In 2017, the HKSAR Government decreed that building information modelling (BIM) technology must be used in the design and construction of all major government capital works projects with a project estimate of more than HK$30 million that were scheduled to start during or after 2018, and that the use of this technology in private construction projects should also be promoted. This has generated a surge in demand for BIM personnel and training needs.


To facilitate the healthy development of BIM in Hong Kong, the Construction Industry Council (CIC) has introduced the BIM Certification and Accreditation Schemes to ascertain the competency of BIM personnel and the quality of local BIM training courses.


To be eligible for certification as a CIC-Certified BIM Manager (CCBM), one of the requirements is the successful completion of BIM Manager course accredited by CIC.


With the focus of bringing in internationally recognized BIM national standards from the UK into Hong Kong, and with reference to ISO 19650, PAS 1192 suite standards and CIC BIM Standards – General (August 2019); (Version 2 - December 2020) and (Version 2.1 - 2021); we hope, under the CIC Certification Scheme for BIM Personnel or so-called CIC-certified CCBM, we aim:

  1. a) To introduce the international and local best practice on BIM management to the AECOO industry.
  2. b) To ensure that construction professionals have appropriate skill levels and competency in using BIM technology that meets the local needs.
  3. c) To provide these construction professionals with leading-edge knowledge on BIM management and generate value at both project and organisational levels.

d)     To broaden these BIM champions global horizon regarding the development and contextualising BIM and smart city planning into the industry.
