Saskatchewan BIM Community (SaskBIM) exists to connect members of Saskatchewan’s Architectural, Engineering, Consulting, Owner, Operator (AECOO) industry that share a common interest in BIM (Building Information Modeling), Integrated Project Delivery, and Sustainable Design. SaskBIM welcomes anyone with a passion for BIM, Sustainable Design and/or Integrated Project Delivery from all AEC disciplines.

SaskBIM is comprised of the Regina BIM Community (rBIMc) and the Saskatoon BIM Community (sBIMc).  Each of the BIM communities hold meetings that include presentations from vendors, SaskBIM members, AECOO industry professionals, and an opportunity to network with other members of the Saskatchewan area AECOO community.
