Architecture & Design Management
The management of the design process is essential for maximising value on a project. We adopt an Integrated Project Delivery approach to ensure your design is fully considered, with a low risk of late and costly changes. Design management ensures that there are no scope gaps, so nothing slips through.
Our registered architects provide Master Planning and Architectural Design & Consenting Services, with expertise in aged care and multi-residential developments.
BIM Management & Co-ordination
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.

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.
BIM Content 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.
BuildBIM was established in 2012 to support the industry transition toward a more BIM-centric or virtual design and construction process. Properly managed, a BIM methodology can help integrate project teams, improve visibility of design issues, and re-purpose information flows to eliminate silo effects and reduce construction risk.
As experts in both design technology and construction, our ultimate goal is to ensure that considered designs are created and developed into buildable design & construction documents that actually work on site.
BuildBIM services include Design Management, BIM Consultancy and Management, Services Coordination, Multi-disciplinary Construction modelling and Architecture.
Recent BIM Projects
BuildBIM provided BIM Management services on the WPPPD project. In addition to providing clash detection and reporting services to our client CPB Contractors (CIMIC Group), buildBIM introduced BIMtrack to the clash detection process in oder to provide additional transparency and accountability for the resolution of issues on site. In addition, buildBIM is providing electrical coordination, modelling and shop drawings to McKay.
With a 500 bed capacity, as well as another 100 beds in the mental health unit, Waikeria Prison will become the largest in New Zealand with 27 separate building
Waikeria Prison Redevelopment
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.

Portobello Marine Laboratory Facilities, University of Otago
In collaboration with Cook Brothers Construction, BuildBIM provided BIM modelling of mechanical and plumbing services and as-built documentation on the newly constructed Portobello Marine Laboratory Facilities.
The $5 million marine science laboratory includes a 6m aqua-display tank and a new seawater system that pumps 60,000 litres of seawater through the complex every hour.

Hotel Santa Magdalena, Santiago, Chile
The Hotel Santa Magdalena is a 13 storey building, including four below ground, totalling approximately 3460 m2. BuildBIM was commissioned by Grupo Hotelero RQ for the coordination of Architecture, Structural Engineering, Hydraulic, HVAC, Electrical, Security and Lifts.
636 conflicts were found during the clash detection process. These were grouped according to their degree of complexity, defining inconsistencies and omissions in the projects. Based on data provided by IDIEM, (Chilean construction research and development center) there was a saving of $173,195 by resolving these conflicts in the design stage through the BIM model instead of on-site.
