As a keen advocate of Building Information Modeling (BIM) technology, CHAIN Technology Development has joined the RICS BIM Conference for a consecutive year. This year, CHAIN participated in a panel discussion to share its experience on using BIM to achieve construction management efficiency and its vision for the “Construction 2.0” strategy.
The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) hosted the BIM Conference titled “BIM as an enabler of transformation in the built environment” on 23 July 2019. The conference this year was a response to the government’s initiation to introduce technological innovation to the construction industry.
In the panel discussion section, Jackie Wong, Head of Business Development at CHAIN, joined other speakers to talk on the topic of “Digitisation and BIM data for building lifecycle management efficiency”. She pointed out that BIM does not only benefit the planning, design, and monitoring of a construction project, but also for monitoring utilities consumption and relevant maintenance of real estate. “We believe BIM is just the beginning of the new construction era. With the ability to collaborate with other technologies, the realisation of the concept BIM+ would bring countless benefits to the construction industry.” Jackie said.
The government launched the HKD 1 billion Construction Innovation and Technology Fund in 2018, which created a strong motivation for the industry to modernize and upgrade. In the same vein, CHAIN would keep pushing the adoption of BIM within and beyond the construction industry as an effort to lay the foundation of a better Smart City in Hong Kong.
