International Conference on Modular Integrated Construction

Conferences | 24.04.2018

In April 2018, the Construction Industry Council and the Development Bureau jointly organised an International Conference on Modular Integrated Construction Experts were invited from the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Singapore, Mainland China and Hong Kong to share successful examples of MiC worldwide, development opportunities and challenges. This event has allowed the industry to clearly understand the latest trends in this field.

The construction industry has been facing the challenges of high costs, lack of skilled labour and declining productivity. Wider adopting of innovative construction methods and advanced technologies are hence key to tackling these challenges, and MiC provides a timely solution for enhancing the productivity and cost-effectiveness of the construction industry.

The International Conference on Modular Integrated Construction is instrumental to raise the industry’s awareness on the world trend of adopting MiC, as well as to provide a platform for local and overseas academics, professionals and practitioners to share experiences and knowledge on the latest developments and technologies.

2021 Policy Address

2021 Policy Address and MiC

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.
