This New Zealand National BIM Survey 2013 report has been prepared by Masterspec on behalf of the construction industry with support from BRANZ, RMBF, NZIA, ACENZ, the MBIE-sponsored Productivity Partnership and NBS (UK). It provides a credible picture of present day attitudes and progress made towards Building Information Modelling (BIM) in New Zealand.
The survey responses reveal positive signs that a growing sector of the industry is beginning to see the potential of this technology shift. However, the term Building Information Modelling (BIM) has a wide spectrum of different meanings (e.g. 3D CAD), even among those who say they are already using the new technology. The report also highlights potential roadblocks to full adoption of BIM, including the need for agreed industry wide protocols and tools.
This is a comprehensive BIM report, including a foreword by the Minister, industry leader opinions, an international comparison and a ‘Next Steps’ section.
