The MiC Display Centre is located within the CIC - Zero Carbon Park complex in Kowloon Bay and is the first building constructed using MiC in Hong Kong. The Centre not only functions as a visitor centre and exhibits flats built using MiC, it also demonstrates compliance of each of the modules' specific functions with the relevant Hong Kong building requirements. More importantly, the Centre serves as a resources centre which provides information and latest news of MiC for industry stakeholders, with an aim to facilitate the information exchange and foster the development of MiC in Hong Kong.
The Centre consists of 5 types of show flats, including a hotel unit, hostel unit, elderly home unit, a 1-bedroom residential flat and a 3-bedroom residential flat. Each usage is aimed at a different market. The Centre is designed with an overall high level of spatial quality to form a holistic visitor venue. Through careful selection of materials, the design aims to deliver a high-quality, durable, aesthetically pleasing and user-friendly environment.
The MiC Display Centre has set up a number of new exhibits and equipment to provide a comprehensive and “one-stop-shop” MiC Resources Centre to serve the industry and the public. These include models of pilot MiC projects, modular connections, DfMA panel sample, BIM enabled blockchain multi-functional platform and digital kiosks for obtaining useful MiC resources and information.
Model of Hong Kong Penny’s Bay Temporary Quarantine Facilities Phase 1A
The Penny’s Bay Quarantine Facilities Phase 1A consists of 7 blocks of 110 steel MiC modules. The modules are produced by AluHouse. All modules were fully decked out with everything from utilities ducting/wiring to fixtures, fittings and aluminum wall panels before delivering and installing on-site at Penny’s Bay.
The AluHouse MiC system is a sustainable and eco-friendly system which helps minimizing the construction waste onsite.
CIMC Connection System Model
This is a real 1:1 connection model of the MiC Display Centre. The connection system is designed by CIMC Modular Building System, and the model is a module-to-module connection model.
Candle-Loc System (patented design licensed to be used by Paul Y. - iMax in Hong Kong and Macau)
For connection of MiC modules, a patented Candle-Loc System is exclusively licensed to Paul Y. - iMax for use in Hong Kong and Macau. This system has been granted in-principle acceptance (IPA) by the Buildings Department, and only requires fixing along perpendicular axis of the module from the top to fix in both vertical and horizontal directions. No grouting is required for this system that enables future relocation.
This is a real 1:1 Candle-Loc System model.
Model of DfMA Cooling Tower in West Kowloon Government Office
DfMA approach is adopted for the MEP system of Cooling Tower in West Kowloon Government Office. Pipe modules are prefabricated in the factory, then transported to and installed onsite.
Various BIM modularisation tools are used in order to improve the accuracy.
Sha Tin Cavern MiC Module
The Community Liaison Centre was constructed by the use of MiC technique integrated with BIM technology, which shortened the construction time, improved the accuracy of materials estimation and reduced wastage. It is a single-storey centre consisting of 14 MiC modules.
This is a model of one of the MiC modules.
Introduction of BEANiE – BIM enabled blockchain multifunctional platform
BEANiE, a BIM-enabled blockchain multifunctional platform, is developed to properly record, register, filing or uploading the test/inspection data to reliable online platform for a real time tracking and monitoring the status of every single MiC unit at each step of production.
BEANiE enables any authorized personnel at any time to access and track any piece of MiC unit on its completion and quality checking status.
Mock up of DfMA Panel
DfMA approach is adopted in the refurbishment of toilet at Western Upper Platform at Ngau Chi Wan Park. Major DfMA components are consisted of wall panels, all-in-one mirror and basin cabinets and light troughs. The adoption of DfMA can maximise efficiency and minimise construction period and environmental impacts.
This is a mock up of one of the DfMA wall panels.

HKICC and Quarantine Camps
To fight COVID-19, the HKSAR Government has built the North Lantau Hospital Hong Kong Infection Control Centre (HKICC) next to the AsiaWorld-Expo providing 136 negative pressure wards which were designed with reference to the standards of tier-1 isolation wards that could accommodate about 820 beds. The HKICC adopted MiC method and was completed in merely 4 months (Sep 2020 – Jan 2021). It will open on 26 February 2021.
