Production of BIM Object Guide - General Requirements (June 2018)


(Superseded by Production of BIM Object Guide - General Requirements (August 2019) ) Building Information Modelling (BIM) is not just a three-dimensional drawing tool but a new tool to holistically manage information relating to construction projects from planning stage, to design, construction and operational stages. It is a new way of working using new technology to facilitate project management and execution, better construction process control, cross-disciplinary collaboration, internal coordination, external communication, problem solving, decision making support, productivity management, and risk management. BIM is a way of working – it facilitates construction professionals to work together and communicate in one PLATFORM and all team members should be working to the same standards. BIM creates value from the combined efforts of people, process and technology. Development Bureau of The Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region issued Technical Circular (Works) No. 7/2017 Adoption of Building Information Modelling for Capital Works Projects in Hong Kong which takes effect from January 2018. The Circular sets out the policy and requirements on the adoption of Building Information Modelling (BIM) technology and applies to works to works either by in-house government staff, consultants or contractors. The Circular has mandatory requirements for the BIM use of drawing production at design phase and construction phase. Drawing production is the most important and concerned deliverable of industry, both statutorily and contractually. A value driven BIM should be able to generate drawing production set for presentation, statutory and tender purpose. A BIM project is made up of a lot of BIM objects such as walls, floors, columns, window, door, furniture or even a picture on the wall. To achieve the drawing production objective, a digital component that contains both geometry and non-geometry information of a product or element in the building needs to be standardised. This Guide is intended to standardise the minimum requirement of the production of BIM objects for BIM object creators such as manufacturers, material suppliers and software vendors, etc in the construction industry. Standardising the production of BIM object is a pre-requisition to the compilation of a comprehensive and usable BIM object library to improve the productivity, quality and efficiency of BIM process to facilitate the design and construction of the projects.

Building Information Modelling Standards (Phase One) (September 2015)


(Superseded by CIC BIM Standards - General (August 2019) ) The Standards was designed to enable a client to specify, manage and assess BIM deliverables by architects, engineers, surveyors and contractors. The use of the CIC BIM Standards should ensure that project deliverables produced using the BIM processess achieve an agreed level of quality.

CIC BIM Standards for Mechanical Electrical and Plumbing (August 2019)


(The zip file contains the BIM Standards and the LOD Responsibility Matrix) This document sets out the BIM Standards for Mechanical Electrical and Plumbing (MEP) and it should also be read in conjunction with the CIC BIM Standards – General. The appropriate Level of Development (LOD) for adoption of a BIM Standards is a controversial topic, especially in the MEP discipline. It is necessary to define a standard and align the industry with a consistent and mutual understanding, to avoid causing misunderstanding and ambiguities among clients and project teams that may lead to additional effort, time and cost. This BIM Standards is focused on LOD which is software neutral. The LOD framework and approach set out in this BIM Standards apply to the MEP discipline.

CIC BIM Standards - General (August 2019)


The Standards is designed to enable project client / owner to specify, manage and assess BIM deliverables by the services providers such as architects, engineers, surveyors and contractors. The use of the CIC BIM Standards should ensure that project deliverables produced using the BIM processes achieve an agreed level of quality. The title of the document is renamed from “CIC BIM Standards (Phase One)” to “CIC BIM Standards - General”. This amendment revision is to in line with the new BIM Standards for MEP & Underground Utilities.
