Building Information Modelling (BIM) is the process of generating and managing building data during its life cycle. Typically, it uses three-dimensional, real-time, dynamic building modelling software to increase productivity in building design and construction. The process produces the Building Information Model (also abbreviated BIM), which encompasses building geometry, spatial relationships, geographic information, and quantities and properties of building components.
Ir. Francis Leung is the Founding Chairman of HKIBIM and director of BIM department of a multi-disciplinary consulting engineering company. He will give our members an introduction and update of BIM development in the construction industry of Hong Kong and discuss, using structural element as example, the constraints and approaches to achieve accuracy in quantities take-off from BIM model.
