Fiordland Heli-Barge

3D Revit modelling enables 'virtual build' of complex fabrication project

BMC were requested by Alpine Helicopters to provide detailed design and documentation to enable the fabrication of a ‘kitset’ floating pontoon barge facility fully self sufficient with landing capability for 2 x helicopters, fishing boat birthing along side for provisioning, fueling pods, crew quarters and storage facilities. Working with a naval architect BMC analysed the structure using SAP2000 software and produced a 3D Revit model of all construction details and plant facilities enabling full fabrication review and materials takeoff leading to competitive and confident construction pricing.

The Heli-Barge is now fully operational in Fiordland.
