6.10pm - Jon Williams - BIM Acceleration Committee (BAC) Update, and Coordination vs Collaboration: what do we need to do to make a real step change?

BAC is updating the NZ BIM handbook and providing input into the new NZCIC Design Documentation Guidelines. Both these documents are key in defining the roles, responsibilities and expectations within the building construction industry. What direction are they taking? Can these documents really lead us to a collaborative future?

6.30pm - Haydn Read - Maximising Infrastructure Investment Value with BIM

Collectively, central government is responsible for more than $250 billion of infrastructure assets, and local government has a further $120 billion of community assets on its balance sheets. Maintaining and improving these assets requires billions of dollars of investment each year. However, across New Zealand, we currently collect data in different ways, or do not collect the right data to make informed investment decisions. In some cases, important data isn’t captured at all. These three asset groups (roads, waters, and buildings) are critical pieces of infrastructure to all New Zealanders and improving how we manage them will deliver significant economic, social and cultural benefits. Wellington City catalysed a rethink of how to approach maximising the public value public infrastructure ought to be providing – BIM was at the centre of this thinking.
