Hoshizaki BIM model

Ice machine manufacturer Hoshizaki has rolled out a digital product catalogue that will be available to customers worldwide.

Hoshizaki Europe B.V. has entered into a partnership with Specifi that will provide consultants, specifiers and equipment suppliers from around the world with access to a complete digital product catalogue.

The catalogues, which include product specification, full pricing in a range of currencies and a complete library of 3D BIM compliant, FCSI standard blocks, utilise Specifi digital platforms to allow customers to configure equipment and produce 3D drawings.

Products included in the first launch will come from the Gram refrigeration range, excluding the Baker series, and a second launch will follow to include the Gram Baker units, together with the complete range of Hoshizaki ice machines.

Steve Loughton, director for UK and Ireland at Hoshizaki UK, said: “With BIM representing such a vital tool for consultants, specifiers and designers throughout the foodservice industry, we are pleased to now be able to offer a complete range of 3D models and BIM compliant designs for many of our Gram refrigerated products.

“Working closely with Stuart and his team at Specifi, we’ve built a quality digital equipment portfolio, giving system users the tools they need to incorporate our range into their projects. Going forward, we will continue to work with Specifi to complete our portfolio, including our Hoshizaki ice machine range.”

Stuart Campbell, VP of UK sales for Specifi, added: “We’re delighted to be working with Hoshizaki to create their digital product catalogue and give customers access to this quality, future proofed data through our world equipment repository.”

Revit RFA format and DWG files will be available in the library.

  1. Good to see manufacturers embracing BIM … out of interest will the files be available outside the Specifi environment should consultants/dealers not be operating this system?
