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.
The intent of the BIM execution plan is to provide an outline that will ensure all parties involved are clearly aware of the opportunities and responsibilities associated with projects that implement BIM. The plan defines why you are using BIM on the project. It sets goals, objectives, and responsibilities, and outlines how the process will be executed through the project life cycle. The BIM execution plan is a living document and should be developed and refined throughout the project life cycle to ensure the project remains on schedule and meets the briefed requirements. This BEP template can be used as a framework for the development of a BEP for specific construction project/s. The BIM execution plan should be developed with reference to the New Zealand BIM handbook. This resource is the template which is available in Word format, the example file is also available on the Information collection.
