Technology Adoption

The CITF will be used to support technologies (including machinery, equipment and software) with proven effectiveness in boosting productivity, uplifting built quality, improving site safety or enhancing environmental performance, through leveraging automation, industrialization and digitization rather than sheer innovative management practices.

  • Building Information
    Modelling (BIM)

    BIM digitalises the construction process. It can minimise clashes and abortive work and reduce the risks of project delivery failure through better co-ordination, hence achieving clearer programme and costs at all project stages.

  • Advanced Construction Technologies (ACT)

    With the advance in technology, many manual construction operations can be performed by machines and robots under the supervision of skilled and knowledgeable construction personnel.

  • Modular Integrated Construction (MiC)

    MiC transfers labour-intensive processes and site-bound wet works (such as concreting, screeding, plastering and most building services installations) to off-site manufacturing yards through standardization, thus enhancing productivity, site safety, environmental performance and cost-effectiveness. The use of MiC will shorten construction time, in particular for interior finishes, fixtures and fittings on-site, and allow better quality control.

  • Prefabricated Steel Rebar (STB)

    The use of prefabricated steel rebar can reduce laborious bar-bending work in construction sites, improve productivity and reduce material wastage.
