To cope with the COVID -19, the Hong Kong Government has built the Infection Control Centre (HKICC) with 136 Negative Pressure Wards and 816 beds at AsiaWorld - Expo, which was completed in January 2021. This is the first Infection Control Centre built with MiC method in Hong Kong.  The project only took about 4 months which is much faster than a hospital built with traditional building method.  


The project includes six ward buildings, a medical building, a central electromechanical equipment building and other supporting facilities. The project is designed and constructed in strict accordance with the Hong Kong permanent building standards. Except that the operating room is not set up at the request of the Hospital Authority, the other configuration is the same as that of a normal hospital.
