Building Information Modeling (BIM) is changing the way projects are constructed. Whether you are a prime contractor using BIM across an entire project or a subcontractor impacted by a specific BIM implementation, this emerging practice requires new mindsets and technological know-how in order to achieve significant improvements in efficiency and cost control.
 
To help contractors develop the knowledge needed to best benefit from the use of BIM, Master Builders of Iowa is offering the Associated General Contractors of America Building Information Modeling (BIM) Education Program. The BIM Education Program is made up of the following 4 units that can be taken in its entirety or as individual units (all classes will be held in Ankeny, IA):

Have you ever thought about the basic purpose of a resolution? In its simplest form, the intent of a resolution is always based in a commitment to change something. We generally understand that for any positive change to take place, it needs to be intentional in nature. Rarely, if ever, will you or your business float into a successful future without knowing how you got there.   >>>Read More 
 

As an industry, we are constantly looking for ways to complete projects faster, more economically, and safely, all while keeping our eye on the pulse of technology and the latest trends. Those in the commercial construction industry understand that as chaotic as this all sounds, it is necessary to complete the projects being built and designed every day!

As part of our 2018 Annual Winter Conference scheduled for February 27 & 28, MBI has scheduled two full days of seminars covering many relevant topics for commercial construction, which will be delivered by some of the best and brightest minds in the industry.  >>>Read More
