Invotech Smarter HK 2018 Series

How to transform an old city into a Smart City using BIM, GIS, and Augmented Reality?

A Smart City needs to be a connected city, but a “Smarter” city knows how and when to connect.  Hong Kong is far from being connected. Now is time to connect our Smart Citizens with Smart Global Experts, and contribute to grounding our Smart City. 
Through a series of half-day talks each month, Invotech with our supporting partners brings the world of innovation and technology to Hong Kong and exposes Hong Kong to the world.  
Master facilitator of the Series is Prof. Gregg Li.  The March workshop is about Smart Buildings, Smart Living, and Smart Communites.  Join us, to co-learn, co-play, co-explore, collaborate, and co-create.  Let’s make Hong Kong into a more competitive city, and let’s have fun upgrading the quality of living while we become smarter. 

March Workshop: How to transform an old city into a Smart City using BIM, GIS, and Augmented Reality?  Rosana Wong. 22 March 2018. 2:00 pm – 5:30 pm.  H6 CONET.  Central.

  • Today’s exploration is into Building Information Modeling (BIM), Smart Buildings, and the knowledge Smart Citizens will need to prepare living and building a new future in Hong Kong. In this session, Rosana will illustrate how new technologies such as BIM, GIS, and augmented reality can transform any city into a Smart City and any environment into a Smart Environment.
  • Full Lifecycle Management is a key solution for Hong Kong and Belt and Road countries.  This concept extends from design to construction to facility management, to even green building simulations.  Rosana will share with us how this concept is changing the way we build and maintain our communities in Hong Kong.
