Innovation continues to be our driving force
Over 70% of our projects integrate an innovative idea or a cutting-edge technology enabling us to build better, faster and more ecoresponsibly for our clients, partners and communities.
Farzaneh, from our research and development lab, Sina, our robotics expert, Nabila, a virtual design and construction coordinator: in all, 130 people reflect each day on the future of our industry, test new technologies and deploy them on construction sites.
A spark was lit in 2012 when we became one of the first in Canada to adopt building information mod- elling (BIM), a collaborative process facilitated by digital technologies.
BIM: at the heart of the digital shift
The advent of BIM triggered the metamorphosis of our industry, boosting its productivity and alleviating the shortage of skilled workers.
For example, BIM enabled us to improve planning, identify problems on site before they arise, decrease the number of change orders, meet the highest quality standards and carry out complex projects. We saved time and money. And reduced our ecological footprint.
During the facility management and maintenance phase, BIM opens some big doors. It can provide the data our clients need to optimize their infrastructure s life cycle and the value of their investments.
Collaboration paves the way
BIM, robotics, the Internet of things and artificial intel- ligence are encouraging collaboration in the sector so that these cutting-edge tools can reach their full potential. They are our priorities.
We want to continue to steer this digital shift, to pro- mote exchanges with our ecosystem and to partner with other innovative companies to stimulate our own capacity for innovation. For instance, we sit on one of Boston Dynamics consultative commit- tees, where we talk about the future of robotics in various industries.
