True North Square, a Case Study in BIM with David Thompson

  • Winnipeg Construction Association 1447 Waverley St., , Winnipeg Canada (map)

True North Square is both an innovative and iconic project which has been at the forefront of Winnipeg’s construction industry for the last five years. Join YCLM for a Lunch & Learn as we welcome back David Thompson of PCL to provide an in-depth look at how Building Information Modelling (BIM) was instrumental in the design and delivery for this project.

David will demonstrate how BIM was utilized throughout the design of the buildings, how it affected the shop drawings process and how it enabled a heightened level of designer/contractor/trade collaboration. He will also illustrate how through the BIM platform a paperless project delivery was achieved and how this technology is being integrated to provide the building owners with real time performance data.
