Glenn Jowett posted some insight into BIM standards development in New Zealand:
Natspec have been commissioned to author the NZ BIM Handbook
The aim is to create a guide that will clarify BIM (on a national level) for all project stakeholders.
The Australian National BIM Guide produced by Natspec will be used as a starting point http://bim.natspec.org/index.php/natspec-bim-documents/national-bim-guide this decision was made after reviewing a number of countries BIM Handbooks, the Australian one seemed to be the most comprehensive and didn’t have hundreds of pages like some of the others.
(insert joke about NZ copying Australia here… 🙂
