The appendicies to the New Zealand BIM Handbook have been published by the BIM acceleration committee (BAC) and were created to promote the use of BIM and it’s benefits to create, maintain and operate quality built assest in New Zealand. These appendices explain and give examples of some of the different BIM elements which can be applied to projects. These appendices contain guidance as well as templates which can be used as a resource on projects, to facilitate early BIM adoption.
This appendix document identifies goals, uses, objectives, and responsibilities with regard to BIM. The project BIM brief should be developed in the project establishment phase to be fully effective. It is a briefing document in its own right and could form part of a Request For Proposal (RFP). The BIM evaluation and response template should accompany this brief to provide a consistent set of questions for suppliers. After this phase, the BIM execution plan provides the framework for management and operational functions of BIM throughout the projects life cycle. The project BIM brief should be developed with reference to the New Zealand BIM handbook and client information strategy and operations requirements. The briefing document should be used at pre-appointment stages when procuring a delivery team. This resource is the example, the Word format template file is also available on the Information collection.
