Description: Innovation is of great importance to the sustainable development of the Hong Kong construction industry, Hence, the Construction Industry Council (CIC) has set up the Research and Technology Development Fund to provide financial support for research projects which can improve the performance and competitiveness of the industry.

“BIM-based Rebar Design Optimisation and Prefabrication Automation” is one of the research projects funded by CIC and conducted by the Department of Civil and Environment Engineering of HKUST.

The objectives of the research project are to:

  • Develop an innovative optimisation approach for automated clash-free steel reinforcement design and to generate the three dimensional rebar BIM model, and

  • Develop an automated BIM-based framework to generate the rebar detailing drawings and factory machine codes for rebar prefabrication.

We are delighted and honored to have Prof. Jack CHENG and Dr. Vincent J.L. GAN as our guest speakers. They will share the methodology, progress and the expected deliverables of the project in this webinar.

CDE Webinar Series: Integrated Digital Management Hub – Building CDE with Digital Twin for Project Management

Date: 2/6/2020

Time: 16:00 - 17:00

Speakers: 

Ir Terence LUI, CEO of Varadise Limited & Telescope Consulting Limited

Language: Cantonese

Description: 

Digital twin is one of the most important technologies for construction in next 3 years. It was listed as one of the top 10 strategic technology trends by Gartner for 3 consecutive years. By building a digital replica of construction site, project team can see and understand real-time site situation in 3D, and coordinate with different parties effectively.

Varadise Twin is one of the solution that can serves as CDE for construction and beyond to enable digital project management, improving productivity and quality through construction digitalization, and maximizing the benefit of BIM.

With a live BIM platform as CDE, project team can manage:

  • RISC Form submission and approval status

  • Site inspection and checklist

  • Safety observation and follow up actions

  • Site progress monitoring with S-Curve, and 4D construction history

  • Labor attendance record

  • Plant and equipment utilization with IoT

  • MiC delivery and installation tracking

  • Digital Works Supervision System DWSS

And many other digital applications to support digital project management.

CITAC X HKSTP Online Briefing of SciTech Challenge 2020 –Sensory Technology for Construction

Date: 12/6/2020

Time: 16:00 - 17:00

Speakers: 

Dr. Crystal Fok, HKSTP; Mr. Eric Cheng, HKSTP & Mr. Hong Wan, CIC

Language: Cantonese

Description: 

Co-organised by Construction Industry Council (CIC) and Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks Corporation (HKSTP) SciTech Challenge is an open competition for innovators to pitch their products and solutions to industry end users. Teams will be able to accelerate their idea-to-development progress through workshops, site visits and mentorship programme.   

The theme for SciTech 2020 is Sensory Technology for Construction. Recent years, the industry is undergoing digital transformation for improvement on operation efficiency. Sensory technology is the first step for digitalising the physical environment, which forms the foundation for other technology development e.g. robotics, smart city, digital twin etc. This competition will be an effective bridge to close the gap between the burning needs of the industry and interdisciplinary R&D talents.

This briefing session will explain the enrolment process and competition arrangement, including:

  • Introduction of SciTech Challenge 2020

  • CIC sharing of industrial insight

  • HKSTP sharing on Hong Kong's current technology level landscape

  • Event timeline and judging criteria

  • Useful tips for SciTech participants

Let’s join this challenge and make a difference to the construction industry!
