BIM Adoption Survey 2020


The Construction Industry Council (CIC) has conducted a region-based BIM Adoption Survey in the year of 2020, with the aims to establish a fuller picture of the BIM adoption situation in the Hong Kong construction industry and a baseline for benchmarking BIM adoption. This survey reached out to Architecture, Engineering, Construction and Operation (AECO) organisations from 7 key stakeholder groups (including government departments; statutory bodies; real estate developers and asset owners; consultants specialised in design, engineering and surveying; BIM consultants; main contractors; and subcontractors). Responses from over 480 organisations were received. We welcome feedbacks on the report to bimsurvey@cic.hk.

It provides a standardised Level of Information Need (LOIN) framework and a common language for the use of BIM in the construction industry in Hong Kong, this Standards serves as an extension covering and providing more specific details mainly on architecture and structural engineering. There are also limited samples of LOD element specifications for site elements and civil works such as bridges and marine works (seawall, breakwater, pier/jetty, etc). This Standards must be read in conjunction with CIC BIM Standards - General (Version 2 - December 2020), which contains major enhancements to align with ISO 19650’s Information Management principles, workflows and requirements, also providing Hong Kong Local Annex of ISO 19650-2:2018

CIC BIM Standards – General (August 2019), is an update of our first publication with the title renamed and minor amendments to the Standards aiming to align the first edition of the CIC BIM Standards for Underground Utilities (August 2019) and CIC BIM Standards for Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing (August 2019). CIC BIM Standards – General (Version 2 – December 2020) is our new edition. The objective is given in the ensuing paragraphs. The full suite of CIC BIM standards have been published covering the following specific BIM usages or disciplines separately: CIC BIM Standards – General (August 2019); and (Version 2 - December 2020); CIC BIM Standards for Architecture and Structural Engineering (Version 2 – December 2020); CIC BIM Standards for Underground Utilities (August 2019); CIC BIM Standards for Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing (August 2019); CIC BIM Standards for Preparation of Statutory Plan Submissions (December 2020); CIC Production of BIM Objects Guide – General Requirements (August 2019); and CIC BIM Dictionary (December 2020). There are other CIC BIM documentations under preparation. The CIC has been developing: CIC BIM Exchange Information Requirements (EIR) Template (BIM Specifications); CIC Special Conditions of Contract for BIM for incorporating into existing construction contracts and consultancy agreements for implementing BIM in construction projects; and CIC BIM Services Agreements for procuring BIM services under different contractual relationships. Please refer to the Foreword (2) in the CIC BIM Standards - General (Version 2 - December 2020) for more details.

CIC BIM EIR with Sample Project EIR


The purpose of this document is to provide users with a standard Exchange Information Requirements (EIR) Template as set out by ISO 19650-1, which is required for service agreements or contracts following CIC BIM Standards and methodology depending on the type, scope and other Appointing Parties’ requirements for their projects. Users are advised to go through the Exchange Information Requirements Template and customise them for their specific project applications. This Exchange Information Requirements Template should be used in conjunction with the CIC BIM Standards – General (Version 2 – December 2020). https://www.bim.cic.hk/en/resources/publications_detail/85?back=/en/resources/publications Users may make reference to Sample Project EIR for Planning & Design Stages and Construction Stage (Appendix 1 & 2). As they customise the BIM EIR Template for their specific project application, adjust or amend the contents to satisfy their purposes and needs.
