AECO Innovations Lab has launched the Canadian Construction Technology Survey 2021 in collaboration with buildingSMART Canada and researchers from L’École de technologie supérieure Montréal, University of British Columbia, and University of Waterloo.

The survey includes 48 questions that investigate the use of BIM and Technology, commonly held beliefs, benefits and barriers of technology, application and need of standards and resources, and the future of technology in the construction industry.

“Canadian architecture, engineering, construction, owners, operators and other stakeholders within this industry are generalized as lagging behind its international counterparts when it comes to the adoption of new technologies and processes,” states the AECO news release.

“Understanding the uptake and beliefs surrounding these technologies is critical for their adoption in Canada. The survey aims to capture the state of BIM and other transformative technologies within the Canadian industry and provide a benchmark for their implementation in Canada.”

The survey is open until Dec. 24 and participants will be entered into a draw for an Oculus headset and other prizes offered by AECO partners.

Results will be used to create implementation benchmarks nationwide, provide a greater understanding of today and help shape the future of the Canadian construction industry.
