As part of our work with BSI, we have been appointed as a strategic training partner for BSI Asia Pacific and have been delivering Construction Industry Council (CIC) accredited BIM training in Hong Kong on behalf of BSI Asia Pacific.
We supported the CIC in the development of two new training courses in BIM management and BIM coordination.
The CIC’s vision is to drive unity and excellence for the construction industry in Hong Kong, and to forge consensus on long-term strategic issues, convey the industry’s needs and aspirations to the Chinese Government, as well as providing a communication channel for Government to solicit advice on all construction-related matters.
The CIC now has industry standards that are aligned to ISO 19650. Our training team has worked closely with the CIC to update the content of its training materials to reflect the requirements set out in this new global standard.
These BIM training courses provide the most relevant and up-to-date information in the market, where delegates learn how to effectively manage information across all stages of their construction projects.
The Professional Certificate for BIM Manager course offers delegates a sound understanding of BIM concepts from both a Local and Global context. It covers BIM standards and guidelines, software and technologies, data management and contract issues.
The Professional Certificate for BIM Coordinator course starts with the basic concepts of BIM, its uses and protocols, as well as data, quality controls and common data environments (CDE).
In recent years there has been a phenomenal growth in the demand for the use of BIM in construction in Hong Kong, and the need for training is continually increasing.
BIM is especially relevant to the Hong Kong market given its skyline dominates the region with its seemingly endless rows of skyscrapers stacked on both sides of Victoria Harbour. These buildings generate billions for the Hong Kong economy – from construction through to operation – and the use of BIM in the design and build phase can save developers both time and budget, meaning the assets can begin to generate their return on investment at an advanced rate.
The addition of these two new BIM courses has proven essential to the Hong Kong market, in upskilling industry professionals and bridging skills gaps in the digital construction space.
