Partners

The Canada Masonry Design Centre (CMDC) and the Canadian Concrete Masonry Producers Association (CCMPA) formed a partnership to develop a new software program, Masonry Analysis Structural Systems (MASS™).

Canada Masonry Design Centre

The Canada Masonry Design Centre (CMDC) is committed to providing masonry contractors and designers in Canada with tools and resources to facilitate the proper design and construction of masonry structures. The CMDC provides technical assistance to designers and to a select group of masonry contractors who have joined together and accepted the responsibility of leading the masonry industry forward through their investment in the Canada Masonry Design Centre.

This program was developed using the similar design methods and rationale taught in our courses and found in our textbook.  It provides quick, effective designs but also acts as a teaching aid for modern masonry design through the detailed intermediate data, dynamic equation display and cross-references with CSA Standards. 

CMDC is proud to provide technical support to designers using a registered copy of the software.
