Weil-McLain has officially rolled out BIM-Revit files for the SlimFit™ Commercial High Efficiency Condensing boiler. The roll out is due to a partnership with Autodesk Seek and Anguleris Technologies.

The SlimFit boiler is an extension of Weil-McLain’s Commercial High Efficiency Condensing Boiler line (550MBH & 750 MBH), which is available in three sizes: 1,000 MBH, 1,500 MBH, and 2,000 MBH. The packaged boiler is on wheels, and according to the company, the compact design requires minimal clearance so that it fits through most typical doorways due to its narrow design. It can be further split in half at the jobsite to allow for maneuvering around tight corners, narrow hallways, and small elevators. With a combustion efficiency rating above 96%, the SlimFit satisfies the same needs that could be provided by a larger system but without the inefficiency.

Using the Autodesk Seek web service enables designers, architects, and engineers to discover, preview, and download BIM content, drawings, and specifications. For Weil-McLain, the company says it is a unique way to connect with designers, architects, and engineers who specify or recommend heating products.

“BIM is becoming more and more prevalent in the commercial construction marketplace. As our friends in the consulting engineer community adopt its use in more and more project designs, we are pleased to assist with a robust offering of Revit models of our commercial boilers,” said Dave Burggren, LEED green associate and director of commercial sales at Weil-McLain
