Who We Are

The Building Innovation Partnership (BIP) is an industry-led research programme focussed on improving infrastructure planning, design, construction and management processes, and the development of engineering solutions that improve the resilience and affordability of our built assets.

What We Do

The BIP research and delivery programme supports the NZ building industry in becoming a world leader in applying digital methods to asset planning, design, construction and management, and for engineering solutions that improve the resilience and value of buildings and horizontal infrastructure.

How We Are Financed

This eight-year research programme (2018-2026) is  based in the Department of Civil and Natural Resources Engineering at the University of Canterbury and supported by the Government Research Partnerships Scheme ($5 million) and industry ($7.5 million).
