Dalhousie University selects Summit BIM to develop BIM Requirements Specifications
Dalhousie University has selected Summit BIM to design a set of BIM Requirements Specifications to support the University’s BIM goals from Procurement, through Design and Construction and on into Facilities Maintenance and Operations requirements.
“There are clear benefits to investing in a BIM process – better design, virtual coordination that allows us to resolve issues during design, the ability to prefabricate components. However, the greatest benefit to us is the opportunity to create a single source of truth about the building that will persist through its lifecycle,” said Alex Walker, Director of Projects, Dalhousie University.
“Summit BIM has demonstrable experience working with Owners like us. They bring a collaborative, problem-solving mindset to the project and distinct process to gathering and generating BIM requirements,” he continued.
“We’re pleased to kick off the project with Dalhousie University,” said Geraldine Rayner, Managing Principal, Summit BIM. “Our recent work with Carleton University and Wilfred Laurier has helped us understand the specific challenges and reporting requirements that educational institutions need their BIM specifications to meet.”
