<< Prof Heng Li, Chair Professor of Construction Informatics, Awarded in Smart Living Partnership Awards 2022 >>


Prof. Heng Li’s steadfast pursuit of digital and smart solutions to construction problems was highly praised with the ETNet Award in Smart Living Partnership Awards 2022.  This honour further expands Prof. Li’s accolade list.  Congratulations to Prof. Li!


Funded by Logistics and Supply Chain MultiTech R&D Centre (LSCM), Prof. Li’s winning project developed a computer vision-enabled digital twin for construction resource and progress management.   The construction industry has played a key role in Hong Kong and been an instrumental driver of economic growth and enabler of social development for many generations. Whilst the construction industry has a long and proud history, it has produced a large amount of construction wastes that are difficult to be monitored.  Digital Twin is a concept of having a real-time digital representation of a physical object, which allows up-to-date information to be fed back to the field so as to provides automatic resource allocation monitoring and waste tracking in construction management. This winning project transforms the construction management practice to be a population-based, intensive, and proactive process; it improves resource productivity, reduces resource waste and progress lagging, as well as improves project performance.


Smart Living Partnership Awards 2022 aims to recognise and support outstanding companies or organisations which are committed to promoting Hong Kong as a Smart City.  Improving society’s competitiveness and increasing public awareness of digitalisation are at the heart of it.


The Award Presentation Ceremony will be held on 27 February 2023.   We wish Prof Li every success in his future endeavors!
