Presentation 1 - Chris Needham, AECOM's Southern Australia BIM Lead. Presenting the Sydney Opera House BIM+FM Case Study.

The potential BIM promises toward improved Asset Management and Facility Management is widely touted, but rarely in any great detail. This presentation will focus on a case study: the Sydney Opera House, with its ‘BIM+FM Interface’ project. This is a world-renowned architectural icon, set to benefit from extensive use of multiple data sources integrated with an as-built model of the building - all while juggling multiple improvement projects.

Hear about real-world projects with real-world problems and real-world solutions. Topics to be covered will include as-built model specifications, data schemas, database integration, information use cases and more. Learn more about the role of middleware in information integration, and the challenges that brings.

Presentation 2 - Matthew Duder (EBOSS) presents the results of the 2016 Industry Control Group BIM Survey.

This is the third survey in what is planned to be a five year series that follows the progress of the introduction of Building Information Modelling (BIM) into New Zealand.

Presentation 3 - BIM Acceleration Committee NZ BIM Handbook update.

The BIM Acceleration Committee released the New Zealand BIM handbook in July 2014. The handbook is the de facto guide of how BIM can be enabled and delivered in New Zealand, defining key terms and describing key processes for ‘doing BIM’.

A small group of BIM practioners have revised the BIM handbook in light of NZ’s maturity and developing international practice. This short presentation will outline the major developments and changes to the document and its Appendices.

7:20pm - Open floor discussion
