ROCKVILLE, Md. - The Mechanical Contractors Association of America (MCAA) has announced its latest building information modeling (BIM) course for mechanical contractors. According to MCAA, the course, BIM Process & Technology Implementation for Mechanical Contractors, has been developed to provide a practical, “how-to” look at the steps involved in implementing BIM processes and technologies, both on projects and within mechanical contracting firms.

The day-long course will be held Tuesday, Oct. 18, 2011 in Baltimore. MCAA said participants will be introduced to different processes, theories, and concepts that other companies have successfully used to adopt and implement BIM in their companies.

David Morris, director of virtual construction for EMCOR, is the lead instructor. He has over 30 years of experience performing and directing all phases of piping and mechanical systems. His current duties include improving BIM processes and sharing best detailing and virtual design practices across the 80 EMCOR Group companies.

MCAA noted that BIM Process & Technology Implementation for Mechanical Contractors is appropriate for any mechanical contracting professional who is or should be involved in establishing and executing the BIM process, facilitating its adoption, and achieving its integration at either the single project level or at a corporate level executing multiple BIM projects simultaneously.

It is assumed that all participants will have had significant exposure to BIM tools, mechanics, theory, and processes (such as through attendance of MCAA’s introductory BIM for Mechanical Contractors and BIM Technology for Mechanical Contractors courses) and want to learn best practices to implement it into construction projects. BIM Process & Technology Implementation for Mechanical Contractors relies on a highly participatory learning environment including activities, classroom discussions, and instructor-led discussions.

Technical Sales International (TSI) has signed on as the event’s sponsor.
