MiC Series Booklets Launch:
"MiC Success, Glossary, and Guidebook"
Officiating today at the launching ceremony of three publications on Modular Integrated Construction (MiC), Ir Lam Sai-hung, JP, Permanent Secretary for Development (Works) again pointed out Government’s policy to support MiC. He said, “Hong Kong’s construction industry is facing severe challenges due to declining productivity and ageing workforce. Projects adopting MiC show definite benefits over conventional construction methods. Through the concerted effort of the Government, industry and academia, MiC will contribute to modernizing Hong Kong’s construction industry.”
The three MiC booklets entitled “Modular Integrated Construction for High-rises: Measured Success”, “A Glossary of Modular Integrated Construction”, and “Modular Integrated Construction Performance Measurement Guidebook” are produced by the Centre for Innovation in Construction and Infrastructure Development (CICID) and published by the Department of Civil Engineering, of The University of Hong Kong (HKU).
“We are more than delighted to launch the three MiC booklets. These publications not only contribute clarity and new understanding of MiC in Hong Kong, but also provide useful guidance for the industry and enterprises to adopt and measure the new technology,” Professor Christopher Chao, Dean of Faculty of Engineering of HKU said at the ceremony.
Ir Professor Wei Pan, Executive Director of HKU CICID and lead author of the three publications said “The aim of the MiC booklets is to support Government’s policy on MiC and to bring clarity and understanding of the new technology to Hong Kong’s construction industry. They will provide comprehensive benchmarking of social, environmental and economic performance of adopting MiC to high-rise building projects in Hong Kong.”
