BIM Academy was asked to support the development of a project which would investigate the feasibility and business case for collating and linking asset data from various 3D digital and 2D conventional formats derived from ongoing rail infrastructure projects, and migrating this data to a new asset and facilities management systems.

The BIM Academy team took 3D geometric models, metadata and handover documentation from the construction and maintenance team, particularly those working on the Kwun Tong Line extension, then reconfigured the data to generate consistency and compatibility prior to successfully testing the migration of data to the new system.

As part of the study, BIM Academy demonstrated practical savings in time and cost in relation to the response times and efficiency of the operational teams.

This return on investment was then used internally within the corporation to support the business case for the further expansion of its BIM programme.
