BIM-M website launched

New site features benefits of BIM-M and initiative updates


The National Building Information Modeling for Masonry Initiative (BIM-M) has launched a new website outlining the benefits of building information modeling for masonry and progress on the initiative.

BIM is an acronym that stands for an object, a "building information model" and also a process for creating and using that object, "building information modeling". The BIM model provides a digital representation of the building, so that the modeling and analysis tools used by architects, engineers, constructors, managers and owners can read from and write to the same information source.

BIM-M is identifying barriers to and strategies for the full implementation of masonry materials and systems into BIM software for the design and construction industries.

The website features current news and announcements regarding the BIM-M initiative, information on BIM-M projects, articles relating to BIM-M, and additional resources.
