ON10 – Industrialization of Construction Process through I & T – Quarantine Camp

The outbreak of Coronavirus Disease-2019 (COVID-19) is evolving rapidly around the world. Early identification and isolation are indispensable measures to cope with the local spread. This leads to a surge in demand on quarantine units in the shortest possible time. To outpace the rapid development of the epidemic and address the imminent need for the quarantine camps, industrialization of construction process by combining Modular Integrated Construction (MiC) and Building Information Modelling (BIM) technologies was utilised in the successful delivery of recent quarantine camp projects undertaken by the Architectural Services Department of the HKSAR Government. MiC has introduced a novel engineering approach in design and construction whereby freestanding volumetric modules manufactured in a factory off-site and then transported to site for assembly. This presentation shares the experience in the quarantine camp projects that adopt MiC and BIM technologies, together with various innovative techniques, including real-time logistics cloud-based web-portal, AI-based detection algorithm, and applications of video-telephony and remote drones to facilitate the design, supervision, monitoring and construction works of the quarantine camp projects. The highly encouraging outcomes achieved throughout project delivery, such as less demand for site labour, shortened construction period and better building quality, would also be shared.

I抦 impressed, I need to say. Actually hardly ever do I encounter a blog that抯 both educative and entertaining, and let me let you know, you’ve hit the nail on the head. Your concept is excellent; the issue is one thing that not sufficient individuals are speaking intelligently about. I am very completely happy that I stumbled across this in my seek for one thing relating to this.
