Resource Highlight: MCAA’s Achieving Spatial Coordination through BIM – A Guide for Specialty Contractors

January 5, 2024

MEP contractors are constantly challenged with new rules and requirements from clients with differing understandings and expectations relative to BIM. For those new to the BIM environment, the spatial coordination process can seem overwhelming. MCAA’s Achieving Spatial Coordination through BIM – A Guide for Specialty Contractors provides guidelines to clarify the process. It’s just one of MCAA’s educational resources that are free to MCAA members as a benefit of membership.

The guide explores:

  • Spatial coordination in a BIM environment
  • BIM and spatial coordination basics
  • Building the team
  • BIM execution plans
  • Managing the process
  • Documents of record
  • Benefits of BIM beyond spatial coordination
  • Evaluating spatial coordination contract language
  • BIM technologies for an IT infrastructure

Appendices provide examples of internal deliverables, an outline for developing a BIM implementation plan, scrubbing a design-intent model, and other industry references.
