Details :

The construction industry has been facing a number of challenges including tremendous workload, high construction cost, declining productivity, unsatisfactory site safety and experienced a series of incidents recorded on certain mega-projects.  These challenges and others have led to an important juncture whereby change is needed to ensure the sustainability of the industry and long-term development of the territory.


The 2018 Policy Address announced that the Government will lead the industry to make changes by implementing “ Construction 2.0”advocating three pillars - “Innovation”, “Professionalisation” and “Revitalisation” to uplift the capability and sustainability of the industry, increase productivity, enhance regulation and quality assurance, improve site safety and reduce environmental impact.
