tBIMc and George Brown College signed MOU

We are excited to announce the new relationship between the Toronto BIM Community and the Angelo DelZotto School of Construction Management at George Brown College through the recently signed Memorandum of Understanding.
Our common interest in Building Information Modelling (BIM) education and research, both parties wish to expand the collaborative relationship between them. In an effort to close the gap between academia and the construction industry, specifically around the implementation of Building information Modelling and all the developments and advancements at its periphery.

Goals

  • To foster an Academic-Industry partnership that can serve as a national model for advancing Canadian BIM Research and Development initiatives and successes.
  • To demonstrate how Academic – Industry partnerships can work together for mutual benefit as well as to advance the use and improve the effectiveness of BIM implementation for the Canadian, and more specifically the Toronto, construction industry.  
  • To further tBIMc’s mandate to connect the Architecture, Engineering, Construction, Owners and Operators (AECOO) through BIM.
  • To stimulate exchanges between industry and college professionals.
GBC –SCM and tBIMc see that a partnership between academia and industry is mutually beneficial and we are working on creating joint projects, workshops, seminars and like.

tBIMc and UofT Researchers Affiliates

We are very excited to announce the new affiliation between Toronto BIM Community (tBIMc) and researchers from the Department of Civil Engineering at the University of Toronto (U of T).

Our vision for this University-Industry partnership is to advance Canadian BIM Research and Development initiatives.  tBIMc industry members will now have an opportunity to share BIM implementation challenges and successes with the researchers at U of T who are able to use that insight to direct their research.

This partnership’s goal is work together to advance the use and improve the effectiveness of BIM implementation for the Canadian, and more specifically the Toronto’s construction industry.  Furthermore, tBIMc’s mandate to connect the Architecture, Engineering, Construction, Owners and Operators (AECOO) through BIM now extends to include the important research and development in the Academic sector.

This new partnership will stimulate exchanges between industry and university BIM professionals and will provide a platform for developing new talent in this area.  We are working on an exciting upcoming project, which will be launched at our next tBIMc event hosted at the University of Toronto on October 18th 2017.
