MiC Display Centre officially established
The Construction Industry Council (CIC) announced the opening of the CIC’s MiC Display Centre on November 6. Speaking at the opening ceremony, Mr Michael Wong, Secretary for Development mentioned that there were several public projects using the building method of Modular Integrated Construction (MiC), such as Disciplined Services Quarters for the Fire Services Department at Pak Shing Kok; student residential units of The University of Hong Kong in Wong Chuk Hang (which has started its tender process and the construction can be started in 2019); and the Senior Citizen Residences Scheme (SEN) by the Hong Kong Housing Society in Shatin might also make use of MiC. The HKSAR Government will promote the adoption of MiC on various fronts.
     The 2-storey MiC Display Centre, the first building adopted MiC in Hong Kong, is located at the Construction Industry Council - Zero Carbon Building. It consists of 10 modular units to showcase six types of show flats, including an exhibition area, a hotel unit, a hostel unit, an Elderly Home unit, a 3-bedroom residential flat and a 1-bedroom residential flat. Each show flat is designed according to the actual living environment of Hong Kong. The design of the MiC Display Centre showcases a high-quality, durable, aesthetically pleasing and user-friendly environment.
     “From all corners of the globe, the construction industry has been facing challenges on manpower shortage, site safety, rising construction costs and quality assurance. Industrialisation, one of the demonstration of Modular Integrated Construction, is an efficient way to solve the challenges and can also help reduce 30% of the production time,” said Mr Chan Ka-kui, Chairman of CIC. 
     Through the adoption of MiC, CIC hopes that the industry can enhance site safety and construction quality. The establishment of the MiC Display Centre is to share an actual showcase with the industry, which facilitates the way in transportation, construction materials, design and construction under the law of the HKSAR. The Legislative Council has approved the 1 billion Construction Innovation Technology Fund (CITF) this year, and MiC is one of the signature funding projects.
     During the event, a representative from the Architectural Services Department introduced the first pilot project of the HKSAR Government adopting the MiC. The Hospital Authority also presented their first 10-year Hospital Development Plan to the audience. Suppliers from Germany, Singapore, the Mainland China and Hong Kong shared their fruitful outcomes by using the innovative construction method.
