In view of potential benefits that Building Information Modeling (BIM) technology may bring to our building project management and following the guidance from the DEVB, ArchSD has generated its BIM Adoption Roadmap to cover a 5-year period from 2014/15 to 2018/19.
A Departmental BIM Task Force was established in 2012 to explore the impacts associated with the implementation of BIM in project management. Equipped with BIM hardware and software, we have set up a dedicated staff training facility to deliver BIM training ranging from introductory to advanced level.
ArchSD adopts an incremental approach to gradually introduce BIM in public works projects and continue the trial projects of different nature, scale or complexity. As of May 2014, we have identified five BIM pilot projects in different work stages for the trial run. The findings on using BIM will be evaluated in detail for formulating the way forward. In July 2014, we were grateful to receive an Autodesk BIM Award (Honourable Mention) for the use of BIM in recording of historic buildings. With the accumulation of BIM-related technical competence, we expect that the scope and extent of BIM trial projects would be increased.
