Hilti Jaibot: A Game Changer in Construction

28 May 2024

The BIMSafe team were recently in Dunedin filming case study videos for the ACC Ōtepoti Project, and while we were there, we had the opportunity to pop across the road and visit the new Dunedin Hospital Outpatients Project, currently under construction by Southbase.

On site was the brand-new Hilti jaibot, a semi-autonomous drilling robot approximately large quad bike.  Currently there are over 40 units globally which have been used on over 150 projects, and only three in Australasia . The machine is designed to be driven to the chosen drilling area by the operator using the track-based system and once switched back to drilling mode, the autonomous side of the machine takes over drilling all holes within a 2m radius of the main column in the given dimeter.

The design of the outpatients building has a significant amount of earthquake bracing to support the services structures in the ceiling space. According to the project team, the outpatients building has the biggest seismic support package ever installed in New Zealand. Approximately 40,000 holes are required to be drilled in the concrete floor to provide the anchors for the seismic supports and partition walls.
