In 2018 Policy Address, the Chief Executive announced that the Government planned to spare space at the section of Tin Fuk Road outside Tin Shui Wai (TSW) MTR Station for building a new public market. During the interim period, there is a need to provide a temporary market (i.e. FEHD Skylight Market) as a transitional arrangement to meet the local demand for additional choices of fresh food provisions. The Architectural Services Department (ArchSD) was engaged for the market development.
To expedite the construction for early enjoyment of the public, Modular Integrated Construction (MiC) method is adopted in this project. There are 18 large and 18 small market stalls using different combination of containers. Each large market stall is composed of individual container while three small market stalls are sub-divided by one 30-feet container.
With the approach of an open and vibrant design fitting in the surrounding environment, an open design in the provision of main weather shelters naturally ventilated is developed. Modules of the shelters are manufactured off-site and transported to site for assembly using Design for Manufacturing Assembly (DfMA) method.
By adopting both MiC and DfMA method in this project, the construction period can be shortened and demand of site labours can be minimised. The Market was commissioned on 27 December 2020.

Quickly build high-quality Light Public Housing with MiC
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.
