summary Building Information Modelling (BIM) is an emerging technology in the architecture/engineering/construction industry. This paper presents a case study of the implementation of BIM at the precontract stage of a small scale in-door swimming pool project in Hong Kong. It aims at reviewing the workflow between consultants and the impacts on design visualisation, drawing documentation and bills of quantities. A practicable approach to transform designers’ traditional 2D drawings to BIM with the support from a BIM manager is unveiled. In addition to the results, this paper also highlights some issues such as hardware requirements, the shortfalls of the BIM tool and the supply and demand of skilled BIM personnel. There are other unanswered questions to be addressed in the near future.
