BuildingSMART Canada Releases Roadmap Video

The Canadian chapter (bSC) of buildingSMART International (bSI), a council of the Institute for BIM in Canada (IBC), firmly believes that Canadian Architecture, Engineering, Construction, Owners and Operations (AECOO) community needs to improve its performance and contribute more effectively to the societal, environmental and economic development of Canada.   

This transformation should be supported by more collaborative approaches to project delivery based on building information modeling (BIM) tools, technologies and processes that are aligned with other similar initiatives currently under way around the globe. In light of this, bSC has developed a roadmap to prompt, guide and sustain this transformation.
