ASSA ABLOY Openings Studio Joins Your BIM Process, Allowing You To Plan For Amazing Design From Day One

NEW HAVEN, Connecticut — Efficient, cost effective and beautiful building design requires everyone to be on the same page from the first day of planning. A misstep in the early stages means costly change orders, lost project time and potential compromises to building design and security components, including those that add to the feel, beauty and character of a building. To help combat these coordination challenges, ASSA ABLOY Openings Studio™, a plugin to the world’s most common Building Information Management (BIM) software, allows you to design openings, set standards for your future facility and keep everyone in the loop for the seamless integration of Door Security Solutions.


ASSA ABLOY Openings Studio is a BIM door and hardware software tool for owners, architects, contractors and distributors. The software can supplement or replace written facility guideline standards for enforcement and coordination with the architect and specification writer during the design process. By integrating with industry standard Revit 3D software, Openings Studio allows you to plan, review and track the design of your openings throughout the planning process and avoid miscommunication and the potential for costly change orders.

“This allows you to review the design in real time, with all the stakeholders, before any potential issues arise,” said Andrew Sova, Director of BIM Technologies for ASSA ABLOY Door Security Solutions. ”We understand how hard it is to have things get specified that are not up to your standard. Openings Studio lets you establish, distribute and enforce your standard.”


Openings Studio is available in many versions that allow access for specific project stakeholders. The version for designers and architects, for example, prioritizes information specific to the decorative and design elements of Door Security Solutions. It then integrates with other versions, such as those for security contractors, distributors, specification writers, contractors and owners.


The ASSA ABLOY Openings Studio software will be showcased at AIA Conference on Architecture 2017 in booth 2311. It is on display as part of The Innovation Fleet of vehicles that give customers a hands on experience with doors and hardware.
