Design & Engineering Think Tank

Seeking Members

As the Think Tank initiative evolves it is expected that there will be a need to form new Think Tanks around new subject matter or process-based initiatives. A minimum of three volunteers are required to start up a CanBIM Think Tank with Board approval. If you are a CanBIM Member and you would like to participate, we encourage you to sign up through the website today!

Statement of Purpose

The Design & Engineering Think Tank is dedicated to the advocacy and adoption of BIM standards as it pertains to the role of all designers within the AECOO industries.

Goals

  • Implement Agile Project Management ideals to enable smaller groups to work in a flexible and interactive fashion on a manageable deliverable
  • Release updated BIM Protocols as point releases. E.g.: v2.1, v2.2. These point releases would provide an update to specific topics within the BIM Protocol to address changing industry conditions
  • Issue supporting documents including White Papers and Templates that relate directly to the BIM Protocol documents
  • Update BIM Protocol based on feedback from members
  • Develop smaller teams to meet more frequently on a flexible schedule, and thus meeting monthly to increase collaboration and communication among all stakeholders.
