Digitizing Saskatchewan's Built Environment: The Role of BIM 

Join us and discover how Building Information Modeling (BIM) is used within the local Saskatchewan community. Be part of the discussions as we look at benefits of BIM and some of its obstacles including: 


  • What are some of the advantages and disadvantages of BIM as an Owner?...Architect?...Consultant?...Builder? 

  • What are some BIM processes and workflows for all stakeholders? 

  • Does using Revit mean you are BIM-ing? 

  • What does BIM really mean for you in the industry?
