BuildBIM is a team of over 35 construction professionals that specialise in the management and development of functional design and construction models. We provide experienced peer reviews, model management, and multi-disciplinary modelling to help resolve designs and produce accurate design, for- construction and workshop drawings.
Our multi-disciplinary team applies experience, technology, and proven methodologies to enhance design, reduce risk and improve construction outcomes. Through rigorous attention to detail and clear honest communication, we strive to achieve best-for-project results by identifying and facilitating the resolution of key design and installation risks.
From feasibility through to construction and asset management, we provide innovative solutions to produce quality deliverables.

DIGITAL ENGINEERING & ADVICE
The information management of the design and construction data and technology is essential to maximising efficiency on large projects today. Our Digital Engineering and BIM Managers provide strategic advice on how to design, adopt and deliver a digital information plan to achieve your objectives.
We follow an Integrated Project Delivery approach to ensure designs are fully considered, with a low risk of late and costly changes.
BIM MANAGEMENT & COORDINATION
As independent BIM Managers, we work with clients and contractors to establish and implement a BIM strategy or BIM execution Plan.
During the pre-construction phase, we will develop and implement a federated project model to ensure each trade complies and delivers complete a coordinated models and drawings. The value is in the moving the resolution of issues to the coordination and shop drawing phase rather than on-site.

CONSTRUCTION MODELLING & DOCUMENTATION
BuildBIM provides multi-disciplinary BIM modelling and construction documentation for clients, consultants, contractors and sub-trades. We work collaboratively with design and construction teams to produce functional and reliable for-construction and for-fabrication documentation.
DIGITAL ASSET & FAMILY CREATION
The modelling of BIM components is the virtual creation of construction products in the BIM language. These are 3D digital representations of product with the advantage that they include embedded product information, e.g. product codes, technical specifications, warranties, installation information etc.
Manufacturers that offer specifiers functional BIM families to use in their design models have a competitive edge on their competitors.
RECENT BIM PROJECTS
AKL 02 - Auckland Datacentre
BuildBIM provided Construction BIM Coordination and Modeling on the AKL 02 Datacenter Project, which will be the largest datacenter ever built in New Zealand. The 11,600 m2 two level 40MW facility will be built on a five-hectare site in north Auckland.
BuildBIM provided coordination, modelling and shop drawing to the general contractor, Hawkins Construction, rationalising the design in order to adapt this complex building for New Zealand seismic conditions.
Works included management of architectural, structural, civil and building services models.
Waikeria Prison Redevelopment
BuildBIM provided BIM Management services on the WPPPD project, which will be New Zealand's largest prison with 27 separate buildings.
BuildBIM provided clash detection and reporting services on behalf of the general contractor, CPB, introducing BIMtrack to the clash detection process to improve coordination and provide greater transparency of resolution of issues. BuildBIM also provided service documentation and shop drawings for the electrical sub-trade.
NZ International Convention Centre, Auckland
BuildBIM, in collaboration with McKay, is provided pre-fire and now post-fire Electrical BIM Coordination & Modelling services on the New Zealand International Convention Centre (NZICC) in Auckland.
BuildBIM’s role was to work with our client, McKay to provide BIM coordination management and modelling for the electrical systems, using the coordinated model to produce shop drawings. Such a large-scale complex facility incorporates considerable electrical services which must be coordinated in-conjunction with full structural steel fabrication and comprehensive mechanical, hydraulic and fire services trade models.
Fisher & Paykel Healthcare – Building 4, Auckland
BuildBIM, in collaboration Aquaheat, provided mechanical BIM coordination and modelling services on the new Fisher & Paykel Healthcare Building 4. The building, with a total gross floor area of 35,700m², contains offices, a laboratory, model-shop space, manufacturing space, a materials warehouse and large-scale distribution centre.
Advanced BIM has been a feature of this project with the client requiring the delivery of a 3D model for Facilities Management use, following the completion of construction.
Shirley Boys High and Avonside Girls High School, Christchurch
The school facilities include a 750 seat performing arts centre, a 100 seat theatre, four full-sized sports fields with a 400-metre running track, three full-sized indoor gymnasiums and a cafe and fully-equipped commercial teaching kitchen.
The Antipodean, 39 - 53 Beach Road, Auckland
BuildBIM in collaboration with Construction Workshop provided BIM modelling services on the Antipodean building. This 15 level apartment building, constructed by Watts and Hughes, is comprised of 161 apartments, a 20m lap pool, and underground parking.
BuildBIM provided BIM modelling services for the Hydraulics, Electrical and Fire Services reporting issues on the Revizto platform.

Flinders Medical – Health and Hospitality Centre, Adelaide, South Australia
In collaboration with Virtual Built Pty and Hansen Yunken, BuildBIM provided architectural and structural BIM modelling services on the $185.5m upgrade of the Flinders Medical Centre in Adelaide, South Australia.
The new building is adjacent to the existing Flinders Hospital and includes a state of the art rehabilitation facility spread across 5 levels and 11,000m2.

Dunedin Hospital ICU & Gastro
BuildBIM in collaboration with Atmos provided mechanical service coordination and modelling on the new Dunedin Hospital Intensive Care Unit and Gastronomy area development. The $15 million facility is a "critical care unit'' that includes two high dependency units.
This project was particularly complex being a refurbishment of an existing building. Working with Naylor Love, the lead services coordinator, BuildBIM provided critical clash-detection services to iron out clashes with the existing building, architecture and services, while developing the mechanical BIM to produce the shop-drawings and as-builts for hand-over.

Glenview Medical Centre, Hamilton
BuildBIM in collaboration with Sekta Architects provided architectural detailed design documentation in Revit on the new Glenview Medical Centre, in Hamilton. The $5m rebuild included two minor surgery rooms, teaching rooms, a new radiology service and storage. The floor plan was increase to around 1,400 square metres and the number of consultation rooms was expanded from seven to 13. The project was designed by Sekta Architects and built by Hawkins Construction.
BuildBIM provided coordinated architectural documentation for building consent, tender and construction.
