The largest government co-location project in NZ’s history required an integrated BIM approach

Te Omeka - Christchurch Justice and Emergency Services Precinct - Advanced BIM

The precinct brings together justice and emergency services in one purpose-built, world-class facility. It is the largest multi-agency government co-location project in New Zealand’s history, comprising three main buildings: a justice building, an emergency services building, and a parking building for operational vehicles. The complex includes 19 courtrooms and a purpose-built emergency operations centre. With an advanced approach to seismic design and built to an ‘Importance Level 4’ standard, it provides resilience by design. Not only was WAM the architect and lead consultant, but also the independent principal BIM consultant and project BIM manager.
The precinct has been designed to IL4 standard, ensuring that it will withstand significant seismic events and remain in operation to provide central services to the Christchurch community.
