MiC: Maximise Infinite Creativity - Mini-building Model Competition

Other Events | 11.06.2021 - 10.07.2021

If you are given a chance to create a landmark building in Hong Kong, what would you do? Most buildings in Hong Kong are rectangular, especially those built with Modular Integrated Construction (MiC) method. The Construction Industry Council recently launched the “MiC: Maximise Infinite Creativity” Mini-Building Model Competition to ignite creativity among secondary school students,who will discover the latest construction technologies and concepts, and bring fresh new ideas to our urban landscape and the construction industry.

Participants in the Competition are in two categories, namely “Senior (Form 4 to Form 6)” and “Junior (Form 1 to Form 3)”. Students were encouraged to form groups to create building models with MiC method concepts. Professional training on MiC and related technologies (e.g. Building Information Modelling; BIM) was provided to the participants. Winning teams are awarded cash coupons as much as HKD4,000 and get the rare chance to participate in professional construction conferences. Winning models will also be exhibited in CIC-Zero Carbon Park in November during CIC’s signature event “Construction Month”.

 

In the Mini-Building Model Competition, students can build rectangular modules and create their MiC building models in an artistic way, or design modules of unique shapes to establish iconic yet practical models. The models should be created in the scale of 1:50 with the materials of your choice. Every model should have at least 20 modules and 5 storeys. Submitted models are evaluated based on creativity, use of environmental-friendly materials, practicality, sustainability concept, aesthetic etc. Enrolment has been closed on 10th July 2021.
