Located in Hong Kong Science Park, InnoCell is a pilot project of using Modular Integrated Construction (MiC) in Hong Kong. It provides a minimum of 500 bedspaces. Room types include Standard Studio, Sleepbox, Co-living and Family Unit (Recreational and co-living and co-working space integrated with the residential units) with supporting ancillary facilities. It is a smart living and co-creation community for tech talents after the completion of project.

The 17-storey building sits on a 32,000-sq ft. site adjacent to the southeast entrance of Hong Kong Science Park.The building is assembled by 418 modules and provides 5 types of room.

HKSTP formally launched the InnoCell on 7 April 2021.

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.
