Webinar on MiC: Deconstruction and Relocation of First Modular Social Housing Project (Nam Cheong 220)

Webinar | 19.12.2023

By adopting MiC, the first MiC transitional project, Nam Cheong 220 has showcased its remarkable advantages, particularly in terms of sustainability. The MiC modules utilised in Nam Cheong 220 can achieve an overall reuse rate of over 95%. The flexibility of the MiC method greatly facilitated the process of dismantling and reinstalling for another MiC transitional housing project, "Lok Sin Village," in Tai Po. These modules embark on a new lifecycle, achieving the goal of sustainable development. 

The CIC has engaged the Jockey Club Design Institute for Social Innovation of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (DISI, PolyU) to conduct a study to investigate and document the technical details of the MiC disassembly, relocation and reuse of Nam Cheong 220. In this webinar, representatives from the DISI, PolyU, project client, Housing Bureau, as well as project consultant, Wilson & Associates Limited, have shared with us their valuable findings and experiences gained from the study, and provided recommendations on good design and construction practices for future MiC transitional housing buildings with the aim at further enhancing the reusability of MiC components and improving the efficiency of MiC building relocation and reuse.

Quickly build high-quality Light Public Housing with MiC

The Policy Address 2022 announced the construction of Light Public Housing (LPH)

The LPH Scheme will be led by the Architectural Services Department with the adoption of MiC. The Housing Bureau has selected eight sites in Tuen Mun, Yuen Long, Sheung Shui, Kai Tak, Ngau Tau Kok and Chai Wai, providing around 30,000 LPH units. The construction period takes only one to two years. Each units equipped with self-contained toilet and basic facilities such as water heater and air-con. The first batch of around 2,100 units will be completed in 2024-25 and the remaining units will be completed by phases in 2025-26 and 2026-27, so as to shorten the waiting time of public housing.
