A new document will help contractors with Building Information Modeling (BIM).
The Mechanical Contractors Association of America (MCAA) with contribution from Canada, has undertaken a trilateral approach in publication of a document known as Achieving MEP (Mechanical Electrical Plumbing) Spatial Coordination Through BIM - A Guide for Specialty Contractors. This guide will provide huge benefits to the Canadian contractors.
The guide facilitates “MEP contractors negotiate “the most significant issue” in today’s construction industry: how to integrate and leverage innovative technologies and practices into their projects’ spatial coordination efforts.
A task force consisting of members of the MCAA, the Sheet Metal and Air Conditioning Contractors’ National Association and the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA), having financial support from the Mechanical Contracting Education & Research Foundation, have developed the 180-page document.
The MCAA team was formed with Ontario mechanical contractor Al Prowse, president of Woodbridge-based H. Griffiths Company Ltd. and the executive director of the Canada BIM Council (CanBIM).
The BIM professional can download the guide at free of cost at www.mcaa.org.
