VIDEO: Ken Flannigan at Sustainabuild Vancouver 2012

Ken Flannigan, the Solutions Consultant for IMAGINiT Technologiies, delivered a talk at Sustainabuild Vancouver 2012 entitled "It Ain't Easy Being Green," all about the role of BIM in sustainable building.

Flannigan talked to the Journal of Commerce about the new capabilities of BIM software, such as taking real time data into models and modeling around weather and other variables that previously were not accessible to designers and engineers.

He also introduced the concept of “virtual construction,” which he said is gaining traction amongst U.S. contractors. BIM has also been adopted in Canada, he said, but it grew outwards from academia to industry, wheras in the United States the opposite phenomenon occurred.
