The Mason Contractors Association of America (MCAA) will host a webinar on BIM Coordination for Masonry on Wednesday, April 12, 2017, at 10 a.m. Central. The free online webinar is sponsored by Cad Blox LLC.

The presentation will discuss the rise of full coordination for masonry and the impact it is having on the construction process. Presenter Tom Cuneio will discuss new solutions in the market for architects and engineers to design with masonry coordination in mind. We will also conduct a few case studies on how masonry coordination actually works. We will demonstrate full underslab coordination, structural bond beam clash detection, bond layout optimization and other benefits.

Coordination for masonry can be a contractual obligation or a voluntary service introduced by the contractor, but either way, all contractors should be aware of this emerging technology.
