The easy way to specify walls, ceilings and floors

A free one-stop shop digital tool for partition specification is helping architects find and validate the right products and systems and import them directly into BIM

In association with

The Knauf Planner Suite specification platform is a design tool that offers architects reliable data, time-saving features and ease of use. 

It is available as a BIM plug-in for Revit and ArchiCAD and as a browser-based version.

The tool's guided search function reduces the time spent manually searching for products and cross-checking data by providing an overview of Knauf wall, ceiling and floor system solutions to match specific project requirements, such as fire protection or sound insulation.

Knauf Planner Suite: data validation made easy

All BIM objects in Knauf Planner Suite are based on the most recent performance data, fire and acoustic tests for example, making the time-consuming task of validating downloaded objects a thing of the past.

Planner Suite is the best tool in the industry for holding up-to-date performance data.

The data validation function has been well received by users as it guarantees data accuracy over the full BIM model lifetime.

Products and systems that have been imported into Revit or ArchiCAD in the past can be checked for data accuracy and updated to the current version with just one click.

The BIM plug-in also notifies the user if a product being used is no longer available or if the values inputted are not achievable with Knauf products and systems.

Full technical documentation can be accessed through Planner Suite, including product data sheets, Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) and stockists.

The tool also considers factors such as regional availability to ensure only products relevant for the project location are recommended - especially useful for international project planning.

Knauf Planner Suite: time-saving functions

Another popular feature is the ability to save products as favourites, enabling designers to re-use the same products across different projects. Each time the data is revalidated. This is a useful shortcut - without cutting corners.

Planner Suite also facilitates easy specification of hybrid systems, for example when a partition is tiled or wet to one side and dry to the other. In addition, it provides accurate information for follow-on design work, such as door frame dimensions.

An integrated tendering function enables easy creation of tender documents without having to manually make quantity calculations. Bills of quantities are automatically generated out of the BIM model with just one click.

For the specification of Knauf solutions from standard components to high performance systems, the Knauf Planner Suite offers an integrated solution to support all stages of the planning journey.
