Press Release – Collaboration Between Saval and Xinaps Empowers Fire Safety Analysis in Revit
Koen van Dijk, Marketing Coordinator at Saval B.V. regarding the inspiration for Saval Brandveiligheid Assistent™: “As a company that develops and delivers innovative solutions in the field of fire safety, we strive to keep up with the current developments. To provide the correct
interpretation of fire safety in the early design phase of a building, ensures that the model of our
building partners is as complete as possible on all levels including the coverage of fire protection
The partnership between Xinaps and Saval unites the best of software engineering and fire safety by tapping into Saval's expertise of fire safety and Xinaps' unique algorithms in Saval Brandveiligheid Assistent ™. This app analyzes and visualizes data from Revit® in a digital 3D BIM model. Autodesk Revit® software uses a 3D BIM model to facilitate cooperation between various disciplines throughout the lifecycle of the building, from the design of a building to demolition, in the architecture, engineering and construction sector.
Concerning the collaboration and development of Saval Brandveiligheid Assistent™ Frank Schuyer, CEO of Xinaps B.V. shares: “A collaboration with Saval was a logical choice for us because we could utilize the accumulated knowledge of one of the leading manufacturers in the Dutch market, which would definitely lead to the most innovative solution.”
Saval Brandveiligheid Assistent ™ will ensure that Saval customers have the right tools to analyze the required fire extinguishers in the building from the early design stage based on data from their Revit® model. This increases the level of knowledge of the BIM model and places the control of the design process in the hands of Revit® modelers.
