Event Details

BIM as an enabler of digital transformation in the built environment

What will this conference explore?

The digitalisation phenomenon continues to sweep the world as technology transforms the way we work and live, including in the built environment industry via Building Information Modelling (BIM). In 2018, the Hong Kong government mandated that capital works projects with project estimates over HK$30 Million shall use BIM technology.

The issue now isn’t whether we should use it – it’s how we can unlock its potential further. How do we combine BIM with new construction methods? How do we implement universal standards of best practice, and what will those standards be? How do we combine BIM use with other technologies? How can the data gathered be used in a growing push for more “smart city” development?


In this conference, will cover a range of topics to ensure delegates gain an in-depth, practical understanding of BIM practices, opportunities and challenges going forward – while also learning how to directly apply key takeaways to their work through practical case studies.

Why 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.
