buildingSmartCanada 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 bSC in January 2015.
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.
Memberships can be obtained here.
