Programme Highlights

Since 2017, the Government of Hong Kong is firmly committed to the promotion and adoption of BIM technology in capital works projects with a view to enhancing the design, construction, project management, asset management and improving the overall productivity of the construction industry.


The recent DEVB Technical Circular dated 20th December 2021 enhanced the implementation requirements for BIM adoption in response to WDs' feedback and strength of the BIM workflow, requirements for adoption of Common Data Environment (CDE), BI data harmonization and information security of project data. The BIM specifications constitute a significant part of projects nowadays and a proper understanding of the BIM uses and its context is essential to all stakeholders running the project successfully.


It is our honour to invite Mr. Kevin Wong (Chairman of HKIBIM), Ir Tsui Wai (Principal Project Coordinator of MWPMO, Highways Department), and Mr Ernest Chan (Resident Engineer/Civil of DSD Contract no. DE/2017/01) as the speakers of this webinar.
