Take a look at our case studies to see how we help manufacturers get ready for BIM!

Don’t just take our word for it when we say we know a thing or two about BIM. Take a look at our case studies and testimonials to see how we have helped manufacturers, both big and small; get ready for BIM - with the highest quality BIM objects out there!

Manthorpe Building Products offer quality innovative products for every aspect of building construction, from groundwork to the roofline, from newbuild to retrofit. With over 30 years’ experience in the building plastics industry, they pride themselves on their in-house UK manufacturing and investment in cutting edge technology and machinery.

Manthorpe is constantly looking at ways to make it easier for specifiers to grow their knowledge of the company’s products. After researching the market, Manthorpe realised that BIM was fundamental to moving forward on the digital construction landscape, they agreed that bimstore was the right partner to support them in their journey and ultimately help them distribute their digital products to specifiers.

Since hosting on bimstore, they have had over 2000 object downloads. With over 6000 views on their company profile and an accumulated total of over 61,000 BIM views, Manthorpe Building Products have been steadily growing awareness with specifiers.

They hosted their components on bimstore in September 2015 to exhibit products relevant for government building works such as underfloor vents, loft doors, access panels and airbricks.

Using a BIM platform to host the company’s products has allowed specifiers from across the world to view high quality content which has allowed Manthorpe to track downloads by region.

Having now hosted on bimstore for over three years, Manthorpe Buildings are BIM veterans and an established partner. Vanessa Woodward, Marketing Manager said,

“We were first made aware of bimstore when our Sales Director attended a conference on the impact of BIM on manufacturers.

“After many meetings and lengthy discussions about the hosting platform we wanted to use, we decided to use bimstore due to their overall quality, value for money, innovative products and ease of use for manufacturers and specifiers”

Manthorpe Building Products currently have a portfolio that offers 11 products on bimstore in Revit format as the predominant software used by the UK market.

Innovation has always been at the core of the company ethos, advancing to BIM and hosting on bimstore has allowed them to meet the demands and the needs of the emerging digital specifier.
