建築資訊模型(Building Information Modeling，簡稱BIM)為營建產業革新之重要方法，於全球各地已蔚為趨勢，工程全生命週期(規劃、設計、施工及營運管理維護)中導入BIM模型，具有減少工程變更設計、有效管控預算及工期等效益。
The Building Information Modeling (BIM) is an important method in construction industrial innovation and has become a trend around the world. The BIM model is introduced into the construction project life cycle (planning, design, construction and operational management maintenance), which has the advantages of reducing engineering design alterations, effective budget control and duration control.
On Mar. 17, 2016, MOTC promulgated the “Principles for the Promotion of Operation of the Building Information Modeling (BIM) to all Affiliate Agencies” and demanded all affiliate agencies to consider the BIM when processing engineering related procurements in order to improve project efficiency and quality, and to strengthen the operational management and maintenance effectiveness.
In order to introduce the BIM into the railway system project, BOHSR commissioned the contractor for the project, “Establishment of Guidance on BIM Operation of Railway Engineering”, to come up with a BIM structure that is suitable for railway engineering constructions including HSR, railways and MRT. The project is expected to be completed by the end of June, 2018. By then, guidelines for the production of BIM contract documents, how to import BIM into organizations and how to use BIM for ancillary asset management will be set and clear to follow.
On the occasion of the promotion of BIM, BOHSR invited Deputy Mayor Ming-Teh Wang of Taoyuan City Government to give a lecture on “Application and Compliance Management of BIM Technology in Construction Engineering” on Feb. 20, 2017. In addition, Pacific Engineers & Constructors, Ltd. was invited to BOHSR on May 19 to share their experience in 3D design. In the near future, BOHSR will also continue to carry out relevant educational promotion activities and invite railway construction-related public and private sectors to participate in, establishing basic knowledge of BIM for the practitioners and cultivating related personnel for BIM technology expertise.
