VIC CPD: ANZ BIM Best Practice Guidelines

VIC CPD: ANZ BIM Best Practice Guidelines
Building Information Modelling (BIM) has become more popular in recent years as digital 
construction technology is beginning to fundamentally transform the building and 
construction industry practice in the delivery of the built environment. New technologies 
will improve construction productivity as well as the level of integration and collaboration 
across the various disciplines in the construction value chain. It is therefore important for 
the industry to embrace the technology with clarity. 

These guidelines highlight key knowledge areas relating to BIM, including information on 
what quantity surveyors need to know about BIM, specifics about 5D BIM (what it actually is and what it isn't), what to expect
in a BIM project, timeline of a quantity surveyor’s role in the BIM Execution Plan, what information quantity surveyors need 
from 3D digital models, quality assurance, and legal issues to be aware of whilst working on BIM projects. 

It is an essential guide for quantity surveyors, cost managers or cost estimators looking to be involved with a
project utilising BIM. Throughout the document, the term quantity surveyor (QS) will be used in reference to all the 
above-mentioned roles. 

This document is produced by AIQS in partnership with the NZIQS.
