Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department used MiC method to design and construct star gazing facilities at Sai Wan including a sittig-out area located at the hillside north of Sai Wan Beach. As the star gazing facilities are located in a remote place, it is difficult for working vehicles to directly reach the site for construction. The use of MiC can facilitate transportation and maintenance work.

The design features are as follows:

  • The curved ring seat part is assembled from factory-manufactured prefabricated modules
  • Modules can be separated and replaced when necessary
  • The installation of the ring-shaped prefabricated modules adopts the tenon-and-mortise structure technology      instead of welding, so that the installation work is not affected by the rain
