In the first series - ‘People and Projects’ the Beca Buildings teams have selected projects which highlight their ethos of caring for the future through community focused sustainable design and technical innovation. The selected projects are documented as inspiring case studies highlighting the key features at each level of the building to showcase the buildings overall performance. By speaking with our teams our insights not only show our engineers are sustainably focused they are also humble folk who prefer not to be profiled, rather to place ‘the work’ centre stage. Thus, behind each level of a buildings inspiring features know there is a talented collaborative design team, thinking, making and creating a direct impact to our collective tomorrow.
In our first people and project series we feature the Waipapa Christchurch Hospital with its 838 km of cabling, that’s close to the length of the South Island in electrical cabling in a building with 11 levels and 14 operating theatres!

In series two - ‘The Ultimate’ our engineers took creative license and a little light hearted imaginative thinking to recreate items we use in our everyday lives and it’s in this space that the curious minds of Beca are truly revealed. Our innovative thinkers are always pushing boundaries to find creative solutions to solve complex challenges, even if it’s in good humour. Keep an eye on this imaginative series as we continue to explore making everyday better through connecting people and innovative thinking.

The difference between something good and something great is attention to detail.
