myBIMteam was founded as myCADD in 2003 by Troy Mifsud.
Troy practiced Healthcare Architecture for a number of years, but his passion was always for CAD technology.
Who is Troy Mifsud?
In 2001 Troy joined a large national Autodesk reseller to launch their Architectural CAD Consulting Services. Always feeling pressured to “sell software” and knowing that clients would be better served if they used the software they already had more efficiently, Troy decided to go out on his own and start myCADD in 2003 to provide Architects, Engineers, Contractors, and Facilities Managers a resource optimizing and simplifying CAD.
In 2021 myCADD rebranded to myBIMteam, recognizing that the company’s primary focus had shifted from CAD to Revit/BIM technologies. The rebranding also allowed Troy to expand services. Now, not only do we specialize in BIM Management and Support, Revit Modeling, and Revit Training, but also Laser Scanning, Digital Twin Development, and Facilities Management.
Throughout all these years, Troy’s goals remain the same, to help clients be more productive by simplifying and optimizing design software and tech.
To empower the Architecture, Engineering, Construction, and Operations (AECO) community through cutting-edge BIM technologies, comprehensive training, reality capture, facilities management, and by offering extensive resources.
To be a leader in BIM technologies, comprehensive training, reality capture, facilities management, and offering extensive resources to streamline our client’s workload, save them money, and free up their time for more projects.
Troy Mifsud, the founder of myCADD (now myBIMteam) in 2003, is a visionary leader driving strategic planning and project management. With a pragmatic approach and exceptional facilitation skills, Troy brings diverse groups together to solve complicated projects effectively. With extensive experience in Design, Construction, and Facility Management, he specializes in optimizing workflows and enhancing project productivity through the application of software tools.
Recognized as an outstanding technical speaker, Troy excels at simplifying complex topics for universal comprehension. He has been a featured speaker at esteemed conferences and events hosted by industry organizations such as AGC, AIA, CSI, and Autodesk. As an accomplished author, Troy has created comprehensive video training books for Revit Architecture. His profound understanding of technology, the AECO industry, and software processes has established him as a respected authority in the CADD/BIM field.
Troy earned a Bachelor of Architecture Technology degree from Ryerson University in Toronto, which laid the foundation for his successful career in healthcare architecture. Subsequently, he served as the lead technical specialist for a prominent national Autodesk reseller, solidifying his expertise.
If you want to connect with Troy outside of work, you will find him at the golf course in the summer or on the slopes or curling ice in the winter.
