Studies conducted by the Hong Kong Construction Association conveys that the Steel Reinforcement Supply Chain in Hong Kong is “inefficient, outdated and behind regions like Singapore and Australia”. While at the same time, the Hong Kong’s Construction Industry Vision 2020 document (published in June 2012) identified the following issues:


  1. Steel supply chain is inefficient due to on-site testing requirement
  2. The procurement process is inefficient
  3. Safety at construction sites needs to improve
  4. Industry is not productive due to labour shortage and supply chain inefficiency


Highly automated steel reinforcement prefabrication facilities with bulk sampling and testing model can greatly improve the efficiency of the current supply chain while safety and space utilization can also be greatly enhanced.


In this talk, the speakers will introduce the new technology of off-site automated rebar processing and assembly facility in Hong Kong and its benefits ranging from safety, space utilization, process efficiency and just-in-time delivery. They will also brief the attendees how the steel supply chain will evolve into a safer, processing efficient and environmental friendly model.

Remark :


Same CPD talk as the one held on 10 November 2016.

Due to overwhelming response, the above talk held on 10 November 2016 was overbooked by members. In order to allow interested members to attend the above talk, QSD is going to organize the same CPD talk on 22 August 2017.
