Gammon Construction wins the largest MiC student hostel project in Hong Kong

Gammon Construction Limited has been awarded a contract to build a student hostel at Whitehead, Ma On Shan for a university in Hong Kong. It will be the largest modular integrated construction (MiC) student hostel project in Hong Kong to date.

The contract includes construction of six hostel halls ranging from 13 to 18 storeys, providing over 2,100 hostel places for students, a basketball court, a gymnasium, multi-function rooms and a canteen. It also covers foundation works.

MiC methods will be widely used on the project, with a total of 1,344 units manufactured off-site. To facilitate the construction process, Gammon’s digital supply chain solution STAMP will be used to monitor the manufacturing, delivery and installation of the MiC units holistically. Adoption of MiC will not only shorten the construction period but also reduce noise and waste, mitigating nuisance to neighbours and improving environmental performance.

Kevin O’Brien, Chief Executive of Gammon, said, “We are delighted to be working on this largest MiC project in Hong Kong. As always, our teams will seek every opportunity to implement both our own and industry innovation and technologies that ultimately result in improved quality, efficiency and productivity.”

Works have begun in early 2022.
