The Expansion of Museum Project at Tsim Sha Tsui East and The Redevelopment of Kwai Chung Hospital both Won Autodesk Hong Kong BIM Awards 2023


Two projects Farrells has been collaborating on with the Architectural Services Department of Hong Kong SAR have both won the Autodesk Hong Kong BIM Awards 2023! They are The Expansion of Museum Project at Tsim Sha Tsui East and The Redevelopment of Kwai Chung Hospital (Phase 2). Farrells Director Stefan Krummeck, Felix Li and the representatives of the project teams attended the awards ceremony held on 24 November.



BIM technology enables accurate data exchange among stakeholders, facilitating the visualisation of innovative designs that promote effective collaboration between designers, contractors, project managers and end-users. This results in better-informed decisions that contribute to the successful delivery of complicated programs. Autodesk BIM Awards aims at recognising professionals in the building industry who are driving the industry’s transformation through the use of BIM and shaping the industry towards a more efficient and sustainable era.



Within a very progressive and competitive pool of nominated projects, Farrells’ winning projects have well demonstrated our commitment to innovative design solutions and our capability to closely collaborate with our partners to address design challenges and increase efficiency and flexibility.



The Expansion of Museum Project at Tsim Sha Tsui East includes the design of new annex buildings for the Hong Kong Science Museum and Hong Kong Museum of History, and the renovation of existing facilities. With the demands for complicated phasing and sequencing during construction to suit operational needs, the adoption of BIM benefits the programme and optimises cost control, as well as future operations in the long run. The team has implemented Farrells BIM Standards with enhanced visualisation and analysis via the use of Revit, Navisworks or Enscape. Add-ins such as DiRoots or Dynamo have helped the team to automate traditional manual tasks, allowing for faster and more efficient design iterations.



The Redevelopment of Kwai Chung Hospital (Phase 2) aims to construct the first local hybrid-mode psychiatric hospital providing holistic patient-centred care in a therapeutic village setting.​ The General Building Plan generated by Farrells’ template enables automated statutory compliance checking and smart linking of schedules. The 3D point cloud of complex existing site topography enables a precise understanding of site constraints and conditions. Adoption of CDE facilitates real-time models for MiC/DfMA/MIMEP design coordination plus logistic & installation simulation. Additionally, cutting-edge technologies including 3D printing and VR are adopted for end-user visualisation and virtual mock-up.
