- When it is a contract requirement.
- When masonry shop or lift drawings are required.
- When we need to represent tough details in the masonry
- When it benefits us on the project. Anything that we used to do in 2D, such as shop drawings or coordination drawings are now done in 3D and converted to 2D and Isometric plans.
Blocks derive their strength from the chemical bond of cement and aggregate. The structure of a single-wythe masonry building is really the grout and rebar within the CMU "form."
Stone is the natural choice and the "original" sustainable building material.
We transfer our masonry specific knowledge to the BIM model. This includes material sizes, shapes, layout, 3D scheduling, material procurement, and shop drawing design. All the while ensuring that the model is used to reduce crew stoppages, material overages, and costs while maximizing production, simplifying layout dimensions, and utilizing the RFI process. We provide detailed drawings to our crews, foreman, General Contractor, and design team so the BIM model is leveraged to its fullest potential.
We would like you to think of us when you are developing or bidding your next masonry project. Anything that we can do to provide input in cost engineering, value engineering, or design ideas will be gladly provided. Any questions your team may have regarding scope will be gladly fielded and discussed. Please add us to your Division 4 bid list. You'll be glad you did.
Brick veneer, with its inherent air space, is the original rain screen system, providing superior performance over adhered systems.
As a company we are now at a point that we have several projects involving some level of BIM at any given time. We have learned to utilize our models to their fullest potential and have had success implementing BIM into our daily operations. Our crews know what BIM is and are familiar with the type of information the model can provide them. They are not fearing the future but welcoming it.
