buildingSMART Canada has revised its membership structure to allow for free membership for individuals from the Canadian AECOO community to encourage and facilitate the adoption of BIM and open standards in Canada

buildingSMART Canada has revised its membership structure and is now offering free membership to individuals wanting to get actively involved in and contribute to the movement towards a better built environment for Canada as laid out in the Roadmap to Lifecycle BIM in the Canadian Architecture, Engineering, Construction, Owners and Operations (AECOO) Community published by buildingSMART Canada in January 2015. The call to action, issued through the IBC/buildingSMART Canada Roadmap to lifecycle BIM, involves a movement that must be undertaken with the full engagement, active involvement and continual support from the Canadian AECOO community. This will be done through the creation of a national community of excellence for the built environment which builds on the beliefs and capabilities of buildingSMART Canada’s members and includes buildingSMART Canada’s new Affiliates initiative.

By joining buildingSMART Canada, individuals become part of a growing community that is implementing collaborative working best practices in Canada and around the world. Members can link up to a worldwide community of practitioners, owners and software developers that are shaping the future with BIM and participate in the development of standards, protocols and programmes through working groups centered on activities described in the Roadmap to Lifecycle BIM. They can also stay abreast of innovative practices and improved project delivery processes through the creation of a national community of excellence. Members will have access to this growing pan-Canadian support network, whose agenda is transparent and aimed at an ambitious yet achievable goal: promoting and enabling the movement towards a better built environment for Canada through the development and use of open standards for BIM.

buildingSMART Canada members are plugged into a network of leading experts from around the world to define, develop and maintain open standards to enable truly interoperable data exchange. buildingSMART Canada works in partnership with Canadian associations of architects, engineers, specification writers, contractors as well as public and private owners, government and industry to create standards, supporting programmes and tools to ensure that Canada will be at the forefront of global use of BIM.

Join our growing community and get access to the best independent knowledge that will keep your operations on the leading edge and contribute to improving Canada’s built environment. Read more here
