BIM Smooths the Way on Tough Terrain

Sun Hung Kai Properties finds BIM model helps overcome challenges of building luxury housing on challenging hillside site Sun Hung Kai Properties is creating a residential development project that includes five seven-storey residential and nineteen three-storey individual houses, along with two basement car parks and a private clubhouse with swimming pool. This may seem straightforward on flat land, but the project site is a steep Hong Kong hillside. (Directed from Autodesk Hong Kong BIM Awards 2017:

AIM - Archaeological Information Modeling Unveil the Covered Remnants through BIM

This project is a proposed development in Kai Tak Development Area with significant archaeological content. The project aims to provide a landscaped open space within a 30-metre wide Preservation Corridor for heritage conservation and public appreciation of the Lung Tsun Stone Bridge remnants in situ at Kai Tak. The remnants were backfilled with soil and were fully covered in 2012 by CEDD. No remnants can be seen currently on site. As there are remnants in the site, a Heritage Impact Study is required to assess the archaeological impact arising from the design and construction and to propose any necessary mitigation measures at the design stage for the approval by Antiquities Advisory Board.

The Town Plaza Urban Design Study for the Establishment of the Kwu Tung North, New Development Area

The Hong Kong government decided to create new development areas (NDAs) to address long-term housing demands. AECOM Asia Co. was engaged as the planning, design, and construction consultant for the NDA in Kwu Tung North. The estimated HKD 100 million project will cover 4.5 square kilometers and will accommodate 119,600 people, becoming one of the most densely populated towns in Hong Kong. The project team used ContextCapture and OpenBuildings Designer to create 3D spatial models for stakeholders. LumenRT helped conduct analyses to show a 360-degree view of design’s ability to withstand wind and seasonal weather. During design review, the team made about 10 significant and 50 minor design changes directly in the model. In 2018, the design was finalized.

Real Practice of Adopting BIM with Integrated Project Delivery

Kerry Properties Limited (KPL) has been adopting Building Information Modelling (BIM) since 2006, resulting from the benefits of BIM Usage such as reducing rework, better predictability, reducing errors, etc. From the past BIM project experiences, it was found that the core value was not grounded to the working team or to the project directly due to the fragmental execution process to treat the information and model, so Kerry's Project Management Team has an intention to take this project as a pioneer to experiment of implementing BIM process entirely cross along the project life-cycle of this property development. "The objective is to integrate the objectives and responsibilities of all stakeholders across the entire BIM spectrum in order to bringing out the true potential in application of BIM." said Executive Director – Mr. Wilkie Lee from the Project Management Department of Kerry Properties (H.K.) Limited. When it comes to transforming the process to break through the traditional workflow such as implementing BIM, resource investment is inevitable whether government or developers as the top of supply chain.

Full Building Life Cycle Approach with Open BIM and Open Data Concept

As part of the "Conserving Central" initiative proposed in the 2009-10 Policy Address, the Urban Renewal Authority was commissioned by the HKSAR Government to revitalize the Central Market, a grade 3 historic building. The Project involves the alteration and addition works for conservation and adaptive reuse of the existing reinforced concrete market building which is more than 80 years old. A minimum intervention approach is adopted to conserve the Central Market without affecting the existing foundation, structure and façade as well as architectural and historical significant building elements.

CIC-Zero Carbon Park – Integration of BIM-AM with IoT

Being the largest MEP government maintenance agency in Hong Kong, EMSD currently operates and maintains more than 8,000 government buildings. In 2016, to streamline the fault localization process for Building Operation & Maintenance (O&M), EMSD and CIC developed a tailormade BIM-AM System in which a novel architecture for managing decentralized building facilities information was proposed, by exploiting the information interoperability and reusability among Building Information Modelling, System Topology, Radio Frequency Identification technology, and real-time data acquisition system interfaces including Building Management System, IoT wireless sensors and Closed Circuit Television system. Crossplatform mobile and desktop systems have been developed based on the proposed architecture. The benefits to O&M was proven with around 15% time-saving compared with the traditional workflow.
