Building Information Modelling (BIM) is an intelligent 3D model-based process that provides architects, engineers and construction professionals the insight and tools to more effectively plan, design, construct and manage buildings and infrastructure.  Across the world, BIM is becoming a crucial and even mandated process to ensure that the planning, design and construction of buildings is highly efficient and collaborative.

Join us at this upcoming Property Council South Island event to learn from our expert panel exactly what BIM is, the advantages of applying this process in the property industry, and how it is already being used in local construction projects. 

Spaces are limited, so make sure you book your place now. 

Please advise us if you have any special dietary requirements.
