This project is sponsored by the National Concrete Masonry Association (NMCA); Jeff Elder – Western States Clay Products Association and Interstate Brick; David Biggs – BIM-M Initiative

This first Phase II proposal focuses on the development and prototyping of an electronic data model for masonry units. In this project, we will work with the initiative’s Material Supply Working Group to develop requirements for digital representation of masonry units. The project is denoted as the Masonry Unit Database or MUD. The goal is to develop a data model to capture all of the geometric and non-geometric information needed to select, specify and purchase masonry units.
