In January 2019, the Construction Industry Council organised a “Client Contractor Supplier Forum on MiC”. Speakers were invited from the Hong Kong Housing Society, ARUP and the Estate Office of The University of Hong Kong to share their considerations in developing MiC projects in Hong Kong and road map. The forum also had a session to allow exchange & discussion amongst clients, contractors and suppliers, with a view to facilitating the planning, design, procurement and statutory submission process for projects which adopt MiC.

2021 Policy Address
The Chief Executive issues the 2021 Policy Address on October 7, 2021. It mentions the government will continue to implement “Construction 2.0” so as to uplift the productivity and skill level of the sector. Wider use of I&T and Modular Integrated Construction (MiC) will also be promoted to shorten construction time, reduce manpower and enhance safety in construction sites. Moreover, in order to increase and speed up the housing supply, the HKHA and the Hong Kong Housing Society (HKHS) will adopt the MiC and other innovative construction technology more widely. The HKHA will also adopt a new procurement model to suitable projects to allow contractors to undertake design and construction in a bundle. It is hoped that these measures can further optimise and speed up the construction process.
