Building Information Modelling - Asset Management (BIM-AM)

Disclaimer

The BIM-AM Standards and Guidelines are originally developed by the Electrical and Mechanical Services Department and aimed at providing BIM modelling standard, coding standard and information requirement for E&M systems and assets at handover stage for building operation and conforming to EMSD BIM-AM System. The Department is now making the standards and guidelines available for sharing with industry partners. Although every care has been exercised to develop the standards and guidelines, the Electrical and Mechanical Services Department of the Government of Hong Kong Special Administrative Region shall not accept any liability for loss or damage occurring as a consequence of reliance by users in whatever form of the standards and guidelines.

The Electrical and Mechanical Department is still developing the standards and guidelines. The content may be changed any time without prior notice. For enquiries, please send an email to bimam-support@emsd.gov.hk.

Examples of BIM-AM Deployment

EMSD had been deploying BIM for asset management in various government owned and public bodies owned venue and buildings, including government offices, NGO venues, hospitals, etc.

BIM-AM Projects

 

Promotion, Training and Achievement of BIM-AM

Since 2015, EMSD had been actively promoting the use of BIM for asset management in various occasions. The contibution had also been accredited by various awards.

RFID technology is utilitised together with the BIM-AM System for identification of assets. See how it works!

 
Maintenance Showcase for Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning System

Maintenance Showcase for Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning System - Fault Reporting- Fault Reporting (03:30) [MP4 format (320MB)]

BIM-AM System makes fault reporting and job assignment much easier and faster for all concerned. See how it works in an air-conditioning system showcase.

Maintenance Showcase for Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning System - Offsite Pre-Diagnosis- Offsite Pre-Diagnosis (01:51) [MP4 format (172MB)]

Pre-diagnosis of root cause of fault can now be made offsite anywhere anytime, thanks to rich, real-time 3D information from BIM-AM System. See how it works.

Maintenance Showcase for Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning System - Fault Reporting- Onsite Reporting (02:38) [MP4 format (237MB)]

Onsite repair is also faster and more effective, with easier safety compliance and documentation. See how BIM-AM System supports and streamlines the process in real life.

 
Maintenance Showcase for Fire Service Installation SystemMaintenance Showcase for Fire Service Installation System (01:56)

[MP4 format (58.6MB)]

BIM-AM System enables speedy, effective fault repair in urgent situations like a damaged sprinkler with massive water outflow in an office. See how it works.

 
Maintenance Showcase for Emergency Lighting SystemMaintenance Showcase for Emergency Lighting System (01:33)

[MP4 format (46.0MB)]

BIM-AM System can also take O&M of lighting systems to a new level. This showcase of an emergency lighting fault demonstrates the benefits of the system.

 
Maintenance Showcase for General Lighting SystemMaintenance Showcase for General Lighting System (01:51)

[MP4 format (56.0MB)]

O&M of general lighting is also easier and more effective with BIM-AM. Here is a showcase.

 
Alterations, Additions & Improvements WorksAlterations, Additions & Improvements Works (00:36)

[MP4 format (18.0MB)]

BIM-AM System has applications outside of O&M too, such as during preparations of projects and AA&I work. Look at this case.

 
Ad-hoc Wireless DevicesAd-hoc Wireless Devices (00:42)

[MP4 format (21.2MB)]

BIM-AM System also works with ad-hoc wireless devices like sensors and CCTV cameras to capture enriched real-time data for fault analysis, as in these demonstrations.
