Construction Digitalisation Webinar aims at promoting the latest construction digitalisation-related information to stakeholders. Every time, we have a different theme to introduce stakeholders about the latest information or solutions in a particular area. We are glad to have the participation CivilConnect Limited to introduce their solution. Outline of the webinar (information provided by vendor): OpenSpace AI - Vision Engine automates turning images into reality capture. Your site, FULLY CAPTURED! Now, photo documentation can be done and delivered in minutes, not days. Photo documentation used to be a highly manual and time-consuming process, but it doesn't have to be anymore. New visual documentation tools from OpenSpace use AI and computer vision to bring you a faster, simpler, and more thorough way to document work completeness and quality while also helping to prevent costly disputes and reworks. This technology, the OpenSpace Vision Engine, also makes job site management easier overall, enabling greater accountability, transparency, and productivity in the field with a single source of truth. In this webinar, we will walk through how to use OpenSpace and benefiting from faster and more frequent image capture and rapid processing time. You'll hear how moving to OpenSpace led to measurably improved coordination and stakeholder collaboration, more efficient workflows, better quality, reduced waste and risk, and more.

CIC Webinar on BIM Competition 2024 Briefing

24/01/2024 | 14:30 – 17:00


The Construction Industry Council (CIC) has been organising the CIC BIM Competition annually since 2019, providing an excellent platform for the younger generation to enhance their knowledge and skills in BIM and showcase their talent. The competition aims to promote the practical use of Building Information Modelling (BIM) through a collaborative and competitive learning approach among tertiary students in construction-related disciplines. Now in its sixth year, "CIC BIM Competition 2024" aims to challenge participants' creativity and innovation in designing a CIC Innovation Academy and applying BIM technologies. The competition is open to full-time higher education (post-secondary) students and part-time students pursuing top-up degrees. Teams must be formed with a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 6 members from at least 2 construction disciplines. By participating in this competition, students will have opportunities to learn various BIM software with free licenses through attending hands-on training webinars. Mentors with a professional background will provide guidance and support for participating teams. This briefing will announce the competition details, providing information and tips to interested participants to prepare for the competition and gain a better understanding of BIM. Speakers: Representatives – Industry Development, Construction Industry Council Should there be any queries, please contact Mr. LEUNG at 3199 7145 or via email bim@cic.hk.

CD Webinar on OpenBIM-Based Design Optimization and Prefabrication Automation of Steel Reinforcement

28/12/2023 | 16:30 - 17:30


OpenBIM provides extensive support across different phases of a project's lifecycle, promoting the seamless exchange of information across various applications. It has been applied in advancing offsite construction by optimizing the design and streamlining the prefabrication process. With growing academic and industrial interest in offsite construction, the Hong Kong government has policies to encourage the adoption of offsite prefabrication and the use of prefabricated steel reinforcement components. In this webinar, the speakers will present an openBIM-based approach which integrates clash-free design optimization with automation in prefabrication, using steel reinforcement as an illustrative example. This approach includes an IFC-based integrated workflow that improves interoperability between BIM software, structural analysis programs, and rebar optimization plugins. Provided the workflow, the designed BIM model can be conveniently used in supporting the element connectivity analysis and optimizing the clash-free layout of steel reinforcement. To bridge the gap between rebar design and prefabrication, the proposed openBIM approach further leverages the Information Delivery Manual (IDM) to determine the specific information and data exchange requirements for rebar fabrication. Model View Definition (MVD) and an extended IFC schema, based on IFC4Add2, are proposed to represent the required attributes and entities for rebar fabrication. The extended IFC schema is then mapped with rebar precast data format (BVBS), enabling the generation of machine codes for automated cut and bent rebar production. This openBIM approach aids in seamless data transformation across different platforms, facilitating automation in design optimization and enhancing productivity in prefabrication.
