Vancouver Convention Center Expansion Project

Project Description

As one of Dowco's recent BIM projects, the Vancouver Convention Centre is now one of Canada's largest convention centres. Working on the west building, Dowco established several processes that improved the workflow between the trades such as interchanging models between the Structural Engineer and our steel detailing department including a virtual shop drawing checking process that involved the Contractor, Engineer, Architect and Fabricator. Dowco also used BIM to track RFIs while providing visual representations to the owner.

The west building was certified LEED Platinum by the Canada Green Building Council in 2010.
