This $8.3m gymnasium is a single storey portal framed building at RNZAF Base Whenuapai. WSP provided a complete design service including: architecture, structural, mechanical, hydraulic, fire, civil and electrical engineering; security and Communications ICT.
We are also helping NZDF with advice on the best way forward to realise the potential benefits of Building Information Modelling (BIM) which can be brought into the property management environment.
Working alongside NZDF throughout this pilot project, we provided briefing assistance and advice on BIM, including lessons learnt analysis at the end. The learnings from this project will be applied to create a BIM template methodology for all future NZ Defence Force projects.
