The Hong Kong Housing Authority (HA) is a statutory body established in April 1973 under the Housing Ordinance. The HA develops and implements a public housing programme which seeks to achieve the Government’s policy objective of meeting the housing needs of low-income families that cannot afford private accommodation. The HA plans, builds, manages and maintains different types of public housing, including rental housing, interim housing and transit centres. In addition, the HA owns and operates a number of flatted factories and ancillary commercial and other non-domestic facilities.
The HA has started piloting BIM since 2006. They have use BIM for design visualisation and progressively moved forward to other stages to benefit the chain of stakeholders along the building life cycle, from design to documentation, construction and facility management. Through the use of BIM, they have improved the building quality by optimizing their planning and designs, improving coordination, and reducing construction waste and enhancing workersÂ’ safety. BIM has now become one of the most important tools and platforms in the development of public housing projects in Hong Kong.
