This webinar is organised by the Hong Kong Green Building Council.

The 2018 Policy Address and Construction 2.0 promote the wide use of modular integrated construction (MiC) for enhanced quality, affordability, productivity, safety and competitiveness of building and construction. Its benefits can be vividly demonstrated in transit houses, and currently in temporary hospitalisation units established in different parts of the world to cope with the surging healthcare demands during the recent COVID-19 pandemic. 

The webinar will discuss the current technology, key considerations throughout the design process and implementation of MiC, as well as the challenges in multidisciplinary design, prefabrication, transportation, installation and inspection for compliance.  To demonstrate capability of modular construction method as well as its feasibility for large scale applications in Hong Kong, project examples such as the MiC Display Centre and the use of MiC methods for quarantine wards and ICU wards will be further elaborated as possible solutions to address some current engineering problems faced by the local industry.
