Real fun stuff, trust us! Scary too!
If you thought that my post yesterday had little to do with you, please take another look…. If longwinded, I wanted the korero to set up the facts and framework for a simple yet extremely powerful story. A case, which should be of interest to anyone that has a stake in construction — project owners, public or private funders, consultants and contractors of every sort, anywhere in the world.
The railway scheme was gazetted on 26 November under the Railways Ordinance and authorised by the Chief Executive in Council on 27 March Construction of the SCL has commenced in The project is expected to be completed in The intention was that there would be 3 months to identify troubles i.
For 13 out of the 14 contracts the 3 month cut off has passed, on average by about 8 months. The following comments are regarding two articles, both published in the Construction Post. It re-quoted extracts published by Local Chinese newspapers Ming Pao and Apple Daily, that predicted a project over-run of days, based on an estimate by the main contractor, Leighton-Gammon Joint Venture.
Apart from a few anonymous comments by various construction professionals the article added little extra value to the basic story. The Hong Kong construction market is tight-knit, and the recently appointed Editor REF 02 decided to play it safe and not dive too deeply into a potentially contentious issue. With a little homework, he would have realised that a lot of useful material was freely and publicly available to him, to enrich his story.
The event was widely publicised. Apart from acknowledging his fellow presenter and long term client, Mr Collins gives credit to many others for assisting him pioneering a new approach to the delivery of this highly complex project. Had Mr Chung listened carefully to Mr Collins, he could have isolated numerous slides of this BIM presentation and then interviewed MTR and the contractors involved, on how and if the approach had really worked at the time the possible troubles were made public 8 months following this very upbeat presentation and how, if at all, it helped minimising the risks of project derailment for both MTR and the HK Government.
The following questions would have definitely added useful scrutiny to the topic had someone had the courage to ask:. Would the cost and time overruns have ended up EVEN higher without the use of BIM, was the cost to even trying doing BIM really justified and value for money with such low level of skill and understanding on offer amongst those involved? Mr Chung wrote the article on the troubled Express Rail Link and how late the project was likely to be.
Instead, he provided a mouthpiece for a company PR release. Knowing that Gammon was one of the contractors on the previously mentioned SCL REF 10 — the fully mandated BIM project line, where a 3 month cut-off for modelling and issue-raising was stipulated clearly and contractually by MTR — would have made it obviously important to enquire about this exercise from the Director of Innovation, Derek So, who appeared to have interviewed for the article.
Especially since Mr So was making some pretty bold claims, like:. Or was this saving already priced in at the time of tendering?
Yet, this would have been a great forum to also analyse if MTR truly had set out to de-risk their projects with a mandated BIM-approach. Ask has it the skills, willingness and resources to police it properly or will it leave the various contractors to lead MTR by the nose, pretending to be doing BIM while carrying on with their old ways of working and making up for lack of care or productivity through inflated claims? Well, not very difficult. Yet, very few understand the topic to the extent that makes them eligible to vote at all.
And not because they are less technically endowed then their design colleagues anyone can buy cheap modelling capability but because somehow their own PI insurers have taken their eyes of the ball and failed to advise their clients to thread very carefully into that little muddy pool of BIM. Probably I should not be surprised then, when I daily meet people that say we should process thousands of drawings within days and take responsibility over their accuracy with no additional thought of how that risk is managed.
When I question the wisdom of their strategies …they bat no eyelid while confirming how easy this is going to be and they've done it all before…. How difficult can it be to turn drawings into a digital model? Thanks again to all the wonderful contributors who make this magazine possible. And thank you for reading.
