Pankow Foundation Partners with BIM for Masonry Initiative

The Building Information Modeling Initiative for Masonry (BIM-M) says the Charles Pankow Foundation (CPF) is now a strategic partner of the initiative to develop standards for masonry in building information modeling (BIM). CPF will represent the initiative as its contracting entity for all university contracts.

CPF was established in 2002 by Charles J. Pankow, a pioneer in the construction industry. It was Pankow's lifelong passion to lead and inspire new and better ways to build. He intended that this Foundation, drive market-driven innovations in the building industry. The Foundation is a private, independent, non-profit, public benefit, philanthropic foundation. The Foundation exists to provide the AEC industry with a better way to design and build.

The BIM-M initiative is comprised of a large number of masonry interests and organizations in the United States and Canada working together to advance the cause of masonry products, systems and installation using Building Information Modeling software.
