This fall, IMAGINiT experts are speaking at conferences across Canada and the United States on varying aspects of BIM.

Speakers and topics include:

John Jansen, an IMAGINiT Building Solutions Team Manager, will be speaking at BuildEx in Calgary, Alberta this fall. Attendees of John Jansen's BuildEx presentation will learn about the benefits of BIM as it relates to facilities management, fabrication, 4D phasing, lighting analysis, scanning, model manipulation, multi-discipline co-ordination and more. John will explain how to ensure that the quality of information within the model is valuable when extracted, analyzed or queried.

Ken Flanigan, a LEED AP and IMAGINiT Solutions Consultant, will be speaking at Sustainabuild in Vancouver, British Columbia in November. With a session titled 'It Ain't Easy Being Green,' Ken will show attendees how to efficiently and effectively embed sustainability information into a Building Information Model, evaluate and optimize the design, and generate reports of the data stored within the model. He will also review interoperability between different sustainability analysis tools and how they can be an integral part of the BIM environment.

Vincent Cadoret, an IMAGINiT Senior Applications Expert, will be speaking at the American Concrete Institute (ACI) Convention in Toronto, Ontario in October. He will review what BIM is, how BIM changes the workflow and even the internal culture of both design and construction firms.
