6.50pm - Presentation 2 - Stephen Grace (Watercare) - BIM Case Study - Watercare Central Interceptor Project

The application of BIM during the Design phase of a large scale infrastructure project. Stephen is the client-side Design manager for the Central Interceptor project, a 4.5m diameter wastewater tunnel that is to be built in the next decade from Mangere to Western Springs with a total length of 13km (making it the longest tunnel in New Zealand) and an associated large pump station at the Mangere wastewater treatment plant. After 5 years the design and consenting of this project is complete and the project is about to be tendered. It has an estimated value of approximately $1 billion.

Stephen is a civil engineer with over 30 years’ experience at Watercare ranging from planning, design and construction management, to asset operation and maintenance. The application of BIM to this project has been applied to the $90 million terminal pump station that will lift flow from the deep tunnel into the treatment works. Stephen will describe why and how the BIM model has developed and the benefits of applying it to this flagship project.
