CIC Releases Report Identifying Strategies to Improve Performance of the Construction Industry

Improvement in productivity and safety is the top priority of the construction industry in Hong Kong as the construction volume will reach HK$300 billion per year and the demand for housing will reach 430,000 in the next decade. To uplift the industry’s competitive strength in the coming decade, the Construction Industry Council (CIC) launched a recommendation report titled Improving Time, Cost and Quality Performance of the Hong Kong Construction Industry on 17 November 2022.

The report aims to address key challenges and develop a series of strategies that may unlock barriers to accelerate productivity growth in the industry. Based on industry feedback and successful cases overseas, 13 strategies were identified in four focus areas, namely: high productivity construction; streamline approval process; drive adoption of innovative technologies; and enhance project management and procurement.

The identified strategies include supporting the adoption of Modular Integration Construction (MiC) and Multi-trade Integrated Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing (MiMEP); establishing a construction innovation platform; developing an integrated digital submission and approval process; and creating a centrally-managed data platform to enhance project control and planning.

Ir Albert Cheng, Executive Director of CIC highlighted, “CIC has developed an implementation plan and will work closely with the Government and industry to enhance speed, efficiency, quantity and quality.”
