3 Design, Delivery & Technology Innovations for Masonry

BIM-M Keeps Masonry at Your Fingertips


BIM for Masonry (BIM-M) brings masonry materials and systems to popular BIM software, making it easier for architects, engineers, and BIM users to incorporate masonry into their designs. Watch our short video to see the possibilities in action and download BIM-M plugins.

Masonry Prefab Options 


As demands increase for modular, offsite or prefabricated members and elements, the masonry industry is providing solutions with a variety of options for panels, lintels, stairs/shafts, and entire walls. View our prefab slide deck for inspiration.

MULE Makes Block Feel Weightless


The MULE (Material Unit Lift Enhancer) is a lift assist device designed for handling and placing material weighing up to 135 pounds on a construction site. The MULE allows materials like concrete block to feel weightless, helping to reduce wear and tear on craftworkers and increase productivity.
