The Atlas team has just secured the third position in the prestigious INNOVATOR OF THE YEAR category at the recent Autodesk ASEAN Innovation Awards 2023 (AAIA). The accolade was awarded in recognition of the team’s great work on the Hong Kong International Airport Terminal 1 project, which exemplified the transformative power of digital technology in the AEC industry.



The team was entrusted by the Airport Authority Hong Kong (AAHK) to embark on the first phase of the airport's digital twin journey. Their objective was to develop an as-built asset-rich BIM model of Terminal 1, which would serve as a comprehensive asset and facilities management tool, as well as a visualization aid for future expansion and development endeavors.


To accomplish this feat, Atlas harnessed the capabilities of several Autodesk solutions, including ReCap, Revit, BIM360, Navisworks, and Dynamo. During the programme, the team meticulously validated an immense volume of data, consisting of over 10,000 folders, 500,000 files, and a staggering 391GB of information, successfully generated and aligned more than 3,000,000 BIM geometries.

A key highlight of the project was the seamless collaboration of over 50 professionals across various disciplines, showcasing excellent teamwork and project management skills. This synchronized effort ensured the integration of multiple facets of the project, ultimately contributing to its success.



David Llorente - Digital Director and the Digital team represented Atlas at the AAIA event. David delivered a presentation on the award-winning project and participated in a round table discussion to share the ideas of cutting-edge advancements in design, technology, and application within the industry.

The advantages in digital transformation, understanding the technology and its potential to revolutionize the way we envision and create the built environment, were also discussed on the sidelines of the conference.



This recognition garnered by the Atlas team at the Autodesk ASEAN Innovation Awards 2023 is a testament to our unwavering commitment to embracing digital transformation and leveraging innovative technologies. This remarkable achievement serves as an inspiration to the team, highlighting the developments of BIM and digitalization in driving productivity and enhancing project workflows.
