NBS International BIM Report 2013


NBS has just published an international BIM survey, which was carried out in four countries - the UK, Canada, New Zealand and Finland. We expect to carry out this survey every year, and we invite more countries to participate. If you would like to do so, please contact Adrian Malleson, at Adrian.Malleson@thenbs.com


New Zealand National BIM Survey 2013


The survey, which replicates an earlier survey some 18 months ago, points to significant increases in BIM awareness and usage in New Zealand. These positive signs suggest that the New Zealand construction industry is now seeing the real potential of this technology shift. However, the term Building Information Modelling (BIM) still has a wide range of different meanings, even among those who say they are already using the new technology. The report also highlights potential roadblocks to full adoption of BIM, including the need for agreed industry wide protocols and tools. The information adds weight to the ongoing discussions with key industry stakeholders to arrive at coordinated and effective outcomes. This comprehensive BIM report, including a foreword by a government Minister, industry leader opinions, an international comparison and a ‘next steps’ section, can be accessed from http://www.masterspec.co.nz/news/reports-1243.htm Rolf Huber, CEO, Masterspec, New Zealand rolf@masterspec.co.nz
