  6. 6. … and employed an approach called BIM…. 6 MTR had taken advice
  7. 7. Digital models were used to define the project … As well as tens of thousands of drawings and specifications… 7
  8. 8. And the results were inconclusive… i.e. the project is still late and likely to be over budget The use of BIM cost MTR a lot of extra money …. 8
  9. 9. the MTR prescribed the same approach With some amendments to it… However, on MTR’s next job, the Shatin – Central Link Line (SCL) 9
  10. 10. But by the contractors! On this project, the BIM approach would be done not by MTR 10
  11. 11. Contracts needing BIM were let and signed by all. 11 Including highly specific and prescriptive BIM requirements…
  12. 12. the contractors had three months to review the design documents, Once all the contracts had been awarded, 12
  13. 13. …and report to MTR on their findings… …turn them into digital models…. 13
  14. 14. would be identified and addressed in timely manner… This was to ensure most design mistakes or omissions…. 14
  15. 15. … the UK Government is embarking on an experiment of similar magnitude… 15 …while Hong Kong is innovating through MTR’s BIM initiatives
  16. 16. 16 The use of Building Information Modelling will be made mandatory on virtually all UK government projects by 2016 Paul Morrell, the UK government’s chief construction adviser promises:
  17. 17. So somebody should ask the MTR : How is this initiative going, two years into the project…. UK and HK go back a long way . . . 17

  21. 21. …who will report, the no-doubt, very promising AND reassuring results from this experiment to his stakeholders… …the GM enforcing this MTR project contract is Mr Philco Wong 21
  22. 22. …currently busy formulating their own BIM strategy for delivering public buildings in a similar way He may even share this success story with the UK Government 22
  23. 23. 23 On this project in Hong Kong, MTR have contractually bound their contractors to identify all causes for extra costs on this $65 billion dollar project, within a period that ends three months after they had been awarded the work. The Positive results of the experiment of a BIM deliverables deadline will provide solid evidence of cost-certainty to MTR.
