Construction efficiency through digital excellence

Te Pae - Christchurch Convention Centre - BIM

Convention centres present a singular design challenge. Historically they have been large, closed off spaces in prominent urban locations that consume rather than contribute culture. For a city finding its identity after the devastating earthquakes, the design of Te Pae needed to deliver much, much more and the BIM services provided by WAM were a big part of the project’s success.
The project is a testament to the team’s ability to create a functional convention centre that remains deeply anchored within its place, offering an immersive experience for all who enter.
