"There are many significant benefits achievable from the adoption of MiC, but there co-exist multifaceted challenges. Success strategies are required for securing the technical feasibility, ensuring the regulatory compliance, enhancing the commercial viability, increasing the supply chain competency and shaping the market preference of MiC adoption in Hong Kong. With the suggested framework of MiC policy scenarios in the short, mid and long term against a range of policy areas of MiC technologies and systems categorised by material, design, supply chain location, procurement method, building type, building status, funding source, functional area, location, and building height, there is a promising future of marching towards a modern construction industry and society."
