ABOUT | Our Team


BuildBIM specialises in the development of best-in-class design and construction models, offering BIM management and multi-disciplinary BIM modelling to enable coordinated design.

We apply experience, technology, and proven methodologies to improve construction outcomes and deliver valuable digital assets. Through rigorous attention to detail and clear, honest communication, we strive to reduce silos and maximize efficiencies throughout the asset lifecycle.

From feasibility through design, construction and asset management, we provide innovative solutions to produce quality outcomes.

BuildBIM digital engineering and 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 and coordination

As independent BIM Managers, we work with clients and contractors to develop and implement BIM strategies.

Working with the design and shop drawing teams, we lead the coordination of federated project models to ensure each discipline is delivered in accordance with the project's BIM requirements. 

Significant value is achieved by resolving issues during the design and shop drawing phases rather than during construction.

Construction modelling and 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 documentation.

BIM Family - 3D representation of a product

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.

Snells Beach Wastewater Treatment Plant

Fletcher Construction engaged BuildBIM to review and enhance the consultant developed design models on the Snells Beach WWTP.


Our role was to ensure the model's accuracy and completeness was in alignment with the project documentation. This involved checking and updating pipe runs against Piping and Instrumentation Diagram (P&ID), adding missing components, and updating pipe types, lengths and fittings to match engineering specifications and coordinate for installation.

Our detailed adjustments ensured a precise and reliable model, supporting Fletcher in achieving smooth project execution.

Microsoft data centre
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.


Ō Mahurangi Penlink Project

BUILDBIM is providing Digital Engineering and BIM Management services to the Penlink Alliance team on the Ō Mahurangi Penlink Project, a new $830 million, 7 km road from SH 01 through farmland and coastal environment to the Whangaparāoa Peninsula.

This project is a great opportunity to leverage BIM in the NZ Infrastructure sector and the Alliance is developing some innovative solutions in this space.

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.
