BIM in NZ: an Industry-Wide View

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

The BIM Control Groups

This series follows three control groups of large and influential organisations in New Zealand's built environment, allowing developments in BIM's introduction to be monitored.

Industry control group

The industry control group is a sample of 46 businesses or individuals who have been identified as key users of BIM technology within the building and construction industry. These businesses participated in the initial survey on BIM use in 2014, and the same businesses are re-approached each year. This allows us to compare the 2014 data with the latest results to see how BIM use and acceptance has changed among this core group in the last 12 months. These findings will illustrate the value of BIM to others within the industry.

Industry Control Group Organisations include:
AECOM Ignite Architects
Archaus Jasmax
Architectus Jensen Steel Fabricators
asBUILT Digital Ltd KTA Ltd
Assemble Maltbys Ltd
Auckland Airport Patterson Associates Ltd
BECA Peddle Thorp Aitken Limited

Client control group

In 2016, an additional survey was initiated to focus on clients' use and understanding of BIM, in order to better understand what progress BIM is having in facilities and asset management.
