About this Bulletin – Building Information Modeling (BIM) & Bridges:

The ACEC-BC and BC Ministry of Transportation & Infrastructure Joint Liaison Committee (JLC) is a collaborative venue for the Ministry and ACEC-BC members to discuss, connect, and manage shared interest topics including regulation, technical practice, and procurement. The JLC agenda includes all topics of interest between the Ministry and ACEC-BC members and the JLC Bridge Sub-Committee focus on technical practice and topics of shared interest with respect to bridges.

In 2020, the JLC Bridge Sub-Committee formed a task force to evaluate opportunities for BIM in the BC bridge industry. To better understand the landscape, the task force developed the Member Bulletin: Building Information Modeling & Bridges, which collates published information including BIM objectives, practices, and considerations for implementation including a review of current use of BIM in other jurisdictions.
Following publication of this Member Bulletin, the task force will now turn their attention to the BC context with the ultimate objective of developing a roadmap for industry stakeholders to adopt high-value BIM practices.
