Digitisation and the intersection of technologies are transforming the management of buildings and the built environment globally. The creation of the $1 billion Construction Innovation and Technology Fund last year clearly signalled the Hong Kong government’s intention to drive further modernisation of the industry.

Speaking at RICS Hong Kong Annual Conference on 24 May, Chief Secretary for Administration of the HKSAR Government Mr Matthew Cheung has outlined the following in his keynote speech:

"BIM helps avoid changes in the construction process and thus reduce wastage during construction," said Matthew Cheung Kin-chung at our recent Annual Conference. "To take the lead, the government has mandated the use of BIM technology in the design and construction of major government capital works projects since last year and expanded the scope of its application this year. In 2018, BIM provisions were included in more than 100 works tenders and consultancies."

As an advocate for innovation and embracing technology to raise industry standards, we support the widespread adoption of BIM to drive better outcomes in the built environment industry. This year's conference will offer a platform for a diverse range of professionals to share their knowledge and expertise on the benefits and application of BIM technology.

Why you should attend

Latest government policies

The government’s commitment to the “Construction 2.0” strategy is evident with initiatives like the $1 billion Construction Innovation and Technology Fund, adopting BIM technologies in major government capital works projects, and more. Learn what opportunities there are for professionals to take part and what the wider effects could be for the industry.

Application of BIM

BIM technology has been in use for over a decade in Hong Kong, with past successes inspiring increased adoption. Get an “insider view” and edge over the competition by learning how developers and construction companies use BIM successfully, while also learning about the latest innovations in site/construction management across luxury housing, office building complex and public housing projects.

Latest developments in digitisation and building technologies intersections

Technology is changing rapidly. A constant flow of new ideas and innovations in digitisation and building technologies is making it more important than ever before for professionals to stay “in the know”. Understanding what the best market solution available is for your project is good for business. Discover new offerings and how 5D BIM, UAV, GIS, 3D-mapping are coming together.

Building life-cycle management efficiency

After an intensive day covering government strategies, case studies and the latest solutions, a closing panel will bring together everything discussed and contextualise what all the key takeaways — how BIM helps plan, track and improve building life-cycle management for better quantifiable outcomes — will mean for the industry’s future and standard practices.
