"BIM is rapidly becoming the way architectural design gets done," says Alice Dickerson, Director of Sales and Marketing for Vitro America. "The three-dimensional, detailed product models allow building professionals to quickly specify our products in their buildings and to share common data among all of the players. Most design professionals are familiar with ARCAT for finding specification data and other information to make informed product selections, so we thought it would be an especially effective platform for placing our BIM models."

Vitro America provides the building community with a number of tools and services to make their jobs of designing, specifying and installing glass and related products simpler. For more information, please visit www.vitroamerica.com .
