2017 CanBIM General Contractors Award Nominees
Bird Construction - Centre for Engineering Innovation & Entrepreneurship
The CEIE is a project within the Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering at the University of Toronto. The 18,634m2 building is an eight-storey + 2 storey below grade with a cast-in-place concrete structure and steel penthouse. The building will house facilities for students, professors, researchers and administrative staff. It contains multiple teaching spaces including a 472-seat auditorium using non-conventional seating layout for interactive learning. VDC/BIM was implemented in CEIE to mitigate the risk of potential cost overruns due to an aggressive construction schedule.
PCL - Rocky Ridge Recreation Centre
When designers for the Rocky Ridge Recreation Facility pushed the boundaries on design, it resulted in a stunning example of architecture. The challenge for PCL was to take this complex building form and physically build it. With the use of a fully integrated BIM model the team has realized success.

Pomerleau - Montréal Tower
Construction manager for this emblematic building, Pomerleau uses collaborative BIM/VDC/Lean for excellent quality and client satisfaction. The project benefits from optimized positioning of the tallest crane in Canada, design and fabrication of special construction equipment, multidisciplinary coordination of complex geometry MEP systems, precise simulation of curtain wall installation, Lean Construction strategies.
EllisDon - York University Subway Station
The York University Subway Station Project constructed by EllisDon is located in the heart of the York University Campus, crossing diagonally under Ian Macdonald Boulevard. The main entrance consists of two entry wings under an iconic compound curved roof system capped with cool (light reflective) standing seam aluminum panels. Below this iconic entryway is yet another compound curved surface called the Light Scoop, this time formed from tons of structural concrete. Further in beyond these difficult to visualize (let alone build) systems are complex structural V-Columns and platform spanning artwork installations to name just a few of this projects many facets.
