Scheduled for completion in 2023, the 36-classroom primary school at Tai Po Area 9 is the first primary school building in Hong Kong adopting MiC for all 36 numbers of typical classrooms, typical lavatories for students, typical electrical rooms and pantry. The valuable experience of MiC design and implementation gained in this project will set a good example and lesson learnt for the forthcoming MiC school developments in the future.
The repetitive design of all 36 standardised classrooms is well-suited for the adoption of MiC. In general, each classroom is sub-divided into four volumetric units prefabricated with reinforced concrete elements and completed with the required finishes, fixtures and building services in an off-site factory under stringent quality control. In addition, MiC is also adopted for the typical lavatories for student, typical electrical rooms and pantry. The total number of MiC modules to be constructed for the school is 181.

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.
