Building Information Modelling Workshop

April 11, 2011

Insights into the future of building design, construction and management

BIM is revolutionizing the way project stakeholders use digital data created by different participants throughout a building’s life-cycle. This new process is quickly becoming recognized for the value it brings to any project.

Register now to learn and discuss the merits, challenges, and needs of Building Information Modeling (BIM) at this informative and interactive BIM Workshop hosted Red River College, the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council, and the National Research Council of Canada’s Institute for Research in Construction on May 5, 2011.
Network with Canadian knowledge leaders and users of BIM who will be presenting on hot-button BIM issues.  Participate, ask questions, and voice your views in an open town-hall session that follows the expert presentations. See the Programme Schedule for more details.
This one-day workshop will benefit professionals in the construction industry who are considering BIM implementation, as well those who are already using BIM and would like to expand their knowledge to bring even more value to their projects, partners, and clients.
This event is Officially Supported by the Canadian Construction Association, the Construction Association of Rural Manitoba, Architectural and Building Technologists Association of Manitoba, the Winnipeg Construction Association, and the Mechanical Contractors Association of Manitoba.

About BIM
Building Information Modeling (BIM) is the process of generating and managing digital data about a facility data during its life-cycle. The process produces the Building Information Model (also abbreviated as BIM) which covers three-dimensional geometry, spatial relationships, geographic information and component properties for the design, construction and operation of a building. BIM serves as a sharable repository where information is linked and over time encompasses everything about the facility.
Building Information Models are created primarily by architects and engineers for design and analysis. But why stop there? BIM can be a source of key information for many activities during the life-cycle of the facility. Updating the model with commissioned data, and linking it with operation and maintenance information, can help with the facility management process, optimize energy performance, support emergency preparedness and much more.
BIM is not just one model, technology or standard. It is about the collection and digital embodiment of data throughout the entire life-cycle of a facility with emphasis on integration and interoperability of the data and its usage.
