DigiGuide update - What's new in the BIM Handbook?

Posted on Thursday 05 October, 2023

The New Zealand Institute of Building and the BIMinNZ Steering Group are working with subject matter experts on a Digital BIM Guidance Project (DigiGuide). One of the key outcomes of the project is to review and update the current Building Information Modelling (BIM) Handbook (2019) to ensure it is current with the relevant international standards, considers any industry led process changes and includes new terminology. This project is being funded by the Construction Sector Accord through its Innovation workstream. 

The NZ BIM Handbook has been the cornerstone of BIM adoption in the New Zealand construction sector since 2014. The current version was published in 2019 but as this is a fast-evolving environment, it’s in need of a refresh. 

So, why is this needed and what can you expect to see in the updated Handbook?
