The Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) is the Governments lead business-facing agency. MBIE plays a central role in shaping and delivering a strong New Zealand economy. Everything the MBIE deliver is about growing New Zealand for all. They have a recognition that a strong economy is one in which they can use the skills, knowledge and time of the people in conjunction with their natural resources, and financial and physical capital to improve the wellbeing of current and future generations.
The MBIE have created a BIM website to deliver information about the local adoption and development of BIM. The MBIE in New Zealand supports the development of BIM, and through the work of the BIM Acceleration Committee is learning how BIM can have a positive impact on the NZ building and construction sector. Information about the BIM Acceleration Committee can also be found on this information collection. This page regarding BIM on the MBIE website is in the same section as planning and consents for building work in the country, indicating its importance at the planning level.
