“As part of fulfilling the IBC/ buildingSMART Canada mission to foster BIM in Canada, this one-day event will provide valuable information for all construction project stakeholders, and will give some great insight into how to adopt BIM in their own environment,” said Bob Hildenbrandt, current vice-chair of the Institute for BIM in Canada. “There are a number of countries that operate in a fully BIM oriented environment, and their lessons learned will provide great insight to all project stakeholders.”
Panelists and speakers will represent a wide range of BIM users, including owner representatives from the international community, and particularly where BIM is already being mandated as part of certain construction projects. As well, the symposium will showcase the longer-term benefits of BIM, including operations and facilities management after construction.
In addition to country presentations and solutions for implementation, the BIM Worldwide symposium will provide great networking opportunities. Participants and exhibitors alike will have time to network and discuss the use of BIM in their own companies.
