The Women in tBIMc is a sub-group of WiB global community. We are revolutionary leaders, risk takers and agents of change to share and discuss practical approaches for advancing women into BIM in the Canadian AECOO industry. We promote an atmosphere for the dissemination of knowledge from leaders, employers and programs supporting these leaders and women who aspire to be in this field and lead the industry themselves.
WiB aims to provide networking opportunities preparing women for leadership roles. Also, beyond just networking, we hope that Women in BIM leads to connections between mentors and mentees, forging key relationships leading to successful careers.
We look forward to seeing men and women joining our group and participating in this new tBIMc initiative. Signup to learn about events here
Second Annual BIM Survey
Building Tall Research Centre at University of Toronto first partnered with the Residential Construction Council of Ontario (RESCON). and Toronto BIM Community (tBIMc) in 2017 to conduct a detailed survey of BIM implementation within the Canadian architecture, engineering, construction, and facility management industries (AEC/FM). It was motivated by the lack of a consistent benchmark for BIM implementation in Canada. Starting small, the effort resulted in the 1st Annual BIM Report – 2018 for the Greater Toronto Area1.
Although, the first report focused on only one economic region of Canada, it had overwhelming support from the local industry with over 250 respondents to the survey and more than 20 in-person interviews. The success of the first survey attracted interest from national organizations, CANBIM and BuildingSMART Canada, and motivated the research team to expand the survey scope to include the entire country.
