CIC Webinar on DfMA – Moving Towards a New Era in MEP Construction

Webinar | 15.10.2020

The Construction Industry Council (CIC) strives to promote greater uptake of DfMA and offsite construction techniques in the Hong Kong construction industry. While concrete prefabricated components and modules have been adopted in the local construction industry, there is considerable potential for Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing (MEP) designers and builders to adopt the DfMA approach to help deliver high quality building services works more efficiently than using the traditional design for insitu construction approach.

In this webinar, we are privileged to have DfMA experts from Hong Kong and overseas to share their insights and experience in DfMA adoption in MEP works. Strategies and measures for embracing this design approach will be presented and discussed.

New Isolation Facilities in Hong Kong

Alleviate demand pressure for isolation by MiC and DfMA

In view of the 5th wave of the COVID-19, new isolation facilities and Pop-up Community Vaccination Centres were built by MiC and DfMA with full speed. 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.
