BRG’s ARCHIBUS Practice team attended, presented and exhibited at the 2015 ARCHIBUS Nexus Conference. BRG has had a long-standing partnership with ARCHIBUS and therefore our sponsorship and attendance of nearly 25 team members comes as no surprise to our clients and friends. Nexus 2015 was held April 19-22 at the Renaissance Chicago Downtown Hotel. Over the course of the conference, we enjoyed engaging with BRG clients, ARCHIBUS end users, and business partners.


As a part of our attendance we also look for opportunities to share client success stories. This year we were honored to present alongside three clients:

  • Red Hat | “Utilization: The Red Hat Way”
  • State of Minnesota | “Developing a Standard Facility Condition Assessment (FCA) Process to Strategically Fund and Manage Building Maintenance”
  • The City of Calgary | “Developing a Long Term Space Strategy at the City of Calgary”

Each of these sessions shared the in-depth story of how ARCHIBUS has significantly impacted the success of all three of these organizations (with a little help from BRG, of course). If you’d like to request copies of these presentation decks, please email us. We’d love to share their story.

Alongside our client presentations, we were delighted to learn more about all areas of ARCHIBUS and to share with our customers insights into areas of the solution that they had never viewed.


BRG was very happy to hear that our valued client, Margaret Beaton of Enbridge Pipelines, received the Distinguished User Award. This award is presented to an organization that has provided sustained leadership in its implementation and use of real estate, infrastructure, and facilities management technologies. “Ms. Beaton’s real-world business experience allows the Enbridge ARCHIBUS implementation to always be focused on business results and corporate real estate objectives. She is a true leader in how implementations should be managed within organizations.” – ARCHIBUS

Way to go, Margaret! That’s a great achievement.


As we have done many times in the past, we coordinated a special BRG Networking Event for our clients, prospects, partners and friends. This year was especially exciting due to the incredible turnout of more than 100 guests! We thank everyone for joining us. It was a great party at The Wit Hotel’s nightspot, ROOF. This amazing venue is perched atop the Wit Hotel in downtown Chicago. With sweeping views of the city and a roaring fireplace, it was the perfect setting for an evening of networking and meeting new faces. We hope everyone walked away with not only a BRG Swag Bag, but also some really meaningful connections and contacts.


As always, were incredibly excited to sponsor something fun and different at this year’s conference. Lucky for us, ARCHIBUS always throws an amazing bash. This year did not disappoint! We were honored to sponsor the photographer at the Chicago Cultural Center. The evening was filled with live music, food and conversation. Thank you to ARCHIBUSfor hosting such an exciting event.

We hope to see you next year in sunny San Diego!
