Case Study: Christ Church Cathedral – Safety-focused Reality Capture And 3D Building Monitoring.
Andrew Sinclair, Beca.
Detail: Since 2019, the Beca survey team have been providing 3D solutions at the Christ Church Cathedral, which suffered extensive earthquake damage in 2011, which is a significant project that will continue for several more years. The reinstatement will include seismic strengthening and base isolation to meet 100 percent of the new building code. Beca has supported the project with safety-focussed reality capture and 3D building monitoring.

Case Study: BIM For Safety On Auckland’s City Rail Link Project
Dean Burke, Technical Director – Digital Engineering, WSP. Detail: BIM has been used extensively in the City Rail Link project in Auckland, including many innovations aimed specifically at improving safety. Project challenges include working underground and in constrained spaces, complex services requirements, a tightly bounded urban environment, and continued occupation and use of connected and surrounding facilities, all of which have made safety management a high priority.

The BIM model provided the visualisations to simulate day-to-day operation and use, and responses to emergency situations. This allows potential hazards and conflicts to be identified and mitigated before they occur in the construction process and during operation of the facilities. It has also been used for the preparation of VR and other training material, assisting train drivers and other key stakeholders to become familiar with the environment.

Case Study: ACC Ōtepoti Project – BIM: A New Resource For Health and Safety
Christo Erasmus and Mikko Anzano, Steel & Tube. Detail: In today’s high-tech and evolving market, BIM has become one of the most important tools for the construction sector: from initial concept to end of life of a building. Steel & Tube Reinforcing, as one of the main suppliers of steel products in NZ, has always been fully committed to workplace safety and building a strong H&S culture. We are now determined to play our part in this evolving market: we have embraced BIM technologies to help deliver better products to our clients while also improving Health and Safety, from production in our workshops to installation on site.

Case Study: Seeing The Unseen
Robin Findlay, Digital Engineering Manager, Auckland Airport Detail: Auckland Airport is undergoing significant development right across its campus, involving many interfaces and working in an environment that is often operational 24/7. Being able to see what has been built in the past and what is coming in the future is critical to reducing risks across the multibillion-dollar infrastructure development programme.

In this presentation, Robin highlights some of the work being done using BIM and gaming software to help people see more clearly what is coming in the future and better understand how they will need to operate.

Knowing what sits beneath the surface is critical in improving H&S outcomes during construction by helping to avoid unnecessary service strikes. Robin will share Auckland Airport’s proactive approach in improving the quality and reliability of the information it manages about underground utilities.

Case Study: How Can The H&S Person Use BIM To Their Advantage?
Speaker: Jen Dransfield, Health & Safety Advisor – Naylor Love Canterbury Ltd Detail: In her presentation, Jen will give a brief overview of how BIM has assisted her in Safety in Design processes during the stabilisation phase of the Christ Church Cathedral Reinstatement Project and discuss how it has contributed to much safer outcomes for workers on the ground.

Case Study: Leading the Recovery Safely with the use of Digital Tools’, Worley’s Experience
Eduardo Bermudez , Senior Manager – Digital Advisory , Worley Detail: Post cyclone Gabrielle’s devastating effect on the Hawke’s Bay region in Feb 2023, the site of one of Worley’s major clients was impacted significantly. Ed Bermudez, Worley’s Digital Advisory lead, utilised 360 imagery techniques to baseline the extent of the damage and help determine the appropriate solutions to make site safe, while planning and track progress of the remediation works.

In this presentation Ed will share the tools, techniques, and benefits that our suite of Digital Tools can provide to the industry when site access is restricted.
