Travis Van Clieaf

Serving the AEC industry since 2005, Travis Van Clieaf has worked with architects, engineers, manufacturers, and contractors to deliver training that supports in-house talent, and fosters a hands-on, simplified approach to software integration. A graduate of the Sheridan College Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning, Travis has carried forward the principles of innovative learning through the application of software and technology.

Beginning his career in the building products manufacturing industry, working with insulated concrete forms, Travis became entrenched in building envelope specialties. After illustrating a design specification manual, and serving as an architectural technologist in British Columbia, Travis began working with industry professionals providing reprographic print and documentation solutions, which ultimately led to BIM implementation and training.

Through working with two Autodesk resellers – one academic and one commercial – Travis continued to diversify his skillset and expertise, helping schools and businesses to effectively use BIM, 3D printing, and robotics. Now, Travis’ focus is on BIM implementation and software integration training for design and production process management.

As a certified Autodesk Applications Specialist, Travis has provided architectural, interiors and structural BIM training to dozens of organizations. He served as a multi-discipline BIM Manager in an architectural/structural practice, and most recently with an architecture/interiors & mechanical engineering firm. Travis has been an active member of the Canadian BIM Council since 2017.
