Hong Kong – Graphisoft has announced that LWK + Partners has successfully integrated BIM into their workflow and project life cycles, improving design efficiency and project outcomes.

LWK + Partners has delivered world-class design and comprehensive architectural solutions for its clients for over three decades, with more than 1,100 staff across 12 branches worldwide. BIM-integrated technology is used early in the design stage to ensure better project coordination and collaboration with stakeholders, efficient workflows, and 3D visualizations – revolutionising how architectural and design companies automate their day-to-day operations.

William Cheung, Director at LWK + Partners, said, “We are pleased that our pioneering efforts in BIM transformation have paid off. Switching to BIM was a game-changer for our design process. Gone are the days of sifting through piles of drawings and endlessly coordinating changes. With just one model, we can do the work of hundreds of detailed drawings, and the results are so much better.”

With BIM, firms and architects saw the potential to reach new heights – proving further that BIM is not a trend but an essential methodology for the AEC industry. The successful implementation of BIM by LWK + Partners using Archicad has set a new standard in Hong Kong’s architectural market. With offices in multiple locations, Archicad’s collaboration and design tools have enabled the firm to work on projects in real time, even when team members are in different parts of the world.

Utilising BIM technology also contributes to the practice’s vast database, at which point its professionals can analyse real-time data to optimise future designs and accelerate the realisation of smart cities. Many of their recent projects have already adopted these concepts.

Huw Roberts, Graphisoft CEO, commented, “We are committed to delivering innovative BIM software solutions to all our customers, including LWK + Partners. We congratulate them on their successful leadership in Hong Kong’s  BIM transformation. We aim to help our customers stay ahead of the curve and design great buildings for their clients."
