IMAGINiT Technologies Announces Platinum Level Partnership with Canadian Construction Association

Framingham, MA – Rand Worldwide announced its IMAGINiT Technologies division has elevated its long term relationship with the Canadian Construction Association (CCA) and joins them this year as a Platinum level partner.

In addition, IMAGINiT will be hosting a business session entitled ‘Who’s driving the boat: industry vs. technology’ at the CCA’s 2014 annual conference being held at the Westin Playa Bonita in Panama, March 8-14, 2014.

“We are pleased to have IMAGINiT Technologies onboard as a Platinum level sponsor this year,” says Serge Massicotte, conference chair and incoming 2014 chair of the Canadian Construction Association (CCA) board of directors. “Our members increasingly leverage technology in their work. IMAGINiT Technologies’ understands the intersection of technology and the modern construction industry. I think the panel session – Who’s Driving the Boat: Industry vs. Technology – sponsored and moderated by IMAGINiT will be very interesting. We at CCA look forward to their contributions at our annual conference and throughout the course of the year.”

IMAGINiT and the CCA have partnered together for four years helping to drive innovation and advance awareness of the efforts of non-residential construction companies working across Canada. With experts and offices located throughout the country, IMAGINiT brings a unique perspective on how technology has revolutionized the industrial, institutional, commercial and civil engineering construction. IMAGINiT’s session at the CCA’s annual conference will leverage this expertise and highlight the benefits associated with the adoption of technology across the construction industry.

Tim Johnson, senior vice president, IMAGINiT Technologies says,  “In order to take advantage of the opportunities created by organic growth and the boost in infrastructure funding from the federal government, companies need to harness new processes and supporting technologies, including building information modeling (BIM) and integrated project delivery (IPD).”


“The challenge for companies is determining how they can successfully ride the wave of growth that’s happening in the Canadian construction industry today even in the midst of a labor shortage,” says  Johnson.

Beyond the annual conference, IMAGINiT’s partnership with the CCA strives to help educate members via joint webcasts, newsletters and other channels of communication. IMAGINiT will also have representation with the Institute for BIM in Canada (IBC) and the Construction Industry Leaders Forum where they will contribute and provide thought leadership that drives the adoption of BIM and IPD across Canada.

“Our goal is to provide construction firms with the information they need to make solid business decisions about their technology and how that investment can positively affect the bottom line,” continues Johnson. “Knowing what parts of their business may be impacted by change is key to being able to move forward and win business.”

As demand for construction projects in Canada continues to grow, tight labor markets are increasingly reliant on technology. New methodologies such as BIM, integrated project delivery and lean construction are also impacting the Canadian industry. IMAGINiT Technologies proprietary software such as IMAGINiT Clarity and IMAGINiT Utilities for Civil 3D help companies in the construction industry to streamline projects and increase collaboration so that projects can be delivered faster and more economically.
