Come See What BIM-M Has to Offer
The masonry industry came together to form BIM-M in 2013. Their goal is to update the processes of the masonry industry so that it can operate in the BIM environment.
BIM-M is sponsored by the International Masonry Institute, Mason Contractors Association of America, International Union of Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers, National Concrete Masonry Association, The Masonry Society, and Western States Clay Products.
The last two years BIM-M has been trying to educate the masonry industry about Building Information Modeling (BIM). Creating an awareness of what BIM is. Who is using BIM and how they are using it to build projects virtually. “Build it before you build it.”
Well now that the buzz about BIM has been created it is time to illustrate what the “Deliverables” are from BIM for the mason contractor. The” I” in BIM stands for information. BIM-M wants to show you what kind of” Information” you can get from the model, how to get it from the model and how to use it to make you more productive and consequently more profitable.
Come and get a copy of the “BIM Deliverables Guide for Masonry Contractors” it is a useful resource for contractors who want to get started in the BIM environment. My presentation will hit on some of the highlights of the Deliverables Guide and share a simple interactive model with the group.
