Industrialisation of construction means converting the construction site into sharing factories through the adoption of Pre-fabrication, Design for Manufacture and Assembly concept and innovative ideas in areas of logistics and supply chain management. Such an innovative industrialisation concept will bring forth enormous changes to the Hong Kong’s engineering and construction industry.
A design approach aims to ease of manufacture and efficiency of assembly of a product. With the increasing use of off-site prefabrication, the construction sectors have begun to adopt DfMA. By manufacturing construction components with the most-cost-effective materials and processes at off-site facilities and assembling them at reduced cost and minimized operations on-site, a construction project can be delivered with higher quality, lower cost and lesser time.
