24 November 2023
Hong Kong BIM Awards organized by Autodesk Far East Limited since 2007. The annual BIM Awards aims at recognizing professionals and educators in the AEC (Architecture, Engineering, and Construction) industry, who are driving the industry's transformation through the use of building information modelling (BIM), and shaping the industry towards a more efficient and sustainable era.
Sau Nga Road Stormwater Storage Scheme – Award Winner
The DSD's project, "Sau Nga Road Stormwater Storage Scheme", has won the Award Winner in the Autodesk Hong Kong BIM Awards 2023. With the aim of further improving the quality of work, the project adopted Building Information Modelling (BIM) in 4D master programme stimulation, method statement stimulation, and maintenance stimulation for the construction of stormwater storage scheme. Through the implementation of BIM, the logistic aspects of the project were strengthened, and the on-site construction duration was shortened, resulting in improved safety and reduced construction risks. Additionally, DSD's pioneering efforts in BIM-based interactive virtual reality public engagement were exemplified by the recreation of Drainy, DSD's key opinion leader, as the AVATAR, facilitating meaningful audience engagement and valuable feedback collection.
Yuen Long Effluent Polishing Plant - Stage 1 – Honorable Mention
At the same time, another DSD's project, "Yuen Long Effluent Polishing Plant - Stage 1" has received the Honorable Mention at the Autodesk Hong Kong BIM Awards 2023. The utilization of BIM technology has enhanced collaboration and communication among stakeholders in the project, leading to improved site supervision, management, and safety. Designers, engineers, construction teams, and the project team of DSD can collaborate on the same BIM model, resulting in more efficient communication and reduced errors and misunderstandings. This collaborative approach has established a solid foundation for successful coordination and cooperation throughout the project.
The awards recognised the project team’s efforts and DSD's long-term commitment to BIM applications on projects. Carrying on the endeavour in BIM application, DSD will continue to drive the industry’s transformation and help shape the industry towards a more efficient and sustainable era.
