Smart Office Infrastructure and System

Title of I&T Wish Smart Office Infrastructure and System
(REF : W-0040)
Project Summary and Challenges

This project aims to develop a 3D virtual desktop infrastructure and common data environment.

The infrastructure and system would be used in offices, meeting rooms, BIM-AM centre, connecting spaces and learning resources centre.

The 3D virtual desktop infrastructure is built to enable colleagues to access and use the kind of software that requires high processing power, which is simply not available to a normal grade PC. This would be made possible as the virtual desktop infrastructure allows the PC to access the central server and utilise its high processing power. Without the need for a higher-grade PC, colleagues would be able to use software such as BIM software that requires high processing power. Moreover, colleagues need not confine themselves to their office cubicles as they can use it anywhere, e.g. meeting room, as long as there is a WiFi connection.

The common data environment is built for centralised storage of project documents, such as drawings, reports, manuals, asset data and BIM deliverables. Project files can be stored properly with version control, and colleagues need not manage the files individually. The centralised files would also serve as a master version to interface with different systems to ensure a single source of truth.
