How IT Can Help Improve Construction Productivity

  1. 1. HOW INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY COULD HELP TO IMPROVE CONSTRUCTION PRODUCTIVITY Productivity equals to • Cost Effectiveness • Time Saving • Quality & Quantity • Team Management, etc.
  2. 2. EXAMPLES OF ICT ADOPTION IN OTHER SECTORS Manufacturing Infrastructure Retail • Automatic production • Quality Control program • Managing System • Electronic Meter Recording System • Smart Card Payment
  3. 3. EXAMPLES OF ICT ADOPTION IN OTHER SECTORS Education • e-Learning • Distance Learning • e-Healthcare Record • Distance Diagnosis
  4. 4. APPLYING ICT KNOWLEDGE TO CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY • BIM – Building information Modelling • Not just making 3D models but also, • Project management • Management support • Reducing/ managing cost • Scenario simulation and analysis • Procurement and logistics management
  5. 5. BIM – BUILDING INFORMATION MODELLING • Project Management • Manage all data from construction to operation • Management Support • Provide info. for maintenance and planning • Reducing /Managing Cost • Calculating material cost through the system
  6. 6. BIM – BUILDING INFORMATION MODELLING • Scenario simulation and analysis • Simulating sunlight, ventilation, heat absorption, etc. • Procurement &logistics management • Managing materials on schedule
  7. 7. LOTT + BARBER ARCHITECTS’ DEMONSTRATION CAD (2D) and BIM Platform Comparison in a same project Tasks CAD(hours) BIM(hours) Time Saved (hours) Percentage Designing Process 190 90 100 53% Developing Process 436 220 216 50% Document Preparation 1023 815 208 20% Review & Coordination 175 16 159 91% Total: 1,824 1,141 686 38% Total time Saved
  8. 8. BIM IN HONG KONG Housing Authority adopted BIM since 2006, So Uk Estate Demolition Kai Tak Development
  9. 9. BIM – IN THE FUTURE • BIM via cloud computing • Real-time visualization and simulation • Facilitating information sharing and communication • Sustainable development  Building owners will make use of the modeling data to manage the building or to create new value  Energy use optimisation
