The AMCA is proud to announce that on 1 May 2012 a memorandum of understanding was signed with the National Fire Industry Association (NFIA). The NFIA is the official trade association representing contracting companies involved with the design, installation, service and maintenance of essential service systems such as fire sprinklers, fire alarms, extinguishers, passive fire and equipment suppliers.
The AMCA and NFIA will seek to establish a high level relationship that will establish a fire equipment models workgroup to meet the following deliverables:
- a peer reviewed technical schedule;
- a generic BIM model for the fire equipment component, to be used as the generic model within the BIM-MEPAUSpackages releases; and
- a generic CAD model for incorporation into the BIM-MEPAUS Add-in release.
