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, Mr. Matthew Cheung, Chief Secretary for Administration of the HKSAR Government has outlined the following in his keynote speech:

“BIM helps avoid changes in the construction process and thus reduce wastage during construction.  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.”

RICS BIM Conference returns for 2019 with a renewed focus on the role of the profession play in transforming our built environment. Delegates will discuss the benefits of better collaborative and cross-disciplinary working, including cost and waste reductions and safer, more productive working practices. With over 200 delegates expected, the event will provide a platform for in depth evaluation of the vital challenges and opportunities presented by continued modernisation in the industry.
