New Guide Helps MEP Contractors Navigate BIM

MCAA BIM guideThe Mechanical Contractors Association of America (MCAA) has launched a new guide to help MEP contractors understand how to incorporate and leverage leading edge technologies and processes into their projects’ spatial coordination efforts. Titled Achieving MEP Spatial Coordination Through BIM – A Guide for Specialty Contractors, the document was developed by a task force comprised of members from MCAA, the Sheet Metal and Air Conditioning Contractors National Association (SMACNA) and the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA), with financial underwriting from the Mechanical Contracting Education & Research Foundation (MCERF).

MCAA said the guide is designed to help contractors better navigate the complex issues of spatial coordination and BIM and make more informed business decisions. It is also intended to serve as an educational resource for their employees who must act on those decisions and for anyone interested in learning more about real-world approaches to the world of virtual construction.
