    Just as we, as kids, loved the thrill of muddy puddles, designers find that same feeling of exhilaration when choosing first the colors, blends, textures, unit size, bond as well as the finish and special shapes or articulation of the aesthetic masonry wall. So much more than simply indicating the solid veneer just to be masonry. FUN. MUD is the software tool that allows your choices to be depicted for the walls.

    Building Information Modeling for Masonry's newest tool launches. The Masonry Unit Database allows architects to design using this simple tool. It is easy to make selections and visualize the completed wall. Then, effortlessly, make it entirely different. Add a brick blend or a second color. Or not. Then show this digital rendering to clients for approval. What a great opportunity to “build it (to see it) before you build it”.

    BIM-M’s Newest Tool Launches The Building Information Modeling for Masonry initiative, BIM‐M, formed in 2012 is to promote the efficient use of masonry in the design and construction industry. Digital tools for the next

    generation of masonry systems will enable design development and construction workflows to spread the adoption of BIM‐ enabled software in the masonry industry.

    BIM is expanding quickly within the construction industry worldwide. Development of BIM tools for masonry to support the use of brick, CMU and stone as construction materials is underway to facilitate masonry’s

    use more accurately in BIM models. As it becomes easier and more fun to design masonry, we can expect to see greater variety in this aesthetic and greater efficiency in both its design and construction workflows.

    As identified in the BIM‐M best practices guide1, current BIM models consider the masonry portions of the building as a solid block of material with defined thickness, but containing no information on unit geometry. To improve these models, BIM‐M is developing objects that provide digital representations of the masonry units and walls within the overall building model, so that common modeling and analysis tools used by architects, engineers, constructors, managers and owners can read and write masonry information along with information on other building systems.

    Data Access BIM‐M is working to create platforms where masonry unit models can be housed in electronic repositories in a form that facilitates communication between design and construction disciplines without a loss of

    information. The Masonry Unit Database, MUD, is a repository for industry‐standard masonry units. Version 1 of the database is available through the web portal mudb.org Figure 1.

    STRUCTURAL MASONRY Structural brick, block and

    components for applications that require strength, flexibility and

    dependability. Structural units are the foundation, literally and figuratively, for just about every building project in

    the last century. Choose from many different structural systems and find

    the right solution for your project here.

    ANCHORED VENEERS Anchored systems are used to provide the classic aesthetics and durability of masonry in applications where other structural systems are used. Masonry veneers protect structural materials

    that would otherwise be degraded from exposure to the elements. Anchored

    veneers are attached to structural walls in many ways such as steel shelves

    and suspensions

    ADHERED SYSTEMS Adhered systems are made up of

    modular units which are designed to be lightweight. These systems are often

    used in conjunction with other materials and are held to their host

    surface with mastic or mortar. COMING SOON!
