The BIM Acceleration Committee (BAC) is the driving force behind BIMinNZ. They are a nationwide alliance of industry and government, established in Feb 2014 to coordinate efforts to increase the use of BIM in New Zealand. The BAC is a nationwide alliance of industry and government. It is sponsored by the Productivity Partnership and BRANZ. The BAC meets every six weeks and members are drawn from across the building and construction industry and give their expertise and time freely. The purpose of the group is accelerating the use of BIM in New Zealand because it is key to achieving significant increase in productivity, accelerating the use of BIM in the construction process, and for that reason has become a priority. It is vital that industry, clients and government begin to take advantage of its many benefits especially during this time of high construction demand. New Zealanders need more affordable, quality buildings and infrastructure, now and in the future.
The website offers a number of tools and resources to increase the use of BIM across New Zealand. BIMinNZ is driven by the BAC. Resources include BAC reports as well as a BIM Handbook and a series of recent reports to provide clarity around BIM and provide guidance. The resources include information around getting started with BIM adoption, Training and details of various events and networking related to BIM in NZ.
