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