To cope with the COVID -19, the Hong Kong Government has built the Infection Control Centre (HKICC) with 136 Negative Pressure Wards and 816 beds at AsiaWorld - Expo, which was completed in January 2021. This is the first Infection Control Centre built with MiC method in Hong Kong. The project only took about 4 months which is much faster than a hospital built with traditional building method. In this webinar, we invited representatives of the project team from Architectural Services Department and China State Construction Engineering (Hong Kong) Limited to share the design concept and how the MiC technology was applied in this project.

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.
