(Hong Kong, 27 November 2020) The Kai Tak Sports Park project was awarded the “Autodesk Hong Kong BIM Awards 2020” and entered the final of the “Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) Excellence Awards 2020” for navigating the industry of using Building Information Modelling (BIM) and unlocking its full capability during the construction period.
The BIM team is the key that leads to a successful BIM Project
“I am so honored to have an excellent BIM team,” said Kenneth Ma, the Executive Director of Hip Hing Engineering Company Limited at the ceremony. He stated that the BIM team with over 500 members, working amongst 63 companies from 8 different locations, including Hong Kong, Australia, UK, Japan and Mainland China, has already finished 25,000 drawings in the past 19 months.
The strong commitment the BIM team has shown to advance and face the potential hiccup is an important factor that leads to a successful BIM project, he added. Throughout the Building Lifecycle, the team has fully utilized BIM technology to develop workflow and assessment metrics, so as to keep track of the design, uncovering hiccups in an earlier stage before they became more severe problems later during the construction.
Finalist of the “Architecture, Engineering and Construction Excellence Awards 2020”
The Kai Tak Sports Park project is also honored to be a finalist in another award presented by Autodesk, the “Architecture, Engineering and Construction Excellence Awards 2020”. From a field of more than 260 entries spanning 35 countries, Kai Tak Sports Park stood out under the Building Design (Large Project) Categories.
Commitment to Hong Kong People
Kai Tak Sports Park is one of the largest infrastructure in Hong Kong. The construction is at a fast pace and involves a lot of people. From groundbreaking to opening, the time is so limited, which makes efficiency much more important.
“Our team is dedicated to create a better community with the Kai Tak Sports Park for the people of Hong Kong,” emphasized by Victor Tai, Project Director (Sports Park) of the Home Affairs Bureau in the acceptance speech.
