Quarantine Camp in Penny’s Bay - Phase 4

Fantasy Road, Penny's Bay

Following the completion of Phase 1A of the Penny's Bay Quarantine Camp, the Civil Engineering and Development Department undertook the design and construction for Phase 4 of the quarantine camp in view of the third wave of COVID-19. Capitalising the previous experience in Phase 1A works, the project team stepped up in the productivity and completed the design, manufacturing and installation of 306 units within 41 days.

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.
