HKCS Construction Industry Group Webinar – Data Standardization and Utilization for Construction Industry
Construction is a major trade in Hong Kong, representing 4.2% of our GDP in 2020. At the same time, it is an industry perceived to be old and manual. In reality, smart technologies have been maturing rapidly in recent years. How are these helping us in improving safety, productivity in construction sites, and thereby competitiveness of our city? Data generated from construction is also shared amongst different stakeholders in the value chain. Could some of this data eventually become part of our smart city as well?
With reference to the Smart City Blueprint for Hong Kong 2.0 launched in December 2020, this is the perfect timing to investigate how the society can better perceive the benefits from smart city and innovation and technology (I&T) in their daily lives. Looking further, with the Common Spatial Data Infrastructure (CSDI), a one-stop 3D spatial data supermarket, planned for launch in 2022, it opens up opportunities for innovation and technology practitioners to develop useful and creatively applications to the society. To make it a success, data standardization from government departments, and public and private sectors should comply with two principles: they must be in machine-readable format and linked to geographical locations.
In this Webinar, our honorable guests will share their opinions and look at how we can help to build a smart digital Hong Kong.

In 2020 HKCS reached the BIG FIVE O, fifty years of age!
To celebrate this auspicious milestone, the HKCS 50th Anniversary Celebration Organising Committee decreed to publish a commemorative booklet on the illustrious history of HKCS in terms of its mission, objectives and activities from the founding of the Society in 1970 to the myriad of activities in the present day.
Many informed individuals were involved in the development and production of this commemorative booklet, from our founding fathers of HKCS in 1970, our Presidents, Council and Committee Members, Distinguished Fellows, to the HKCS Members and friends who have provided us with their memories and accounts of their participation and efforts in fulfilling our core mission in ICT professional development, talent cultivation, industry development and regional and mainland collaboration over the past 5 decades.
I hope you would have much joy in reading this 280+ paged memorable publication, as much as we had in producing it. For many, the narratives and historical photos of past events and endeavours would evoke treasured memories and rekindle the camaraderie of old acquaintances and friendships (send them this anniversary publication!)
