Services // BIM/CIM

As a founding member of the United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE)/Industry BIM and CIM Consortia (UIBCC) established in 2006, Mason & Hanger is an important contributor to the organization responsible for the Advanced Modeling (BIM, CIM, GIS, and CAD technologies) requirements on USACE Projects per USACE Engineering and Construction Bulleting (ECB) 2016-3 which replaced ECB 2013-18 BIM Requirements on USACE Projects.

BIM
We utilizes an array of Autodesk products - Revit and AutoCAD-based software for architectural and MEP design, as well as Autodesk Navisworks Manage for clash detection, project visualization and construction studies. 

BIM is not just about the model though, it is about the information in the model and the management of that information throughout the building's life. At Mason & Hanger there is an understanding of what that means in terms of facility data, so we are working to make sure our .ifc files meet owner expectation at the level of detail for which we are contracted. COBie reports have been part of our deliverable for multiple projects so we know the role that IFC plays in supporting that effort.

CIM
For Civil Information Modeling (CIM), we utilize an array of CIM products from Autodesk and Bentley. Civil 3D and AutoCAD-based software are used in our civil engineering design. In addition, Autodesk Navisworks Manage is used for clash detection, project visualization and construction studies. GEOPAK, InRoads, and MicroStation are also used for civil engineering design. Likewise, Bentley Navigator is used for clash detection, project visualization and construction studies.

CIM is not just about the model though, it is about the information in the model and the management of that information throughout the life of the site and infrastructure.  At Mason & Hanger there is an understanding of what that means in terms of infrastructure data, so we are working to make sure we meet owner expectation at the level of detail for which we are contracted.
