Webinar: Implementing BIM - a QS Perspective

12:00pm Tuesday, 12 March 2024
1:00pm Tuesday, 12 March 2024

In February 2011 a magnitude 6.3 earthquake caused severe damage to Christchurch Cathedral, completely destroying the tower, and severely weakening the entire building. Early in 2019 the reinstatement commenced with the project team making extensive use of Building Information Modelling (BIM) to understand, and plan, various aspects of the project.

BIM allows for collaborative workflows, enabling quantity surveyors, architects, engineers, contractors and other construction experts to plan, design, and build a building or structure within a single 3D model.

This webinar will examine how BIM is being used to assist with the reinstatement of Christchurch Cathedral. Additionally, we will review tips and tricks on how BIM can be implemented by quantity surveyors.
