Your MMCA membership includes partnership in CMDC. Some of the benefits of belonging to CMDC include:
Access to structural design engineers to help you iron out potential problems during the pre-construction stage and beyond.
Coordinated research at various Universities for the advancement in masonry design.
With participation locally by MMCA members, funding is provided to the faculty of Engineering at the U of M and other institutions across the country. This co-coordinated effort helps prevent needless duplication of funding.
Full membership with the MMCA gives benefits of CMCA, CMDC and the MMI. CMDC is an organization that helps contractors “connect” with engineers through their advice and through education of both contractors and engineers on proper masonry construction practices and designs.
It furthermore assists masonry contractors by providing services of a professional engineer in cases of disputes where contractors feel they are unfairly branded in their performance on a project (ie: Unreasonable requirements of design, etc.)
Last but not least, contractors can look for assistance from the CMDC in their efforts to convert projects to masonry from other proposed construction methods.Become a Member
