Innovation is of great importance to the sustainable development of the Hong Kong construction industry, Hence, the Construction Industry Council (CIC) has set up the Research and Technology Development Fund to provide financial support for research projects which can improve the performance and competitiveness of the industry.


"BIM-based Rebar Design Optimisation and Prefabrication Automation" is one of the research projects funded by CIC and conducted by the Department of Civil and Environment Engineering of HKUST.


The objectives of the research project are to:

  • Develop an innovative optimisation approach for automated clash-free steel reinforcement design and to generate the three dimensional rebar BIM model, and
  • Develop an automated BIM-based framework to generate the rebar detailing drawings and factory machine codes for rebar prefabrication.

We are delighted and honored to have Prof. Jack CHENG and Dr. Vincent J.L. GAN as our guest speakers. They will share the methodology, progress and the expected deliverables of the project in this webinar.
