Representing an industry partnership between the NZ Institute of Building (NZIOB) and the BIMinNZ Steering Group, we proudly invite you to attend a compelling one-day conference, Building our Digital Community, 23 March 2023, at Te Papa in Wellington

The view is that Building Information Modelling or BIM is a leading tool to enhance productivity levels in the sector. The inaugural BIMinNZ Conference in 2019 drew an impressive audience of 270 digitally-minded attendees and was considered a great success. 

This is the second in the digitally-focused series and will deliver a programme that is envisaged and delivered by industry – for industry. 


The overarching theme of “Building our Digital Community”, encompasses the full construction supply chain. 

This theme is underpinned by showcasing New Zealand construction projects, presented by the clients, contractors and consultants who designed and delivered them. 

The common thread amongst these projects is the use of digital tools and techniques including BIM  plus other construction technologies to deliver better built outcomes. 

The conference will not only provide relevant and awe-inspiring examples of where digital community building sits within the project environment, but also a forum where a wide range of digital users can meet, discuss and engage with some of the world’s and our country’s most dazzling digital innovators. The emphasis is on creating a culture where we are not individual leaders, but collective supporters for everyone’s project, and ultimately responsible for each other. A community.

The topics fall broadly into areas of  Productivity, Risk-Mitigation, and Sustainability, with projects including:

  • KiwiRail’s pioneering “machine control and avoidance” system 
  • Christ Church Cathedral 
  • Wellington City Council, Digital Twin 
  • Foodstuffs Distribution Centre, Auckland Airport 
  • Wellington Convention Centre 
  • University of Auckland’s B201 Building 
  • Helensville Wastewater Treatment 
  • Design for manufacture
  • Delivery Net-Zero BIM enabled Carbon Calculation 

The project showcases will be introduced by MC Petra Bagust, followed by International Digital Keynote Amy Marks and rounded out with a presentation by Melissa Clark Reynolds, ONZM.
