The Living Model – Coming to a Western Canadian City Near You!

During the week of March 14th – 19th IMAGINiT and Autodesk will be hosting four live events in 4 Western Canadian cities, Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary and Saskatoon. These events are meant to be informative, as well as a great chance to meet and network with people in both the AEC and Manufacturing industries in these cities.

I have the great pleasure to be part of the team working on the AEC side of the event, and to present on “The Living Model” (more on the Manufacturing part later).

If you have not sign up yet for the CanBIM Regional Session in Vancouver this week, what are you waiting for!

The event takes place this week, February 16th and 17th in Vancouver, BC at the Pinnacle Hotel Vancouver Harbourfront.

This CanBIM session focuses on what’s “Beyond BIM”, and has a full slate of speakers on Wednesday (17th) that wraps up with a closing reception. The event kicks off on Tuesday with a tour of the Vancouver Science World, and ends with a welcome event back at the Pinnacle Hotel Vancouver Harbourfront.

If you follow my blog you will notice a few familiar names on the speaker list in the agenda. There is The BIM Jedi (Scott Chatterton) giving the opening address. Next is the BIM Freak (Laura Smith) who is a panellist in the round table discussion about the “Challenges in BIM Production“. Lastly the BIMsider (Carl Storms)…..yup me, has also been asked to speak, and will be talking about taking your workflow mobile.

There is time and space to register and join in the conversation.

cBIMc Event – Jan. 27th – Roadmap to Lifecycle BIM in Canada / BIM at SAIT Discussion

If you are in or around Calgary on Wednesday Jan. 27th you should check out the FREE cBIMc event from 6 – 8 pm.

Roadmap to Lifecycle BIM in Canada

erik

Erik Poirier will present buildingSMART Canada’s published Roadmap to Lifecycle Building Information Modeling in the Canadian AECOO Community. This roadmap is a call to action for industry stakeholders from across Canada to engage and propel the transition to open BIM-based collaborative project delivery in an attempt to improve the performance and value generated by the industry. This presentation will discuss the roadmap and its implication for industry stakeholders. It will also discuss how individuals can get involved in buildingSMART Canada and participate in this collective effort to transform our industry.


Opportunities to expand BIM education at SAIT Polytechnic

Learn what SAIT are already doing (within the multiple programs at School of Construction) and participate in a discussion about what industry feels is needed from academia.

CASE STUDY: Brookfield Place Calgary
Presented by Dialog, Entuitive and EllisDon

This BIM case study features the tallest building in western Canada, the Brookfield Place Calgary project. The presentation will highlight some unique features of the project, as well as how the team was able to both share and leverage data input by other parties using BIM. The Design Team used BIM tools and processes to design and collaborate during the design phase. Currently, the construction team uses VDC for planning and coordination as construction is ongoing. The design team and construction team are collaborating to ensure the information required to carry out the work is updated and provided when requested. The Construction Manager and Sub-trades are coordinating and sequencing work throughout the project. This BIM presentation will be presented collaboratively between DIALOG, Entuitive and EllisDon

Remember when we all called it AEC….

This is a re-post of a Blog I did for work, which is posted on the IMAGINiT Building Solutions Blog here.

If you work in the Architecture, Engineering and Construction industry then you are very familiar with the acronym “AEC” which stands for Architecture, Engineering and Construction. However those simple days of just one simple acronym seem to have passed us by. Now that we are living in a BIM world and collaboration is on everyone’s mind there have been some new acronyms going around that are trying to be more inclusive. I think the idea is that with BIM and the ability to have models be useful beyond just construction and continues being used for facilities management (or building operations) that “AEC” was not enough to get the point across anymore.
