Adoption of Building Information Modelling
for Capital Works Projects in Hong Kong


On 20 December 2019, the Development Bureau (DEVB) issued a Technical Circular (Works) No. 9/2019 on the Adoption of BIM for Capital Works Projects in Hong Kong.

Superseding DEVB TC(W) No. 18/2018, this Circular enhances the implementation requirements for BIM adoption in response to WDs’ feedback and extends the scope of mandatory BIM uses to certain applications in investigation, feasibility and planning stage, design for digital fabrication as well as sustainability evaluation (6-D) so as to further foster adoption of BIM technology in public works projects.

This Circular takes effect on 1 January 2020.
