New Zealand BIM Conference 2018

The New Zealand BIM Conference 2018 held on the 29th and 30th of October, discussed the importance of collaboration in BIM projects. Increasingly, we are seeing collaboration in the AEC industry across the stakeholders involved in a project as well as creating opportunities for collaboration across technologies available to digitally document the built environment.

BIM is more than modelling; it is also the management of data and models offering opportunity for greater collaboration and understanding around the lifecycle of BIM. Harnessing the full capability gives insight into 4D and 5D and ongoing opportunities to create better buildings.
