The authority faces the constant challenge of an ageing population combined with an ageing building stock. Therefore in 2016 it announced a major redevelopment programme. At the start of the initiative, the authority actively sought out new and innovative processes to enable them to deliver the programme, one of which was BIM.

The authority commissioned BIM Academy to undertake feasibility study on the application of BIM and to research the specific applicability and value of BIM, identify opportunities and timescales to apply BIM to deliver improved services and care.

This project drew upon BIM Academy’s experience and research in the adoption of BIM in industry, with report findings containing a thorough analysis of the business value of BIM to the authority’s activities, a clear understanding of the readiness of the market and a set of prioritised recommendations to allow the authority to proceed.

BIM Academy established that BIM can deliver great value to the Hong Kong Hospital Authority and there is capability in the local and international market to support the authority’s capital and maintenance programmes.

As a result the Hong Kong Hospital Authority has mandated BIM on its entire 20bnHKD programme.
