Event Name : Sharing the awarded dissertation of “A study on the cost and time implications brought by the integration of BIM and RFID asset tagging technologies for facility management in Hong Kong
CPD Code : Formal Events
Speaker : Mr. Cheung Yiu Him, Matthew
Matthew is a graduate of Technological and Higher Education Institute of Hong Kong (THEi), who obtained the first class honour in 2020. He has joined Rider Levett Bucknall Limited as Quantity Surveyor since July 2020. Over the 4 years of study in THEi, he acquired the knowledge and experience in different field of construction industry including property and facility management, quantity surveying and computer-aided design for buildings.

Carrying out a comprehensive research regarding the use of Building Information Management (BIM) and Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technologies in his graduate dissertation, he is obtained the 2nd award of Best Dissertation Award for Property and Facility Management Division (PFMD) of HKIS in July 2020. Meanwhile, he was awarded the best student by the Chartered Institute of Housing (Asian Pacific Branch) in recognition of his outstanding performance for his study in THEi. These recognitions encourage him to further delve into the technologies which can potentially improve the living environment in Hong Kong

Details :

Life cycle costing is one of the major considerations in the construction industry, because except for the initial cost involved in the construction stage, the operation cost and maintenance cost in the operation and maintenance (“O&M”) stage are also significant. It is anticipated the new technologies of RFID asset tagging and BIM can be adopted for facility management and hence lower the cost and time of facility management.

On one hand, Building Information Modelling system in asset management (“BIM-AM”) provides valuable as-built information and as-built model to the client, the data and specification of equipment, building elements and components can be input in the model. On the other hand, RFID asset tagging allows the frontline staff to read the tag placed on the equipment or machine, so that relevant maintenance record and operational condition stored in the BIM database can be obtained for the sake of arranging maintenance and better control.

The sharing will mainly focus on the dissertation which thoroughly investigate the cost and time implications brought by the integration of BIM and RFID asset tagging technologies for facility management in Hong Kong. Ranging from introduction of both technologies, to the research methodologies discussion of findings, the sharing will cover the most of the highlights in the dissertation to give the audience a sense of how both technologies could assist facility management
