Well received by the industry
“The tool has already been successfully used in real-life practical application,” reports Elisabeth Casas Bolivar, Project Manager and responsible for conceptual development of the Online Planning Tool at BASF. “In Spain, for instance, a number of engineering firms have been making very active use of the tool for some time now, and in Italy, Poland and Germany the Online Planning Tool is currently supporting the design stage of infrastructure projects in the water-management sector.”

Technical data sheets, specification documents, declarations of performance, certificates, BIM objects, as well as, where available, relevant reference projects and application videos supplement the data.
