National Concrete Masonry Association, David Biggs – BIM-M Initiative

The Building Information Modeling for Masonry (BIM-M) Initiative has entered Phase III of the four phases originally envisioned when we created the BIM-M Roadmap [1, 2]. Phase I and II of the initiative were funded by the BIM-M associations representing material supply, building professionals, contractors and labor, with administrative oversight and technical leadership from the Pankow Foundation. At this time the initiative is beginning to implement the workflows, data models and standards developed during the first two phases. The Pankow Foundation has agreed to support the technical oversight for the commercialization and standardization of the Masonry Unit Database or “MUD” as it will be noted in this document.
