We’re not the only ones who believe the Canadian construction industry is trailing international peers in productivity, efficiency, and digital adoption.

Since 2008, Building Transformations (formerly known as CanBIM) has been advocating for digital technologies and innovation within our industry and providing organizations, professionals, and students with opportunities to incorporate best practices.

Each year, Building Transformations recognizes¬† the “most innovative companies and professionals in the industry” at their annual Innovation Spotlight Awards. This year, we are pleased to share that Naikoon’s own Joe Geluch has received the prestigious Professional Achievement Award for his efforts demonstrating that digital technology adoption for small businesses, and within the residential construction sector, is not only possible, but profitable.

Under Joe’s leadership, Naikoon utilizes 4D virtual design and construction delivery methods across a diverse range of project typologies and scales. Throughout the firm’s digitization journey, Joe has been unwavering in his commitment to document our experiences (good and bad) in robust case studies, and share learnings in interviews, industry panels, and podcasts. Nominated for the award by our friend and collaborator Helen Goodland, Head of Research and Innovation at SCIUS Advisory, she emphasized the importance of this work in the light of BC’s pressing housing crisis and the need to modernize the housing sector to meet national new build targets.

It is our hope that organizations that hear VDC success stories like ours will be curious to learn more, and begin their own modernization efforts. One small step for Naikoon, one giant leap for the industry…

Congratulations to all the award winners.
