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 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.
