Director – NZCE – CIvil

Anthony has been the Cad Manager at Clendon Burns & Park Ltd since 2003. Over this time he has overseen the continuous upgrading of the office CAD system from AutoCAD 2D drawings through Autodesk Architecture Desktop 3D to currently using Revit Structure 3D with Building Information Modelling (BIM) technology.

BIM is a concept where the building information can be easily modified, coordinated and scheduled. Development of in-house software is a key component of this ongoing development.

“One of the real joys of working with BIM technology is the real productivity gains that our clients benefit from” he says.

Amendments and changes are automatically coordinated across all drawing sheets, saving time and money. Contractors are able to view a 3D model to help explain complex construction areas. This helps speed up the construction of the building.
