On this episode of the Construction Record Podcast, digital media editor Warren Frey speaks with SNC-Lavalin lead BIM manager Jean-Pierre Rivard and local and provincial public sector director Mathieu Latouche talk about using digital twins to design health infrastructure and not only address that sector’s unique needs but also maintain health facilities by catching potential equipment problems before they occur.
Daily Commercial News daily editor Lindsey Cole joins Warren for the news segment starting the show, featuring a Vaughan gondola project that’s ‘speculative’, a new amphitheater design for the Pacific National Exhibition in Vancouver and an RFQ has been issued for the contentious George Massey Tunnel replacement project.
Our final segment of the pod is an interview with Ayers Saint Gross principal Glen Birx about the ongoing investigations into the tragic Champlain Towers South condo collapse in Surfside, FL on June 24, 2021. Birx moderated a session about the collapse at the American Institute of Architects conference held recently in San Francisco and gave insights as to the timeline of the collapse and what elementsof the building’s structure could have contributed to the disaster.
