sliding door systems, among others, can be accessed as BIM content via the waya tool online or via plug-in, which can initially be used with Revit or ArchiCAD. The result: loss-free networking in BIM planning, advice directly in the CAD system, digitized project and product data, and addressee-specific information throughout the planning process.

BIM-enabled configuration directly in the CAD system
In waya, GEZE products are displayed as dynamic BIM content - this means that the BIM content can be individualized and placed according to predefined parameters in line with requirements. The basis for this BIM-enabled product configurator is the plug-in from BIMsystems. Planners thus effectively save time in the search, selection and placement of digitized window and door products.
Whether revolving doors, automatic sliding doors or revolving doors e.g. with door closers - the planner can select the dynamic BIM content in waya, individualize it and place it directly in the BIM model. The planning phase is not interrupted and takes place in a familiar environment - thanks to the plug-in directly into the CAD system.

The digital transformation for GEZE continues
Innovation and sustainability are a top priority at GEZE. Both in the production of building technology and in the consulting services for windows and doors. That is why the company now relies on waya by BIMsystems. Because the high efficiency and functionality of the BIM solution is convincing: short lead times and low effort in the creation of the BIM content for a profitable result in the sense of real Big Open BIM!
waya is free for planners with all basic functions! With it, they and the other building stakeholders can search, transform, configure and place BIM content from GEZE and collaborate with partners in a central data model. The installation is straightforward: After downloading the free plugin and installing it, users only need to register once for free. Afterwards, waya is ready for operation and can be controlled directly from the CAD system.
