BRANZ has been playing a leading role in bringing together a nationwide alliance of industry and government organisations working to promote BIM within the New Zealand building and construction industry.
The BIMinNZ site offers a number of essential tools and resources to increase the use of BIM across New Zealand, including the NZ BIM Handbook, a BIM 101 industry training video series, case studies, think pieces and BIM events and networking opportunities.
BIMinNZ is driven by the BIM Acceleration Committee (BAC) which is supported by BRANZ through the Building Research Levy.

The full expanse of roles that exist within the New Zealand Construction & Infrastructure industries will be identified together with the development of an interactive vocation-centric online map. The map will provide a holistic view of roles to enable greater visibility of each role, its skill requirements and entry and growth pathways, among other things.
