 Course Background 

In 2017, the HKSAR Government decreed that building information modelling (BIM) technology must be used in the design and construction of all major government capital works projects with a project estimate of more than HK$30 million that were scheduled to start during or after 2018, and that the use of this technology in private construction projects should also be promoted.

In addition, to ensure the healthy development of BIM in Hong Kong, the Construction Industry Council (CIC), has introduced the BIM Certification and Accreditation Schemes to ascertain the competency of BIM personnel and the quality of local BIM training courses.

To be eligible for certification as a CIC-Certified BIM Manager (CCBM), one of the requirements is the successful completion of BIM Manager course accredited by CIC. The purpose of this course is for the preparation of CCBM application and it is the route to be a CCBM.

 

CIC Accredited BIM Manager Course 

With the focus of bringing in internationally recognized BIM national standards from the UK into Hong Kong, and with reference to ISO 19650 and PAS 1192 suite standards; we hope, under the CIC Certification Scheme for BIM Personnel,

  • To introduce the lifecycle BIM management experiences and best practices to the AEC industry
  • To provide the industry elites with leading-edge learning resources on BIM management,
  • To improve the core capabilities of BIM management, and ultimately
  • To broaden their global horizon regarding the development and contextualising BIM and digital built into the sector.

The course is organised by BSI and collaborated with Llewellyn & Partners Co.

How will I benefit?

The ISO 19650 standard is an international standard for managing information over the whole life cycle of a built asset using BIM. Through the use of Building Information Modelling and BIM certification, the following key benefits can be gained:

  • Faster and efficient processes
  • Increased productivity and speeds up delivery
  • Reduced uncertainty
  • Controlled whole-life costs and environmental data
  • Avoidance of rework costs
  • Improved safety
  • Opportunity to secure contracts and meet ISO BIM
  • Reduced on-site waste
  • Prevention of errors
