BIMinNZ is a one-day conference on Building Information Modelling (BIM) representing an industry partnership between the New Zealand Institute of Building (NZIOB) and the BIM Acceleration Committee (BAC). BAC was created out of the government-sponsored 2011 Building and Construction Productivity Partnership, which viewed BIM as a leading tool to enhance productivity levels in the sector.
The inaugural BIMinNZ Conference in 2019 drew an audience of 270 and was considered a great success. The second BIMinNZ Conference will be held in Wellington on Thursday, 10 March 2022. With a Conference Steering Group comprised of active construction practitioners, the 2022 BIMinNZ Conference will deliver a programme that has been envisaged and delivered by industry, for industry.
Building our Digital Community to encompass the full construction supply chain is the overarching theme for the BIMinNZ 2022 Conference. This theme is underpinned by the showcasing of New Zealand construction projects, as presented by the clients, contractors, and consultants who designed and delivered them. The common thread amongst the projects is the use of Building Information Modelling (BIM) and other construction technologies by the construction supply chain.
BIMinNZ will not only provide relevant and inspiring examples of where BIM sits within the project environment, but also provide a forum where New Zealand’s existing and emerging BIM users can meet, discuss, and engage with New Zealand’s BIM innovators.
Under the session titles of Productivity, Risk-Mitigation, and Sustainability, projects to be showcased at BIMinNZ include:
- Kiwi Rail’s pioneering ‘machine control and avoidance’ system
- NZ Archives
- Christ Church Cathedral
- Waikato River to Redoubt (R2R)
- Wellington City Council, Rules as Code
- Foodstuffs Distribution Centre, Auckland Airport
- Wellington Convention Centre
- University of Auckland’s B201 Building
- CLT/mass timber usage at Mary Potter Apartments
The above topics will be bookended by digital community presentations from thought leaders: Shawn Achor, TED Talk presenter (USA), and Melissa Clark Reynolds, ONZM (NZ). The Conference MC will once again be Petra Bagust.
Registrations are now open.
