Masterspec Building Information Modelling Portal
Tools and resources for the exchange of digital Building Information in New Zealand
BIM has the potential to create a step change in NZ construction productivity and Masterspec is working with the industry to help realise the full potential of BIM in NZ.
These pages are to keep you in touch with the work Masterspec is doing in the BIM space and to provide you with useful resources to help you on your BIM journey; whether you are just starting out or well on the way.
What is BIM?
Building Information Modelling:
- Utilises 3D models of buildings to better understand the construction process.
- Uses objects to represent real building components like walls, floors, doors, windows, roofs.
- Objects have intelligence, not just lines on pages like drawings. A wall knows that it is a wall and what it is made of.
- BIM can be used for 3D visualisation, clash detection, specification, accurate costing, project planning, facilities management, and much more
International BIM Object standard
With the view to improving BIM collaboration and coordination internationally, Masterspec have worked with NATSPEC (Australia) and the NBS (United Kingdom) to develop an International BIM Object standard based on the award winning NBS Object standard.
