AECO Innovation Lab has launched the Canadian Construction Technology Survey 2021 in collaboration with buildingSMART Canada and researchers from L’École de technologie supérieure Montréal, University of British Columbia, and University of Waterloo.
The survey features 48 questions that investigate the use of BIM and technology, commonly held beliefs, benefits and barriers of technology, application and need of standards and resources, and the future of technology in our industry.
The Canadian architecture, engineering, construction, owners, operators and other stakeholders within this industry are generalized as lagging behind its international counterparts when it comes to the adoption of new technologies and processes. Understanding the uptake and beliefs surrounding these technologies is critical for their adoption in Canada. The survey aims to capture the state of BIM and other transformative technologies within the Canadian industry and provide a benchmark for their implementation in Canada.
“The goal of the Canadian Construction Technology survey is to provide a benchmark for technology adoption in Canada,” said Arash Shahi, CEO of AECO Innovation Lab. “We know that many organizations are adopting BIM and other technology to improve productivity, but government support at the municipal, provincial, and federal levels have been missing or substantially lagging at best. In a spirit of collaboration we want the data gathered through this survey to inform decisions and enable academia, industry and government to work together to maximize innovation and increase the uptake and value of technology adoption across the AEC sector and affiliated government organizations.”
Taking part in the survey will allow for a greater understanding of where the industry is today to help shape the future of the Canadian construction industry.
