Stora Enso’s CLT wall and floor panels now available as BIM objects

A key element in Stora Enso’s strategy is to increase the use of wood as a building material. To make this happen, Stora Enso’s Wood Products division promotes cost efficient multi-storey building systems based on wood components such Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) and Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL). Now the Building System manuals are available as digital objects from the Building Information Modelling (BIM) library.


Stora Enso collaborates with ProdLib, a product library for designers, to bring the Building System manuals and building components to every architect and engineer's desktops. Designers can find the CLT wall and floor components as well as the wall and floor structures as BIM objects (currently only for Revit), and many structural details in DWG and PDF format. The structure types and construction details are easy to find with a customised interface by clicking a specific part in the example building.


“This is just the first step in the development of a digital toolbox to make our building components and systems easily available for designers in a form that is also usable for our production planning team”, says Petri Perttula, SVP, Building Solutions at Stora Enso’s Wood Products division.


“The real benefits of BIM will become visible only when the common rules, roles and definitions for BIM in wood construction industry have been defined throughout the design and construction process. There is still much work to do, and Stora Enso wants to take an active role in making this happen”, Perttula continues.


New ProdLib users need to download the product library first and after that the Stora Enso’s building components and systems are easily available and continuously updated. Revit users get the BIM objects directly in their own software by clicking the Stora Enso icon.
