Early BIM adopters such as MCAA BIM Committee Chairman Steve Shirley and his fellow committee members combined best practices and how-to information to develop a comprehensive guide. The guide will help contractors better navigate this complex issue and make more informed business decisions about spatial coordination and BIM, said MCAA. It will also serve as an educational resource for employees and for anyone interested in learning more about real-world approaches to the world of virtual construction.
Achieving MEP Spatial Coordination Through BIM – A Guide for Specialty Contractors is available now as a free download at www.mcaa.org/mepguide and www.mcerf.org. Hard copies of the guide will soon be available to MCAA members for free as a benefit of membership.
Going forward, MCAA education offerings on the subject of BIM and spatial coordination will use the guide to supplement and expand their content, including the three existing BIM courses being taught by Pete Mackenzie under MCAA’s National Education Initiative (NEI).
For more information on the guide or MCAA’s BIM courses, contact Dennis Langley at 301-869-5800 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
