Ir Dr Llewellyn Tang led his team at Llewellyn and Partners Company Limited (LPC) – the first HKU BIM Innovation start-up – to win a Silver Medal at the 2021 Special Edition of International Exhibition of Inventions of Geneva, with their project ‘BIM Warehouse’.
LPC’s mission is to reshape the Architecture, Engineering, Construction and Owner-operated (AECO) ecosystem with revolutionary solutions. The winning invention, ‘BIM Warehouse’, formulates a new AEC business model. It is a B2B2C e-warehouse and e-commerce platform to house AECO assets within an ISO-compliant asset information management platform (AutoCDE) that integrates BIM, GIS, IoT, A.I. and Blockchain. Its A.I. functionality (AutoBIM) can generate semantic 3D BIM models. Powered by blockchain (AEC2hain), it is a solution to AECO and real estate tokenisation. ‘BIM Warehouse’ optimises the processes and unifies the supply chain of the industry for higher cost efficiency and security. It empowers the industry for a new construction normal in digitalisation, standardisation, integration and industrialisation.
IEIG is one of the world’s most significant annual events devoted to inventions. This year, around 600 inventions from 20 countries were evaluated on virtual platforms by an international jury of specialists during 10-14 March 2021. Its award ceremony was held on 17 May 2021.
