BIM Industry Training

Ensuring the architects, engineers, and construction professionals of today remain current with the changing ways of delivering great value to clients and the increasing range of digitals tools to help with this is an important enabler of BIM adoption.  Industry training and the BIM networks are key ways New Zealand BIM practitioners help each other stay up to date.

BRE delivered a New Zealand version of their 2 day introduction to BIM course in 2013.  They also trained 5 New Zealand BIM practitioners to deliver the course. An architect, engineer, quantity surveyor, constructor and a specialist tradesperson. These industry trainers took the 2 day course, made it even more NZ specific and paired it down to a half day seminar. They delivered it across the country with assistance from the NZIOB.  You can find the BIM101 training booklet below.

None of this would be possible without the enormous commitment of the NZIOB and the industry training group, particularly
