The NZIOB is sometimes approached by students in a construction-focused tertiary program to circulate their Research Surveys to our membership. This page is the one-stop shop for NZIOB members to participate in construction industry research.
BIM SK Survey for Contractors and Quantity Surveyors
The National BIM Education Working Group (NBEWG) is conducting a research project which aims to:
(1) Define a BIM learning outcome framework which is aligned with the NZ BIM Handbook and the building industry’s expectations
(2) Identify gaps between current BIM teaching in NZ tertiary institutions and industry requirements.
The project is funded by the NZ BIM Acceleration Committee and BRANZ.
