Asset Data Delivery Made Easy


GliderBIM is an online software platform for BIM Level 2 delivery and beyond. It is a Common Data Environment (CDE) for models, which acts as a version control system for asset data. It provides Employers and AEC professionals with tools to manage the production, approval and delivery of building models and all associated asset information.

GliderBIM is an Industry Foundation Class (IFC) model server; it allows you to import models, validate them, merge models, enrich their contents, and export updated IFC models and asset dataset deliverables (COBie or any other data schema). Project teams can plan and track all model production tasks. Online reports inform project teams of model production progress and asset information completeness.
