WHAT IS ORANGE BUTTON®?

Firestop design can be processed in BIM with ORANGE BUTTON® by Compact Brandpreventie BV. ORANGE BUTTON® runs clash detection, identifies penetrations and automatically finds firestop solutions in BIM. Additionally, integrated advices are included in the BIM firestop design that our ORANGE BUTTON® software automatically generates. These advices include aperture size, drywall assembly and installation support system. The integration of these advices in the BIM firestop design enable us to reduce costs and enhance quality of the fitting of fire-stopping on construction site.

HOW ORANGE BUTTON® WORKS

CHECKLIST PHASE

1

FORWARD BIM FILES

Forward your BIM files – preferably in Revit – to Compact Brandpreventie B.V.

We work with the Architectural, Structural, Mechanical and Electrical Building Information Model. If the native file is a Revit model, we would like to receive this Revit file. If the native file is not a Revit model – but for example a Tekla, ArchiCAD or Adomi model – then we would only like to receive an IFC export of this file.

2

PERFORM CHECK

We perform a check based on the present information in your BIM and process the missing information in a clear checklist.

We perform this check based on the playing rules specified in our infographic.

3

PROCESS INFORMATION

You process the missing information in BIM as specified by our checklist.

Repeat step 02 & 03 until the correct information is processed in BIM.

QUOTATION PHASE

4

DETERMINE PRICE

We determine a price for the BIM firestop design.

Furthermore, you receive an IFC file with a specification of all “clashes” (unique services penetrating fire-separating elements) in BIM.

5

CONFIRM ORDER

If agreed, you confirm the order for BIM firestop design.

It is important to send the order confirmation as early as possible, so that our BIM firestop design – with “ADVICE” & “REMARKS” – can be processed on time.

ENGINEERING PHASE

6

PUSH THE BUTTON

We push the ORANGE BUTTON® and generate the BIM firestop design with the “ADVICE” & “REMARKS”.

The BIM firestop design can be generated in different phases. The “ADVICE” and “REMARKS” include aperture size, drywall assembly and installation support system.

7

PROCESS OPTIMIZATION

You deliberate and – in due time – process the optimization in BIM as indicated by our “ADVICE” & “REMARKS”.

The optimization in BIM can be processed in different phases.

SOLUTIONS PHASE

8

PUSH THE BUTTON AGAIN

We push the ORANGE BUTTON® again and finalize the BIM firestop design.

The BIM firestop design with integrated “ADVICE” can be finalized in different phases.

OUTCOME

AFFORDABLE, QUALITY FIRESTOP SYSTEMS USING SMART AND INNOVATIVE BIM DESIGN SOFTWARE

PLAYING RULES

Your Building Information Model (BIM) has to comply to some playing rules if you optimally want to benefit our in-house BIM firestop design software. One of these playing rules implies to process the fire rating (“fire resistance period” or “FRP”) in the Architectural and Structural model.

Please check the INFOGRAPHIC below for more information or watch our INSTRUCTION VIDEOS for more information.

INSTRUCTION VIDEOS

The quality of your BIM is important if you optimally want to benefit from our ORANGE BUTTON® BIM firestop design software. In order to use ORANGE BUTTON® correctly, it is necessary to process a minimum of required information in your BIM. The responsibility of correctly specifying and processing information in BIM lies with the designing parties of the Structural, Architectural, Mechanical and Electrical model.

The instruction videos below provide all explanations on how this important information should be specified and processed using Autodesk Revit software.

FIRE RATING (“FIRE RESISTANCE PERIOD”) IN THE STRUCTURAL MODEL

Below video explains how the fire rating (“fire resistance period” or “FRP”) should be specified and processed correctly in the Structural Model in accordance with the BIM basic Information Delivery Manual (IDM).

FIRE RATING (“FIRE RESISTANCE PERIOD”) IN THE ARCHITECTURAL MODEL

Below video explains how the fire rating (“fire resistance period” or “FRP”) should be specified and processed correctly in the Architectural Model in accordance with the BIM basic Information Delivery Manual (IDM).

ORANGE BUTTON® FRP CONTENT LIBRARY

The ORANGE BUTTON® FRP CONTENT library is specifically developed and designed to process the fire rating (“fire resistance period” or “FRP”) in an alternative way in the Structural and Architectural model. This alternative way of specifying the fire rating (“fire resistance period” or “FRP”) for ORANGE BUTTON® prefers to work with this ORANGE BUTTON® FRP CONTENT library.

LOADING ORANGE BUTTON® FRP CONTENT IN BIM

The ORANGE BUTTON® FRP CONTENT library is made available to process the fire rating (“fire resistance period” “FRP”) in an alternative way in the Structural and Architectural model. You can choose two different alternative methods of specifying.

BIM DESIGN WORKFLOW

ORANGE BUTTON® is more than just one push of a button. A well-structured BIM design workflow is of great importance to guarantee the quality of the fire-stopping being installed on construction site. We subdivided our BIM design process in a “CHECKLIST PHASE”,”QUOTATION PHASE”, “ENGINEERINGPHASE” and “SOLUTIONS PHASE”. These phases are further described below.
