Beca wins Gold Medal for Auckland project using cloud-based BIM delivery method

by Jessica Denman, Construction Industry Lead on August 31, 2017

The use of BIM 360 construction software on Beca’s Mason Bros project recently earned them the Gold prize for the 2017 INNOVATE NZ Awards. Beca’s innovative use of Autodesk technology encapsulated the benefits of capturing critical information during the construction phase. By using BIM 360 Glue and Field, Beca was able to ultimately improve handover, operations, and maintenance with BIM 360 Ops. 

The Mason Bros building sits within the Wynyard Quarter’s Innovation Precinct (WQIP) in Auckland, NZ. The complex offers a unique space for commercial development within a sustainable and state-of-the-art environment. Beca incorporated the philosophy of WQIP into the construction of this urban innovation center by leveraging BIM models and construction data to capture asset information for facilities management. 

While some of the most advanced projects today are leveraging BIM for Design and Construction, Beca provided their client with the information necessary to leverage BIM through the entire building lifecycle. This ultimately allows for greater efficiencies while managing maintenance and finances during operations.
