BIM Management & Co-ordination

As BIM Manager, we work with owners, architects and contractors to establish a BIM strategy. The BIM strategy defines the client’s objectives for choosing BIM, this could include: model lead pricing and feasibility analysis, the de-risking of the construction phase through design coordination, or the development of an as-built digital model for asset management.

Our Company

BuildBIM was established in 2012 in order to take full advantage of the collaborative qualities of Building Information Modelling aka BIM (we thinks it’s great!).

We offer a range of digital construction solutions including BIM management & coordination, BIM & CAD modelling & documentation, and BIM content creation.

Our goal is to ensure BIM delivers real benefits to those who see the light. If managed properly, placing the BIM at the centre of the building process should considerably de-risk projects and provide a valuable digital asset for building owners and operators over the life of the building. With technology advancing at such a rapid pace, neither building owners nor the construction industry can afford to be complacent. We enable our clients to operate at the vanguard of digital construction technology in New Zealand & Australia.


Our clients include building owners, project management and construction companies, MEP contractors, architects, facility managers and suppliers of construction products.

NZ International Convention Centre, Auckland

BuildBIM, in collaboration with Redbike and McKay, provided Electrical BIM Coordination & Modelling services on the New Zealand International Convention Centre (NZICC) in Auckland. This is a $700M facility with 32,000m² of state-of-the-art convention facilities.


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.
