MiC Workshop on Technical Aspects of Design

Webinar | 12.07.2021

Authorised person (AP) and Registered Structural Engineer (RSE) play an important role on the structural design of Modular Integrated Construction (MiC) projects. In order to work out a more efficient design in terms of time, cost and quality, what AP and RSE should be considered at the design stage, and what sort of information are required to be provided from the module suppliers? 

In this workshop, we will invite representatives from the Buildings Department to explain the In-principle Acceptance (IPA) framework and the workflow of Project Statutory Plan submissions in building and structural aspect. We will also invite representatives of Consultants, including Leigh & Orange and WSP, to share their project experience on IPA submission, technical design and lessons learnt from the completed MiC projects. 

Please join the online workshop to have a better understanding on the technical design aspect of MiC projects.

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.
