The HKBIM Future Public Housing Design Competition, co-organised by PolyU’s Research Institute for Land and Space (RILS), was kicked off on campus in July 2023. The Competition’s contestants, enrolling either in the Secondary School or the Open category, use the HKBIM software developed by the Smart Construction Laboratory under PolyU’s Department of Building and Real Estates to create viable design proposals for future public housing. Designs should be submitted by September this year.


Building Information Modelling (BIM) is a process of generating three-dimensional, digital representation of building data throughout its life cycle. It can enhance productivity by facilitating project management, construction process control, cross-disciplinary collaboration, communication with external stakeholders, decision support, and risk management.


RILS joins forces with China (Hong Kong) Association of Architects and Engineers, Logistics and Supply Chain MultiTech R&D Centre, Hong Kong STEM Education Alliance, Hong Kong Project Management Exchange Centre, and Hong Kong Academy of Management to premiere the Competition.
