Mr. Welie Ng has been practising in the construction industry for more than 13 years. He practised as an architect after graduating from his master studies, and researched and pioneered the use of 3D related technologies duringthe same time. He joined Gammon in 2006 where he found the arena was most challenging and diversed for Building Information Modelling (BIM) application in the industry. Up till 2011, Welie and Gammon had gained experience in implementing BIM for more than 10 major construction projects, including One Island East, iSquare and HK Airport North Satellite Concourse, etc.
Application of BIM by construction company could help to improve design coordination and work planning resulting in reduction of construction time and cost. The technology would enable the project team to rehearse the construction process with a clash detection report to identify potential clashes between different trades (structure, architectural finishes and E&M works) prior to construction and would help to minimize abortive work and waste. Welie would share his experience in application of BIM on his projects
