Configurator creates Revit files of non-standard models
Following consultation with customers and business partners, Precision has created Revit versions of all its models. Revit files for the standard base models are available in the download area of the Precision website, along with CAD versions, and can also be found on CESABIM and SPECIFI.
However, Precision’s highly flexible product line can be configured to meet customers’ specific requirements – and the company wanted its Revit BIM files to be able to reflect this. “There are over 12,000 different standard configurations in our product range,” says Nick Williams, managing director of Precision. “Most consultants, designers and operators planning their kitchen use a variant rather than a standard product.

Precision’s new mobile carts
Precision’s new mobile banqueting carts make it easy to transport hot and cold food safely for event catering. Their 60mm, high performance insulation means that the cabinets maintain temperature for extended periods, while they are being moved from kitchen to service. All round bumper bars protect the cabinets, while the heavy duty casters and flush pull handles ensure both mobility and stability in transit.
Both cabinets have a footprint of 840mm by 915mm, and are 1740mm high. This size means they fit easily through standard doors, while offering big storage capacities: the refrigerator model (PMR 24) holds up to 24 GN1/1 65mm deep pans, the heated model (PMH 30) holds up to 30. Their extra-deep doors provide superior insulation and strength and protect the door gasket during loading of pans or shelves. (more…)
