Construction Digitalisation Roadmap for Hong Kong
The Construction Industry Council (CIC) of Hong Kong was set up with the main function of forging consensus on long-term strategic issues, conveying the industrys needs and aspirations to Government, as well as providing a communication channel for Government to solicit advice on all construction-related matters. The CIC developed itself as a Centre of Excellence for BIM, formulating strategies for market transformation and promoting cross-discipline collaboration and wider adoption of BIM. The CIC provides support to the industry in five aspects, promotion on BIM adoption, training, standards, guidelines and specifications, BIM personnel certification and BIM courses accreditation, and BIM-related researches using the CIC Research Fund.
To lead Hong Kong’s construction industry into a new digital era, the Construction Industry Council has worked with key industry stakeholders to prepare the Roadmap. The vision is set SMART Construction Empowered by Digitalisation: all processes involved in the built asset lifecycle are streamlined and digitalised to continuously improve productivity and safety during planning, design, construction and operation, and sustainability for better quality of life.
The Construction Digitalisation Roadmap serves as a reference material for industry practitioners to facilitate construction digitalisation in Hong Kong. The Roadmap has been developed through extensive consultations with industry stakeholders. Between mid-2020 and early 2021, surveys, interviews and forums were conducted to gather ideas and create a consensus to drive digitalisation forward. The Roadmap summarises the background, approach, strategies and action plans based on extensive industry consultations, and finishes with key milestones and a way forward regarding the development of construction digitalisation in Hong Kong. Digitalisation in Hong Kong and as part of this Roadmap is all about leveraging technologies to continuously improve business processes. The CIC will regularly monitor and review the implementation of the Roadmap.
