Hong Kong Alliance of Built Asset & Environment Information Management Associations (HKABAEIMA) is founded by three associations [i.e., Hong Kong Geographic Information System Association (HKGISA), Hong Kong Institute of Civil and Building Information Management (HKICBIM) and The Hong Kong Institute of Building Information Modelling (HKIBIM)] which are specialised in Information Management for Built Asset and Environment industries.
The Alliance forms a platform to gather all experts and professionals in Information Management for sharing their experience and collaborating to develop cross-discipline information flow for a better integration of the use of information within our built asset industry and realize the full societal, environmental and economic benefits of open sharable infrastructure and building asset information into commercial and institutional processes worldwide. Our vision is to proactively facilitate the active use and dissemination of open data standards enabling infrastructure and building asset data and lifecycle processes to improving the value achieved from investments in built assets and enhance opportunities for growth in the following levels:
(1) Industry level: To connect information management communities across built asset and environment industries.
(2) Society level: To serve society by building capacity, sharing experience and enabling information exchange.
(3) Global level: To drive digital transformation in line with global development.
The openBIM approach promoted by buildingSMART targets to enhance interdisciplinary communication using industry-standard exchange methodologies and streamline the information sharing and collaboration process. HKABAEIMA sees the openBIM potential and opens an opportunity to local and global practitioners to learn, to share and to interchange with each other to empower the development of a sustainable BIM roadmap.
