The BIMinNZ Conference 2019 was a one-day conference on Building Information Modelling (BIM), providing a forum for New Zealand’s existing and emerging BIM users to meet, discuss, and engage with New Zealand’s BIM innovators. The aim of the conference was to demonstrate to New Zealand’s building and construction industry the ways in which BIM, and other digital technologies, will continue to change the way buildings and infrastructure are designed, documented, delivered and maintained.

The BIMinNZ Conference 2019 was delivered by Industry, for industry through a partnership between the New Zealand Institute of Building (NZIOB) and the BIM Acceleration Committee (BAC), with funding support from the Building Research Levy.
