Where is BIM in Toronto?

Welcome to the First Annual BIM Survey by University of Toronto and Toronto BIM Community (tBIMc): “Where is BIM in Toronto?” The individual responses will be kept confidential and send directly to research partners at University of Toronto, but the aggregate results will be published by University of Toronto in an annual report, which will summarize the responses and will benchmark the results against other national and international BIM surveys.

This survey will take approximately between 8-10 minutes to complete. Your participation in this survey is very much appreciated and will both inform research priorities for the academic community and gaps that need to be addressed by local industry groups, including the Toronto BIM Community (tBIMc).

If you would like to learn more about this survey or have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact Dr. Arash Shahi at University of Toronto (arash.shahi@utoronto.ca).

The mission of Building Tall Research Centre is to cluster, highlight, and promote research related to tall buildings from multidisciplinary technical perspectives. These areas include but are not limited to building science, construction, environment, geomechanics, materials, resilience, structures, sustainability, and water resources.

From the perspective of the industry, regulatory bodies, and the community at large, the Centre provides a go-to place for designers, consultants, developers, builders, and policy makers. Community leaders, social housing groups, condominium owners, and office workers could access the latest research on retrofitting buildings or indoor air quality in high rises.

The Centre will also provide opportunities for researchers to meet, share advances in tall building research, and foster collaboration. As such, the Centre will host an annual showcase to bring together researchers in this area of interest. At that time, graduate students, faculty, and the larger community will have the opportunity to learn more about ongoing research and research opportunities.
