Autodesk Hong Kong BIM Awards 2016

Eastern District Cultural Square was chosen to be a winner of Autodesk Hong Kong BIM Awards 2016.  According to the advisory panel, with the assistance of BIM, the visualization of this complex design has been far better during the design process than would be possible with 2D drawings.  The team maximizes the value of BIM by utilizing the Revit model to conduct building performance analysis in various disciplines, such as interior shadow and lighting analysis, sound performance analysis, maintenance plan, etc.  Accurate cost estimation is possible through calculations involving Dynamo and Revit data, for the irregular prefabricated aluminium panels.  This practice demonstrates that risk control, along with material and cost saving, are achievable by adopting BIM in the early stage of a project.

Fisherman Cultural Centre located at the Aberdeen Promenade also received the Honorable Mention.  This signature project has successfully completed the statutory submissions by using 2D drawings generated from Revit, including General Building Plan, Structural Plan and submission to Fire Services Department.
