IMAGINiT Technologies Partners with CanBIM Toronto to host the Owners Symposium

Experts Share Insights on How BIM Helped to Digitize Facilities Management and Adapt to a 3D World

IMAGINiT Technologies brings together three leading experts who will share how they have successfully transformed their 2D approach to a Building Information Model (BIM) solution that integrates facilities management (FM) and reality capture. Hear what they have to say at the CanBIM Owners Symposium being held at the Hyatt Regency in Toronto, ON on September 25, 2019. IMAGINiT, an Autodesk Platinum Partner in Canada, will exhibit their full range of building, reality capture and facility management services and software at booth #19 in the CanBIM Toronto exhibit hall on September 26.

“There’s no substitute for hearing the inside stories of how your peers conquered their BIM, FM and reality capture challenges and evolved from 2D to a BIM approach,” says Peter Costanzo, director of the Facilities Management team at IMAGINiT Technologies. “This exclusive symposium highlights three unique paths to success while also fostering a forum for the interchange of wisdom, ideas and facilities management best practices.”

The Owners Symposium hosted by CanBIM 2019 Toronto, in collaboration with IMAGINiT Technologies, is designed to prepare owners and facility managers for the future as more building data becomes available digitally. Speakers include FM thought leaders from The Ohio State University, George Brown College and Leica Geosystems. Sessions include:

  • A BIM Roadmap for Owners – Joe Porostosky, director of facilities information and technology services at The Ohio State University, will outline the university’s transition from AutoCAD based floor plans to Revit based building models. Joe will discuss the ‘why’ of the conversion, along with the outcomes and the evolution of their standards and processes.
  • Case Studies of BIM in FM – Petro Karanxha, professor at George Brown College, will discuss the application of Building Information Modeling in Facilities Management and explore the transfer of data from BIM Models to facilities management systems.
  • Latest Trends in BIM Tools for Reality Capture – Mike Harvey, reality capture senior product manager at Leica Geosystems, will provide an overview of current reality capture hardware and software, highlight trends and discuss how owners and facility managers can utilize reality capture data to manage buildings better.
