Details :

The idea of setting up “standard approach of modelling” has been promulgated to the BIM practitioners in Hong Kong since 2012.  One of the objectives is to have better quality of models for sharing of model information among project team members.  Some designers and modellers are still in the belief that a model that can allow quantity take-off (QTO) should be a model purposely built for quantity surveyors (QS), and QS are stereotyped as passing their workload upstream in projects adopting BIM.  This concept is outdated if not absurd.


The speaker will share his experience on the collaboration among project team members and his views on how information in models can be shared to QS to serve the intended purpose.
