Event 1: Building compliance goes digital

Time: 10:00am – 11:00am

World-leading digital technology simplifies complex building compliance audits.

Join us at our Techweek'21 event for a demonstration on how ACABIM enables human-guided, automated compliance auditing of building information models against legal documents such as the Building Code and Standards. ACABIM will support every aspect of the project lifecycle, from design through to construction and operation phases.

What is ACABIM?

Stay at the forefront of standards-based innovation. The ACABIM system, developed by Compliance Audit Systems (CAS), is set to revolutionise building design compliance auditing, helping the building industry be efficient, safe and future-proofed.

Dr Johannes Dimyadi and Prof Robert Amor of Auckland University, who are leading the development of ACABIM and their colleague, Minas Liarokapis, who is pioneering new robotics technology in the construction industry, will be showcasing their innovative compliance automation technology.

Standards New Zealand aims to make standards accessible in effective and useful formats, to increase their uptake and usefulness. ACABIM is an excellent example of what we are doing with our Value-Add programme – using standards content to provide greater benefits for end users.

Network and learn

This event will be particularly interesting for anyone developing digital products based on compliance and standards, and those involved in building and construction and anyone interested in digital innovation and finding new ways of making standards accessible.
