BIM (Building Information Modelling) aims to make the construction process more streamlined and efficient by enabling project information, accurate material costs and installation times to be modelled. Through listing its comprehensive range of brassware, valves and plumbing fixtures including the extensive range of pressure reducing valves and unique tenant valves, RWC UK is providing those involved in the design of buildings with high-quality information that will help them improve the specification, asset and lifecycle management of any project.

By visiting architects and specifiers will have access to BIM objects for RWC UK’s ball valves, thermostatic mixing valves (TMV2 and TMV3), Caremix taps and Showerguard range as well as its award-winning Radiance Thermal Interface Units.

Eric Winter, Technical Director says: “BIM compliance is becoming increasingly necessary, especially since Level 2 became mandatory in the design and build of public sector procured buildings. It’s invaluable that we’re now able to provide our customers with the most up to date tools they need and that’s why we’ve worked hard get our portfolio of products BIM ready.”

RWC UK Launches New TIU CPD

27 July 2016

Reliance Worldwide Corporation (UK) Ltd (RWC UK), the leading manufacturer of water control systems and plumbing solutions, has launched a new CPD seminar focusing on the use of Thermal Interface Units (TIUs), approved by three professional bodies.

The new seminar ‘Understanding the use of Thermal Interface Units within Community Heating Networks’ has been specifically developed for consultants, specifiers and architects involved in designing heating and hot water systems in commercial or domestic premises, and is approved by CIBSE, RIBA and The CPD Certification Service.

Lasting around 45 minutes, the session examines how a network with individual property heating and hot water systems might be constructed to take advantage of the latest TIU technology. Delivered by members of RWC UK’s technical and sales teams, the seminar explains the features and benefits of such systems and provides building professionals with advice on key considerations and requirements for specification.

David Craven, Key Account Director at RWC UK, explains: “The specification of TIUs is becoming more popular, especially in the design of multiple-occupancy buildings where their use brings significant benefits. For example, installing TIUs reduces material costs and maintenance thanks to the absence of copper pipework and flues. They also remove the need to conform to Gas Safe or FGAS regulations in each dwelling.

“This is exactly what our new CPD aims to highlight; the simplicity and flexibility of community heating networks and TIUs. The session is also free of charge and for the convenience of our customers, we’ll visit their premises to deliver the presentation.”

In 2015, RWC UK introduced the first major brand of UK designed and manufactured Thermal Interface Units to the market with its Radiance® range, made at the company’s head office in Evesham, Worcestershire. Just this year, the range was recognised by two industry awards, being shortlisted in the H&V News Awards in the Innovative Products category, and receiving the Highly Commended in the Innovative Product of the Year category of the Northern Ireland Plumbing and Heating Awards.
