Benefits

of becoming a member

The built environment is becoming more complex and connected. In the age of Virtual Design and Construction, the Internet of Things and Machine Learning, the breadth of required knowledge and resources is ever-growing. The infrastructure and technology sectors are becoming increasingly integrated, but there is a lack of mutual communication and understanding. A close relationship between the two industries, along with government cooperation, offers profound benefits to the National Capital Region.

dbNCR’s mission is to build and facilitate the connections needed to create a smarter National Capital Region.

We are up-to-date

The construction industry is becoming more and more complex and connected. Our organization is strategically positioned in the region and the country. In the era where construction and virtual reality correlate, internet and artificial intelligence, we feel the need to learn more.

Digital building

Vision, guidance, and facilitation is offered at the National level in Canada. However, no organization has yet united the construction community in the nation’s capital Region. The goal of this merger is to transform the visions, innovations, challenges, and opportunities of each to benefit and offer collective progress to the industry.

Our mission

Contribute to building relationships and facilitating the exchange of stakeholders in the field. We want to bring together the right groups to build a better National Capital Region.

Wide audience

From in-person seminars, presentations, and discussions, to online forums and newsletters, we reach a broad audience of forwarding thinkers.

What we’re discussing

Enjoy a teaser of our daily discussions

Digital construction

The government of Canada intends to adopt a digital transformation strategy for the construction sector. Building with digital is one of the topics of the hour. The digital era affects us on a daily basis, hence its magnitude in our discussions.

BIM

The use of BIM for infrastructure projects remains at the top of Ontario's priorities. BIM is a 3D design and modeling process that enhances coordination among team members and reduces the design error rate.

Mandate

We are discussing on a regular basis the existing mandate of the province of Quebec for infrastructure projects. During our discussions, we ensure that we are up to date with construction projects in Quebec. The ability to be aware of industry news is crucial.

Innovation budget

The Government of Canada's innovation Budget: the amount of money provided by our government for innovation in construction is a generous amount. We cover the importance of making smart decisions to value this investment.

Invest Ottawa

Invest Ottawa has a key role in the fostering of innovation in the Capital. Invest Ottawa's mission is to make Ottawa the ideal place in Canada to start and grow a business. They help companies with an idea, operational or already established.

Smart City Strategy

The City of Ottawa Smart City Strategy: it sets the stage for making Ottawa a more connected, innovative and prosperous city than it is today. We analyze ideas and propose our ideas to contribute to this project.

Modeling project

The modeling project in the Ottawa area, organized by the National Capital Commission, is at the heart of our discussions. Building data modeling is growing steadily, and we are discussing its presence in the city of Ottawa.

As an affiliate of buildingSMART Canada, we embrace an open approach to interoperability and collaboration. This open philosophy allows the best ideas to naturally emerge and be tested by discussion and collaboration between multiple perspectives. Our free personal membership allows anyone in our region to add their unique perspective to the discussion and creates an inclusive environment.
