Curious as to what ZeeBoer can do for you as a manufacturer or supplier in the construction sector? ZeeBoer helps more than 100 manufacturers with the distribution of product information, specifications, specification texts and BIM data.
During an introductory meeting we discuss, without obligation of course, the solutions that you offer for construction. In what way do you now distribute product information? Does a prescriber, architect, specifications writer or BIM modeller know where to find you?
Where do you start as a manufacturer if you want to come in more often? How are you prescribed? ZeeBoer can help with this, because for more than 30 years we have been helping suppliers in the construction industry to distribute their product information, specification texts and BIM information.
Contact ZeeBoer and we will go through these questions with you. Without obligation of course.
STABU and RAW are contract forms for construction. STABU and RAW are both a specification system. STABU is a standard that is used specifically for residential construction and B&U. RAW is a standard for ground, road and hydraulic engineering (GWW). Recording agreements is important. Also in a BIM process. STABU and RAW are increasingly being combined with BIM.
The manufacturer is a knowledge partner for construction. It is interesting for suppliers to work out solutions for inclusion in STABU or RAW. ZeeBoer can support you with this.
ZeeBoer is a co-initiator of Open Specifications Format (OSF). OSF is a file format for specifications. Think of product specifications, specifications and project specifications. Independent of the classification used.
Previously, a STABU specification was saved in SUF format. Today STABU uses OSF for its catalog and updates. In addition, KOMO has created a library based on OSF and ZeeBoer itself naturally also uses OSF for its specification texts.
Manufacturers can easily manage their DoP or CE declaration thanks to the Utopis® Platform from ZeeBoer. A Declaration of Performance, also called a DoP or CE declaration, is a European declaration by the manufacturer about the performance of a product. The producer must say something about the essential product characteristics.
For some products, few or no characteristics at all have been set by Europe. For some industries, however, keeping a DoP is a lot of work. Here the characteristics often change or there are just many things that you have to record for a product. At that time it is interesting to start managing from a central database. Certainly if you already maintain a database with product characteristics for specification services, website or documentation. In this way, managing DoPs becomes easier, faster, cheaper and error-free.
Digideal for the Built Environment: making the renovation of the Netherlands affordable. Because we are facing major construction challenges in the Netherlands, the construction sector signed a letter of intent last year together with the Ministry of the Interior. Objective: achieve a digital coherence of construction projects. Consider the total life cycle of a building or infrastructure project.
ZeeBoer helps manufacturers make choices
We notice that many manufacturers are thinking about their role in Digideal GO. However, we also hear that people no longer see the forest for the trees. ZeeBoer wants to highlight topics that manufacturers can work with.
As a manufacturer, do you want to respond step by step to Digideal GO? Then contact us to exchange knowledge.
PIM stands for product information management system. ZeeBoer helps manufacturers to create tools that configure a good solution for construction. UP (Utopis® Platform) forms the basis for this.
Products play an important role within a system solution. The product data in UP is not only interesting for a good building specification. Documentation, product sheets and DoPs also use product information from UP.
The Quality Assurance for Building Act guarantees the relationship between project developer, building consumer and contractor. This strengthens the position of the private and business building consumer. Due to the increasing complexity in construction, a revision of the current system of quality assurance is necessary.
In the law, the contractor is responsible for the final result that he produces. Suppliers of building materials are closely involved in the proper delivery of a building project as an important knowledge partner of the construction process.
By properly documenting and distributing your solution, the required materials and the processing thereof, you are responding to the law.
STABU is the independent organization that standardizes and manages building specifications for the Dutch building process. Bouwbreed (Dutch for construction wide) has been developed to participate in the BIM process. However, this new system was insufficiently taken over by users and suppliers.
STABU has been working with ZeeBoer since 2018 to establish a good link with the BIM model. SfB plays an important role here.
ZeeBoer has been doing business with BIT and CSN for years. Our servers are hosted by CSN and are located in the data center of BIT in Ede (Gld). The way in which your website or online tool is linked to the internet depends strongly on the data center. BIT is a specialist and works for many large parties in the Netherlands and the rest of the world. The BIT data center runs entirely on wind energy and is therefore CO2-neutral.
Today is World Cycling Day. ZeeBoer has established that 50% of its people came to work by bike today. But also nice: at Bouwspex.nl you can find quite an impressive list of customers and bicycle solutions. We are proud of it. See https://bouwspex.nl/zoeken?qry=fiets.
The connections between STABU and ZeeBoer are good. Today Peter Veldhuizen was present at the manufacturers day. The transition from STABU2 to BIM and NL/SfB was discussed and the function of specifications in general. Conclusion: the BIM model needs product data and cannot do without a contract.
ZeeBoer has completely renewed its online STABU specificationsconfigurator for new construction and maintenance projects on behalf of Sikkens building paints. After completing your project conditions, Sikkens offers you a suitabe paint system in wich the structure with every layer of paint is made transparent. In the next step, your system…
