Abstract: 近年来,建筑信息建模(BIM)在香港的建筑行业中获得了广泛的认同,无论是政府还是业内人士都意识到这将是个不可逆转的趋势。BIM正逐步改变传统的以2D图表达建筑产品及其将各建筑阶段分散的设计模式,在不久的将来,BIM将可以为建筑业的相关各方提供一个可用于全生命周期管理的三维产品模型。本研究首先对BIM技术在香港目前的运用状况做了一个概述,然后主要介绍了BIM技术应用中相关各方的主要工作及其在应用的成效。其次,介绍香港建筑行业中各个相关方在现有的社会和技术环境下运用BIM技术中将面对的障碍和挑战。最后,文章通过一个案例来说明的BIM在实际运用中的好处,同时阐述了在实现"理想的状况"使用的BIM技术将面临的技术上的局限性和困难。
Building Information Modeling (BIM) has gained rapid acceptance in the building industry in recent years in Hong Kong; both the government and the industry practitioners realize this irreversible trend of changing gradually from traditional 2D representation of building product and fragmented contributions from the stakeholders to 3D product model and streamlined lifecycle management in the near future. This research presents an overview on the implementation of BIM,its current state of practice in Hong Kong. While the primary intention is to introduce the BIM-related works and preliminary benefits; the authors also intend to identify the obstacles and challenges faced by industry practitioners of such implementation in Hong Kong from social and technological contexts. A case study is used to illustrate the benefits of BIM implementation by a large contractor,as well as the technical limitations and difficulties steering toward the "ideal scenario" envisaged by using BIM technologies.
