Following the HK Government announcement for adoption of Building Information Modelling (BIM) for Capital Works Projects earlier this year, adoption of BIM by key players in the private sector will predict to be increased dramatically.

The desire to reduce capital and operational costs is a pivotal driver for change. BIM can support the adoption of collaborative behaviours and practices, connecting intelligent design to information-based technologies to unlock efficient ways of working throughout the project life-cycle.

In this training course, you will be introduced what 5D BIM is and understand how it can apply to construction cost management process. You will also learn about the essential skills for BIM-based quantity take-off (QTO).
