The Mechanical Contractors Association of Canada (MCA Canada) has announced the appointment of Al Prowse of H. Griffiths Company Ltd. to the Canada BIM Council board of directors. The council is Canada’s only self-regulating building information modeling (BIM) authority. Its mission is to provide industry stakeholders an advocacy, resource, and standards council dedicated to supporting business, professionals, educators, purchasers of construction and related services in learning and applying best practices to the evolution of BIM in a Canadian context.

BIM is the process of generating and managing building data during its lifecycle. Typically it uses three-dimensional, real-time, dynamic building modeling software to increase productivity in building design and construction.
