Discover Fisher & Paykel’s Trade Resources
Fisher & Paykel’s next generation Trade Resources provide designers, architects and builders with a complete set of tools to help specify the right appliances and design the ideal kitchen.
Purposefully created for all appliance categories, the new and improved content include high resolution models for real time rendering, parametric design in BIM and sophisticated scheduling, making it easier for designers and architects to document and design, as well as builders and developers to quickly create schedules and identify clashes.
Fisher & Paykel worked closely with leading BIM-focused architecture practices Warren & Mahoney and Archier to develop the technical content and ensure the Revit and ArchiCAD files were optimised and specifically developed for the trade. By deeply understanding how kitchen designers, cabinetmakers and builders work and scoping the information they require at various stages in the design and build process, Fisher & Paykel have created and delivered content to make their work easier and faster.
With three detail settings from coarse to fine, the Revit files provide a new level of dimensional information that is unique to Fisher & Paykel. The coarse level allows clearances to be mocked out, so users can instantly identify clashes or impediments. It also includes service points, such as gas and plumbing, to see where the connections link up. Other intuitive details that simplify kitchen and laundry design include the automatic placement of a cooktop at bench height, rather than at ground level where it needs to be moved.
“By working with designers and architects, we have developed a deep understanding of the information and level of detail they require throughout the design and construction of their projects. Our next generation Trade Resources provides extensive content that allows designers to plan, craft and perfect the small details around our products,” says Simone Stephens, Chief Designer at Fisher & Paykel.
Users will also find documentation and downloads across the entire design and construction process, including detailed datasheets, hinge articulation files and alternative installation files, giving designers the tools for true design freedom.
