Offsite Construction

Modular Integrated Construction (MiC)

Chun Wo has always remained at the forefront of the latest trends in construction. By adopting innovative MiC* technology, a state-of-the-art construction method, we can intensively speed up the operations of our projects, increases construction productivity, safety, and sustainability.

 

 

DfMA

 

DfMA is an indispensable part of MiC. It is a design approach which focuses on greater ease of manufacturing and efficiency in assembly. In recent years, the construction industry of Hong Kong has begun to adopt DfMA for off-site pre-fabrication of MiC modular flats and components, such as kitchen and toilet modules. By simplifying the design, it is possible to manufacture and assemble various modules and components more efficiently.

Iconic Construction Projects

Revamp of public toilets at Terminal Building, Hong Kong International Airport

By employing a DfMA approach, Chun Wo finished the revamp of public toilets at Terminal Building at the Hong Kong International Airport. The improvement works include renovation of public toilets at different locations within the terminal buildings (Terminal 1 and Limousine Building). Pre-scribed components in these toilets are prefabricated off-site using the DfMA approach, which hugely minimized the interference of construction on the operation of the Airport and to the public.

Greenhill Villa

The Greenhill Villa is the first precast concrete building in Hong Kong comprising three tower blocks of 36, 34 and 32-storeys, a podium and two lower ground floors. With early implementation of BIM technology the team identified and avoided clashes to reduce wastage of materials and mitigate the risk of external wall tiles spalling. Prefabricated components included structural and non-structural external walls, stairs, refuse chutes, partition walls, parapet walls, semi-prefabricated floor slabs and balconies.

Breast Cancer Foundation Kowloon Centre

The outer wall of the centre with their logo is a prefabricated wall. The internal structure of the building was built with hollow slabs, a refabricated component which eliminated the need of beams to support the internal structure.

Won the Commendation Merit Award in the non-residential category of the HKIE Structural Excellence Award 2019. This award aims to recognize the outstanding performance in aesthetics, design concept and methods, unusual features, innovation & creativity, buildability and sustainability.

Concrete MiC

 

 

DJI_0494

Chun Wo and the P&T Group (P&T) have worked together to develop a 5-face "Concrete MiC System" and an advanced "wall connection technology" that is applicable to our Concrete MiC System. The entire Concrete MiC solution and the wall connection technology have received "In-principle Acceptance" from the Buildings Department, meaning that they can be applied in building development projects in Hong Kong.

The "wall connection technology" of Concrete MiC has also obtained the pertinent patent, making Chun Wo the first Hong Kong construction company to use this method in the design and construction of buildings up to 40 stories high, hence substantially helping enhance construction efficiency.

Possessing extensive experience and a team of experienced BIM professionals, Chun Wo is capable of providing one-stop solutions from design to construction in the field, successfully applying the Concrete MiC Systems to different projects.

Iconic Construction Projects

Yip Shing Street Modular Social Housing Project

With a shortage of public housing, transitional housings provide temporary relief. Yip Shing Street Modular Social Housing Project, one of Chun Wo’s Steel MiC Projects, launched by The Hong Kong Council of Social Service, provides 116 affordable short-term housing units to the underprivileged. It started the on-site installation at the end of July, and the installation of 100 steel MiC modules was completed within 14 days.
