Institute for Building Information Modeling in Canada

OTTAWA, December 9, 2010 On August 11th and November 30, 2010 in Ottawa, a number of organizations joined forces to create a new entity called: The Institute for Building Information Modeling in Canada (IBC). The mission of this new entity is To lead and facilitate the coordinated use of BIM in the design, construction and management of the Canadian built environment .

The founding partner organizations represent specific industry sectors that have a keen interest in seeing BIM implemented in a way and at a pace that enables the primary stakeholders to understand their roles and responsibilities and to assess their capacity to participate in this process.

These partners have identified a number of priorities that include an awareness program, a practice manual, a bibliography of useful resources, and a full environmental scan/assessment on the use of BIM in Canada and internationally.

Founding partners include the Association of Consulting Engineering Companies (ACEC), the Canadian Construction Association (CCA), Construction Specifications Canada (CSC), Defence Construction Canada (DCC), the National Research Council (NRC), and the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada (RAIC).
