EllisDon Makes History as one of the first groups in Canada to Achieve buildingSMART Certification

We are excited to announce that a group of our digital project delivery team at EllisDon have achieved certification at the Foundation level with buildingSMART Canada. This is a significant achievement as EllisDon is one of the first groups in Canada to achieve this certification, with the first wave consisting of approximately 30 people.

BuildingSMART International (bSI) is a worldwide industry body that is driving the digital transformation of the built asset industry. Additionally, the program supports openBIM® training standardization, promotes international standards and best practices, and raises awareness about buildingSMART and its solutions.

Moreover, buildingSMART Canada (bSC) offers the only internationally recognized BIM competency benchmark in Canada. Those who are certified will be added to the international Online registry of certified individuals (if they want to, it is optional). Certified individuals are now allowed to display the buildingSMART badge as proof of their certification.

We are proud to share that the following ED team members have passed the exam in this round:

  • Patricia Marone Esteves Pereira
  • Julia Allard
  • Jiawei Li
  • Patrick Lalonde
  • Gregory Roberts
  • Alena Tokareva
  • Mykhailo Stratan
  • Andrew Macdonald
  • Marcellus Gotell
  • Bharat Deep
  • Vitor Melo Madruga
  • Qixing Chen

These team members were nominated for fast-track certification based on their experience, without additional training. This is a significant step in their professional development, and we are excited to see what they will achieve next as they continue their journey towards higher levels of certification.

We are thrilled to be one of the first groups in Canada to achieve buildingSMART certification, and we look forward to continuing our work with buildingSMART Canada in the future. Congratulations to all of our team members who achieved certification and thank you to buildingSMART Canada for this valuable opportunity.
