    Purpose This report, prepared by the Working Group on Roadmap for BIM Implementation (Working Group) established under the Committee on Environment and Technology of the Construction Industry Council (CIC), summarises the views of the Working Group on the strategic implementation of Building Information Modelling (BIM) in Hong Kongs construction industry. The purpose of this report is:

    1. to share the experience of construction industry practitioners in their use

    of BIM in Hong Kong;

    2. to present the industrys views and concerns on the current adoption of BIM in Hong Kong construction industry;

    3. to realise the global trend of adopting BIM in the construction industry;

    4. to summarise the benefits and constraints of adopting BIM in Hong Kong;

    5. to facilitate industrial stakeholders to prepare themselves towards the

    adoption of the BIM at their own accords; and

    6. to propose the way forward for the strategic implementation of the BIM in Hong Kong;

    As this report is not meant to be a submission to the relevant government authorities for seeking financial support or financial commitment on the adoption of BIM, no vigorous quantitative analysis on the cost and benefit of adopting BIM in Hong Kong is presented though reference is made to the experience of overseas countries which have been implementing BIM for years. For instance, McGraw-Hill Construction has recently published a survey and study on the business value of BIM infrastructure projects for Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) in USA which provide statistical information how BIM can bring about positive impact on the design, construction and operation of projects. Cabinet Office of UK Government has also published an Investors Report that illustrates measurable benefits of the BIM adoption.

    Facilities Management, being a complicated issue at this stage for its integration with the design and construction phases, has not been included in this phase of the study for the sake of simplifying the study and facilitating earlier release of the study result that the industry stakeholders has been awaiting.

    Executive Summary

    Building Information Modelling (BIM) is not just a three dimensional drawing tool but a new tool to holistically manage information relating to construction projects from preparatory stage, to construction and operational stages. It is a new way of working, using new technology to facilitate project management and execution, better construction process control, cross-disciplinary collaboration, internal coordination, external communication, problem solving, and risk management. Fast Pace in Global Development The adoption of BIM has already been a global trend, just naming a few examples below: USA

    - The General Services Administration requires mandatory BIM submission for government projects since 2008. They are mature in using BIM and are leading BIM practice.

    Singapore

    - They determined national-wide implementation roadmap in 2011; and now require mandatory use of BIM from 2015 onwards.

    United Kingdom

    - Government requires mandatory use of BIM in public sector from 2016 onwards. They target themselves to become BIM leader in European region.

    Mainland China

    - BIM has been included as part of the National 12th Five Year Plan (2011 2015) and is formulating a BIM framework.

    Other 10+ Countries

    - Majority of European countries, Canada and South Korea require the use of BIM in public construction projects, and, some of them set up agencies to manage national-wide implementation and introduced good practices and standards.

    Compared with international practice of BIM with respect to planning, adoption, technology and performance, Hong Kong is lagging behind majority of developed countries. Hong Kongs construction industry is strongly encouraged to take leap to catch up the fast pace of the global adoption of BIM so as to maintain the competitiveness of Hong Kongs Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) services in the region and even in the world. Without sufficient manpower with suitable skill-set and associated facilities of BIM, Hong Kongs AEC corporate would be difficult to compete for jobs and projects outside Hong Kong market in foreseeable future. Hong Kongs Construction Industry Is Getting Ready BIM implementation in construction industry in Hong Kong is still in the primary stage in terms of the scale of application. In fact, individual practitioners have been gearing up themselves to prepare for the new era of BIM to different extents. Some are fast movers and getting almost ready for adoption, while some are observers and keeping close eyes on the utilisation of BIM. The current situation of major disciplines relating to the adoption of BIM is as follows: Private Developer

    - Majority of major developers have adopted BIM to different extents such as development project planning, setting the use of BIM as a mandatory requirement for the design of particular developments. The Real Estate Developers Association of Hong Kong encourages their members to adopt BIM.

    Public Client

    - Hong Kong Housing Authority, MTR Corporation, Hong Kong Airport Authority have already been adopting BIM already; and they are moving forward in fast pace. Buildings Department has commissioned a consultancy study on "Feasibility Study on the Implementation of an Electronic Submission System in the Buildings Department" and BIM is one of the electronic submission formats being evaluated in the study.

    Development Bureau is exploring the types of public construction projects which can effectively apply BIM, and initiating pilot projects to use BIM.

    Architect

    - Majority of architect firms are getting almost ready for the adoption, some of which are even expertise in BIM.

    Engineer

    - Majority of engineering consulting firms are getting almost ready for the adoption, some of which are even expertise in BIM.

    Surveyor

    - In the stage of developing good practices for BIM adoption in surveying; and considering offer value-added service through BIM.

    Contractor

    - Majority of major contractors have been trying out the use of BIM to improve site safety, work scheduling, cost control, and constructability analysis.

    Training Institute

    - VTC has already included BIM training in their construction related Higher Diploma programmes. Some universities are offering optional BIM courses in their degree programmes. CIC has incorporated fundamental BIM knowledge in some of their training programmes for frontline site staff.

    Recently, some organisations and companies in Hong Kong are taking a step forward in the use of BIM e.g. 5-D BIM with the inclusion of time and cost of projects, application for site safety, integration of BIM and GIS, etc, with a wider application of Information Technology in the construction industry.
