Collaborative BIM software for the entire building life-cycle


ASSA ABLOY is the global leader in access solutions. It is also the leader in building information modelling (BIM) innovation, allowing it to meet the growing demand & world-wide adoption of BIM processes & standards.

Building Information Modelling, or BIM, is a building’s digital representation of its physical and functional characteristics. This 3D visualization allows for cross-disciplinary communication through the use of intelligent objects.

ASSA ABLOY provides access to product information through the use of downloadable BIM objects or files. These objects contain an unbelievable wealth of information that could affect a building through its life-cycle; from development to ongoing facility management.

ASSA ABLOY provides a number of door families and BIM files from many of its brands & regions, such as: 

Openings Studio™: BIM-enabled tools for the entire building lifecycle

In 2008, ASSA ABLOY developed a BIM software tool called Openings Studio™. Since then, this industry-leading plugin has evolved and significantly improved the process of door scheduling, visualisation and more. Users are empowered to focus on the design, installation and management of openings - all within an information-rich environment.

Openings Studio was created for architects, contractors, distributors, owners, facility owners and security consultants, enabling all to work in a highly interactive 3D Building Information Model (BIM) environment. 

Easily create “complete opening” models with doors, frames and hardware specifications. Projects ranging from educational, healthcare, government facilities and more can be easily managed. Other features include:

  • Cloud-based and secure.
  • Owners, architects and other stakeholders can seamlessly share information and collaborate. 
  • Integrate with BIM design software platforms, such as Autodesk Revit®.
  • Create “complete openings” to produce 3D doors, frames, hardware, in addition to specifications.
  • Preview openings in 3D environment, prior to final documents printing. 
  • Materials and finishes are high quality, with hardware placed at industry standards, to assist with design decisions and approvals.
  • Compare material selection and value propositions through a non-proprietary database that includes variable pricing options to guide product decisions. 
  • Access and download manufacturer catalogues, technical data sheets, wiring diagrams, templates, photo galleries and more.
