MCAA’s Achieving Spatial Coordination Through BIM - A Guide for Specialty Contractors has been published and is now available as a free download at www.mcaa.org and at www.mcerf.org. The Guide is a joint effort among MCAA, SMACNA, and NECA with funding and administrative support provided by MCERF. MCAA’s BIM Committee and a cadre of other BIM professionals provided and vetted the content of the Guide. Their goal was to help members incorporate leading-edge technologies and processes into their project spatial coordination efforts. MCAA hopes that the Guide will enable members to make more informed business decisions about BIM and spatial coordination and that it will also serve as an educational resource for their employees who implement those decisions. Plans to provide MCAA members with hard copies of the Guide are afoot and will be announced soon. Please direct questions about the Guide to Dennis Langley at email@example.com._READ_MORE
