MAPEI has retooled its U.S. website to meet the needs of contractors and architects. The company has added information on green initiatives, including a tutorial for understanding the components of the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) building rating and certification system.

The Building Information Modeling (BIM) system is being used more frequently by architects in designing buildings and by contractors in bidding for projects from those designs. MAPEI’s “Tools for Architects” links to ARCAT and other systems where complete MAPEI systems can be located in BIM format to add to designs. In addition, new non-proprietary CAD drawings and specifications following the TCNA 2011 Handbook for Ceramic, Glass and Stone Tile Installations have been placed in this section of the website.

“MAPEI products play an important role in flooring installations and concrete restoration,” said Steven Day, manager of Operational Marketing for MAPEI. “We are always working to make our products easier for the construction community to specify and use, and we feel that our new U.S. website features will put those benefits at their fingertips.”
