BIM is a game changing way of working which is having a profound effect on the global construction sector. A cooperation involving all countries with similar tools harmonised, processes and rules which is reducing costs and improving efficiency. 2019 is named as the BIM Year by Construction Industry Council (CIC), aiming to enhance awareness and encourage collaboration of industry on BIM adoption. In order to bolster BIM and Smart City development in Hong Kong, British Standards Institution (BSI), the Faculty of Architecture of the University of Hong Kong (HKUFoA) and Professional Construction Strategies Group (PCSG) will jointly hold the Digital Infrastructure and Construction Summit 2019. In 2017, the HKSAR Government decreed that BIM technology must be used in the design and construction of all major government capital works projects and this has generated a surge in demand for BIM personnel and training needs.
