“What makes Xinaps unique is that they’ve been instrumental in helping us translate how we typically think in a product and application development way and transform that into a solution that fits seamlessly into a BIM process.”

 – Marcus Fich, Global Business Development Manager

“Sharing our profound fire safety expertise in early design stage of a building guarantees that the models of our clients are as accurate and complete as possible up to the level of necessary fire extinguishing equipment.”

– Koen van Dijk, Marketing Coordinator at Saval

Have you ever wondered why the water pressure in some hotels is much better than that in others? The water booster solution of Grundfus guarantees constant pressure and energy efficiency.

The challenge
The global leader in advanced pump solutions constantly strives to reinvent the processes of handling water technology and its impact on climate and society. The ultimate goal is to improve the quality of life for people and take care of the planet. In search of the next ground-breaking approach to increasing its sustainable footprint, Grundfos recognizes the importance of getting more closely connected with the built environment. A role in this decision plays the need to transition from product thinking to solution thinking. The building design is a crucial step of the total building lifecycle and Grundfos, as a manufacturer, realizes the positive contribution this will make towards delivering more accurate BIM models with up-to-date building content.

Xinaps’ solution 
Intelligent optimization – Simplified the process of water booster selection based on multiple cost scenarios and 3D visualization.

The result
By using our plugin, Grundfos was able to check whether their model was compliant with Dutch safety standards in a quick and efficient way.

Have you ever walked past a fire extinguisher or a fire hose reel in a Dutch office or Schiphol Airport Amsterdam? Chances are it was one of Saval’s fire safety solutions.

The challenge
Saval strives to be at the forefront of innovation in their industry. That is why they are the first fire safety manufacturer who foresees the need to stay connected to a building model during the design process. Their vision is to offer the Dutch fire safety standards directly in Revit fully synchronized with the BIM model. They also want to create a seamless link to the most up-to-date Revit families. In this way, the design team can use all fire safety elements accurately, right when they are needed. Saval sees Xinaps as the right partner to achieve this.

Xinaps’ solution
We worked closely with a group of engineering firms, we tailored the tool to the needs of the market.The goal was to reach architects and engineers in early design and provide them with a solution which minimizes manual efforts and automates fire safety calculations.

The result
By using our plugin, Grundfos was able to check whether their model was compliant with Dutch safety standards in a quick and efficient way.
