Help Shape the future of Development and Building Permitting in Calgary!

BIM and Approvals: Here, There, Everywhere.

BIM executed to its fullest potential is more than a tool or digital communications device. Executed properly, it is a process and methodology supporting integrated design processes and collaborative team structures. This can – in its ultimate form – include clients and government agencies such as approving authorities.

What are Dynamaniacs and why are they coming to Edmonton and Calgary?

The Dynamaniacs of Calgary and Edmonton, or DoC & DoE for short, are Dynamo user groups that will allow people that are interested in Dynamo, at any level, a place to get together and discuss all things Dynamo.

While DoC & DoE are being called “Dynamo” user groups, the plan is to not restricted them to just Dynamo topics, but expand them over time to include related Design Technology topics like Iterative Design (ID), Generative Design (GD), Computational Design (CD), Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR), and Mixed Reality (MR) to name a few.

cBIMc Meeting – Leveraging the Cloud for BIM – Sept. 21st

If you are going to be in the Calgary area on Wednesday, September 21sth between 6:00 pm and 8:00 pm you should attend the cBIMc meeting, it’s FREE!

Presented by:Martin Neault of Dialog

A Single Source of Truth
Bringing a Large-Scale Project Together in the Cloud

With a project team spanning multiple studios nationwide as well as several international external partners, DIALOG realized a single source of truth would be a must for the success of the $1B ICE District project in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Using A360 Collaboration for Revit cloud-based worksharing environment in conjunction with IMAGINiT Clarity for task automation, they sought to eliminate the common and costly hurdles of the standard FTP-centric workflow.

Achieving alignment by way of extensive BIM execution planning and coordination in advance, full collaboration was enabled from the single source shared files. To further improve internal efficiencies, DIALOG leveraged IMAGINiT Clarity to run essential scheduled tasks in the background, minimizing interruptions for their design and production teams through each project stage.

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
