Seminars | 12.08.2021

The KICEM (Korea Institute of Construction Engineering and Management) and CNERC (Chinese National Engineering Research Center for Steel Construction, Hong Kong Branch) are delighted to announce The First ICCEPM International Seminar on Modular Integrated and Off-site Construction (MiC/OSC), an online meeting scheduled at 9 AM (HK time), August 12, 2021. This Seminar is initiated and supported by the International Consortium of Construction Engineering and Project Management (ICCEPM).

Date:   12 August 2021

Time:   9:00 am to 10:30 am HKT

Venue:  On-line meeting

Free of charge.

Modular Integrated and Off-site Construction (MiC/OSC) has been considered as a game-changing technology for faster construction, safer manufacturing, better quality control, and lower environmental impacts compared with traditional onsite construction. Due to these benefits, both the government and the industry in many countries are driving to promote MIC/OSC. Currently, we are building practical experience through government sub-vented or industry-led projects that range from small-scale housing projects to high-rise commercial buildings in South Korea, Hong Kong, and the United States. However, to further promote the use of MiC/OSC, several remaining challenges in terms of design, manufacturing, procurement, delivery, and construction should be tackled. The workshop aims to share the state-of-the-art research and technologies for MiC/OSC in South Korea, Hong Kong, and the United States. Also, during the workshop, it will be discussed how to build an international research network and collaboration platform for the research in MiC/OSC.

Eight Community Isolation Facilities projects from China State Construction International providing over 50,000 isolation beds. Supported by the Central Government, the Lok Ma Chau Loop Hospital for Emergency was completed in April 2022.
