Jim has always been drawn to technology. He says it’s a way to help people be better at what they do. Jim leverages technology as a way to engage with others and help them find the best way to solve problems. BIM has fundamentally changed the way people work and communicate, pushing teams closer together and allowing them to collaborate earlier in the project life cycle.
BIM technologies benefit Stantec as a company of design professionals, but sometimes the greatest benefits are seen in more simple ways – the way a client is able to see their new project in three-dimensions early in the design process for example. BIM allows communities to gain a sense of how a project will look and feel long before a shovel is put to the ground. These benefits increase the confidence our clients have in us as designers, and can help pave the way for a smooth and efficient design and construction process.
