Report on 3D Spatial and BIM Data Use Case Requirements of the Hong Kong Construction Industry


The CIC commenced a Consultancy Study on the 3D spatial and BIM data use case requirements of the construction industry for the development of Digital Hong Kong to the HKSAR Government in early 2020. The Study aims to accelerate the development of 3D Digital Hong Kong for the construction industry and in support of Government’s initiative of developing Smart City and Common Spatial Data Infrastructure (CSDI), by collecting the 3D Spatial and BIM data use case requirements by the local construction industry. The consultancy has been completed in 2021 and a Report is made available for reference by the industry. The CIC will identify and take appropriate actions to follow up the recommendations given in the Report.

CIC BIM Exchange Information Requirements (EIR) Template (BIM Specifications) (Version 1.1 – 2021)


This EIR Template (Version 1.1 – 2021) supersedes the previous publication (December 2020). The purpose of this document is to provide users with a standard Exchange Information Requirements (EIR) Template based on ISO 19650-1, which is required for service agreements or contracts following CIC BIM Standards and methodology depending on the type, scope and other Appointing Parties' requirements for those projects. Users are advised to go through the EIR Template and customise them for their specific project application. This EIR Template should be used in conjunction with the CIC BIM Standards – General (Version 2.1 - 2021). CIC BIM Standards - General (Version 2.1 - 2021) Users may make reference to Sample Project EIR for Planning & Design Stages and Construction Stage (Appendix 1 & 2). As they customise the BIM EIR Template for their specific project application, adjust or amend the contents to satisfy their purposes and needs.
