BIM in NZ: an Industry-Wide View

Baseline information on the use of BIM across the New Zealand construction industry

BIM Benchmark Survey 2018

This is the fifth survey in a series originally planned to total five, but which we now have a commitment to at least one more year. It’s objective is to follow progress being made in accelerating the introduction of BIM into New Zealand.

This five-year series follows an industry group of large and influential organisations in New Zealand’s built environment, allowing developments in BIM’s introduction to be monitored.

For the third year we have also carried out a client survey which focuses on asset owners and managers in order to better understand what progress BIM is having in facilities and asset management.

Once again the BIM Acceleration Committee (BAC) considers itself fortunate to have the continuing support of BRANZ, a number of large private sector organisations and several Government Ministries, as it enters its second three-year term in its effort to accelerate
BIM introduction into New Zealand. Our sincerest thanks go to our partner, EBOSS, for its investment in managing and sponsoring these surveys; and to those organisations forming the industry and client survey groups. These surveys are critical in a very complete
view of progress in BIM introduction and identification of barriers to its implementation.

Finally, should any reader of this report have any suggestions for improvement, please don’t hesitate to e-mail BIMinNZ at, or raise the issue at one of the regular BIM network meetings now taking place in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch (see for more details).

Kind Regards

Andrew Reding
Chair, BIM Acceleration Committee
