The Canada BIM Council (CanBIM) held the first ever National CanBIM Awards, recognizing excellence in Canada’s Building Information Modelling (BIM) community. CanBIM handed out awards in the following three categories: Innovation, Interoperability, and Best In BIM.
Quebec-based general contractors Pomerleau earned top honours in two of the three awards categories, taking home awards for Innovation and Best In BIM. Pomerleau demonstrated exemplary innovation for their work on Place Bell – Cultural and Sports Centre in Laval, Que., and demonstrated the Best In BIM for outstanding implementation throughout design to construction on the multifunctional amphitheatre Videotron Centre in Laval, Que.
“All nominees demonstrated great execution of BIM,” said Allan Partridge, CanBIM President. “But Pomerleau demonstrated exceptional strength in their respective award categories, as seen by our experienced evaluators. We are proud to have received so many great submissions.”
Architecture and interior design firm DIALOG, from their Calgary regional office, took home top honours in the Interoperability category for demonstrating exceptional, seamless data transfer across software platforms on the Grande Prairie Regional Hospital (Alta.) project.
Nominees and the respective award winners demonstrated a high level of excellence in their project submissions, further cementing the belief that Canada’s BIM Community is robust.
“Our independent CanBIM evaluators represent a great cross-section of the Architecture, Engineering, Construction, Owner & Operator industries,” stated Gerry Lattmann, CanBIM Executive Director. “They did a great job evaluating and selecting our outstanding nominees and winners for the inaugural CanBIM Awards.”
