ACEC/CAMEE will conduct an educational course on building information modeling (BIM) for MEP engineers on June 20.
The one-day educational course will present industry innovators who are pioneering BIM project planning and integrated project delivery in the marketplace. The course will examine the concept of BIM and demonstrate how it is being put into practice by the collaborative professional teams. Discussion will cover state-of-the-art BIM software levels and features, useful contract models, benefits, and more.
In addition, CAMEE has two sessions on ASHRAE Technical Program for Salt Lake City. The first will be an ASHRAE Forum to discuss business and risk management issues facing MEP engineers, and the other session will be an ASHRAE Seminar entitled “Do M/Es Need to Worry About Risk Management.”

Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
