Why Use Shenton Group BIM Models?

Shenton Group produces a diverse range of Generators and CHP units that provide electricity and or hot water to an array of clients and sectors across the UK.

As we have seen in the past, relying solely on conventional methods such as the National grid poses threats of power loss. Shenton Group provides alternative on-site power continuity solutions to ensure you stay connected. 

Shenton Group has an extensive portfolio of unit sizes range from; 7kw to 2300kw for CHP’s and 20KVA to 3200kVA for Generators. Helping you every step of the way is our technical team! We have a dedicated design department that creates quality BIM models and BIM families to enable your projects to run efficiently and to ensure you get the correct solution for your needs. 

World-class Design Creating Efficiencies For Space Planning

At Shenton Group, we are renowned for delivering technical solutions and efficiencies at a whole new level, from concept to completion.

As technology has evolved, Shenton Group has taken strategic steps to keep at the forefront of technological advancements, in the use of Computer-aided design (CAD) and Building information modelling (BIM), making Shenton Group the go-to company when it comes to Revit downloads of combined heat and power (CHP) and Generator units & accessories.

From our drawings, we have produced Revit Generator and CHP BIM models that you can incorporate into your RVT central models for space planning.

Shenton Group Generators consists of an engine, alternator, and cooling system, with the CHP units having an additional heat exchange system, all housed within a canopy for easy installation.  

The CHP models produced include: 

  • Ducting connections for the inlet
  • Outlet of the circulatory cooling air for the system
  • Connection for the Gas input
  • Primary and secondary flanges for the heat exchange
  • flue flange connection

Including the items above in our BIM families allows you to add other families to them easily.

CHP buffer vessels produced for your Revit models

The heat that is produced by the CHP is a by-product of the power generated; it is used to generate hot water via the heat exchangers within the unit, this hot water may be used for heating or domestic hot water.

When the hot water created by the unit is not required immediately, it can be stored in a buffer vessel to be used at a later date.

The buffer vessel(s) which we physically provide to clients if required, can also be used in your Revit models, designed by Shenton Group as a Revit family to suit your requirements.

Get The Competitive Edge On Projects

Shenton Group BIM objects and Revit files enable BIM managers to evaluate floor space and height requirements, to show consultants and other contractors 3D views of exactly how the equipment is installed, with accurate machine data. So, the advantages of using Shenton Group models is that it gives you a competitive edge from design to completion of a project. 

Installers are able to view in 3D, using Revit, Navisworks Manager or Navisworks Freedom the layout and pipe runs, how and where electrical cable trays are to be installed, and if there will be any issues on-site during the installation even before the building work begins, saving contractors time and money from the start.
