Learn what BIM is and how it affects your company

The Mason Contractors Association of America (MCAA) will present Building Information Modeling for Masonry: Opportunities for BIM in Mason Contracting on Wednesday, July 30, 2014, at 10:00 AM CDT.

We invite all of our stakeholders, but especially mason contractors, to attend this free webinar. Contractor input is essential to the future success of BIM-M.

The Building Information Modeling for Masonry Initiative (BIM-M) has focused on a wide range of needs, from owners, to architects, to masonry suppliers. The current BIM-M Benchmark Project is focused on mason contractors and construction workflows. We will use a case study of a multi-story building project that includes interior concrete masonry walls and a complex brick veneer on metal stud backup with custom cast-stone accents to discuss:

  1. Establishment and documentation of mason contractor workflows that can take advantage of BIM
  2. BIM for the communication and clarification of masonry project requirements, with examples from cast stone shop drawings and CMU control joint placement
  3. Dimensional assessment of building frames and opportunities for BIM
  4. Masonry supply chains and opportunities for BIM
In this webinar, we will provide our observations in each of these areas – taken from our case study, and will ask for contractor comments and feedback. Please attend this most important webinar for mason contractors.

Speakers are BIM-M consultants from the School of Architecture and Building Construction at Georgia Institute of Technology including Russell Gentry, Associate Professor, a structural engineer and building materials researcher, and the BIM-M Project Manager for Georgia Tech; John Haymaker, Assistant Professor, the founder of Design Process Innovation - a company that provides advanced tools and consulting for the AEC industry, and the Project Manager for the BIM-M Benchmark project; and Bryan Lee, a Graduate Researcher on the BIM-M Benchmark project.

Mason contractors registered for Masonry Certification will receive 1.00 credits in the Bidding Practices discipline upon completion of this course.
