The Building Information Council (Bouw Informatie Raad, or BIR) promotes widespread application of BIM in the Dutch construction and infrastructure industry. BIR is a unique partnership between various stakeholders in the construction industry, where the members represent both their construction industry segment and their own company. They make practical agreements that are in the interests of the entire industry and ensure these are implemented within their own segment. The partnership focuses on implementing BIM to strengthen the quality, continuity and competitive position of the Dutch construction and infrastructure industry. The resources cotained on the website help to accelerate the development and adoption of BIM within the Netherlands.

Making the transition to working with BIM will greatly benefit an organization. A successful BIM implementation will make the exchange of digital information more efficient. This, in turn, will contribute to minimizing failure costs, minimizing loss of information and clarifying workflows and schedules. Implementing BIM will have an impact on an organization, and investments (in the IT department and in education) will have to be made and the way the company and its employees work (together) will change. These changes require extra effort from staff, managing this transition properly is the key to success. This leaflet lays out a series of steps that will help you manage this process.

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. An important enabler of BIM adoption is to ensure that construction professionals of today remain current with the changing ways of delivering great value to clients, whilst at the same time increasing the range of digital tools available. This range of video training resources which the BAC has made freely available helps industry to grow capability & capacity related to BIM.

As part of the BIMinNZ initiative for industry training the successful BIM101: An insight Seminar series have been created and presented by Industry volunteers. There are Seven Modules, and these videos follow on from the successful BIM101 training booklet which can be downloaded on the BIM Industry Training page.

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 say that there is no better way to understand the benefits of BIM then to see how it has impacted real projects in the country. This site includes a series of case studies demonstrating the costs, benefits and risk management benefits of using BIM.

There are 13 case studies currently outlined on the website covering a wide range of projects, including a wastewater treatment plant, a gym, residential flats, bespoke university buildings, etc.

BIM Loket is working towards a sector in which working with BIM and open standards is the norm. As part of this they need to develop information and training related to BIM to upskill the industry and increase the capability to deliver these requirements. The BIM Loket website contains lots of information and support documentation like this short film and selection of case studies related to BIM in practice.

BIM is a collection of technical solutions to exchange construction data. But BIM is above all a new way of working together within construction and infrastructure. This resource asks, what does it actually mean to work with BIM? And what bumps should you take? And what’s in it for you? The short film “Secretly quite a big change” gives you a look behind the scenes of three large clients who have a number of years of experience with BIM. In addition to this video there are also 3 BIM case studies looking at Schiphol airport, Rotterdam and Gelderland.

This two page leaflet from BOUW illustrates and explains in simple terms, ‘What is BIM?’. The document is for sharing with all parties in the construction sector and articulates why they should be using BIM on their project alongside importantly how to get started. This leaflet also contains a reference to the BIM uses document, also contained in this Information Collection.
