The celebration aims to inspire organisations and practitioners in the industry to continually be creative, innovative, transformative or disruptive in bringing BIM to its full potential.
For this recognition, WSP has showcased how to harness the potential of BIM technology to realise collaborative, efficient and effective building and infrastructure design, which is essential to WSP’s Future Ready approach to shape communities of tomorrow and help cities thrive sustainably. To achieve its vision on BIM development, WSP has set up a dedicated department in the Hong Kong office with over 50% certified BIM professionals to oversee both internal capability development and project delivery.
Apart from experienced applications in modelling, WSP has been pushing the boundaries of BIM for more service offerings including digital design, scan-to-BIM approach, engineering analysis, 4D and 5D simulation and asset management, adding values to a wide range of projects and clients.
Meanwhile, named as one of the ‘BIM Projects 2020’ in this celebration, the Tseung Kwan O Desalination Plant is a fine example of multidisciplinary collaboration under WSP’s BIM Manager role. Through utilising cloud-based collaboration platform to coordinate with all the stakeholders, the project has successfully achieved Level 2 BIM.
Ivy Kong, CEO of WSP Asia, believes the corporation could achieve more with its BIM excellence. “WSP leverages our capabilities to help the Hong Kong construction industry grow better. BIM Level 3 is on its way and we are ready for it by integrating BIM with our digital and smart expertise. As we fully embrace BIM, we will pave the way for a Future Ready, smart and resilient built environment for Hong Kong.”
