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.

New Isolation Facilities in Hong Kong
In view of the 5th wave of the COVID-19, new isolation facilities and Pop-up Community Vaccination Centres were built by MiC and DfMA with full speed. Eight Community Isolation Facilities projects from China State Construction International providing over 50,000 isolation beds. Supported by the Central Government, the Lok Ma Chau Loop Hospital for Emergency was completed in April 2022. Meanwhile, two MiC transitional housing projects were used as community isolation facilities, providing more than 2,500 units.
