Relocation of transitional housing Nam Cheong 220 begins, parts to be reassembled in Tai Po

The relocation of Nam Cheong 220, the city’s first transitional housing project that adopts the modular integrated construction (MiC) approach, started on Saturday morning. The units are set to be reassembled and reused for another project in Tai Po.
Chan Nap-ming, a project director from the Housing Bureau, said that today’s works helped put a perfect end to this transitional housing project.

Yet, he stressed that the mission for these module parts has yet to end, as they will be reused in another housing project.

Registered engineer Cheung Yiu-sun pointed out that all electrical and mechanical appliances would be removed before the dismantling, and there would be a safety net to ensure public safety.

Cheung estimated the transportation will take about a month, for the modules will be sent to a warehouse in Hung Shui Kiu for examinations and then to Wong Yue Tan in Tai Po for reassembling.

Cheung also emphasized that all the parts and modules will be reused, including the interior furnishing. Yet, sewers and pipes will not be reused due to health concerns.

Located on Nam Cheong Street in Sham Shui Po, Nam Cheong 220 was the first structural steel transitional housing project in Hong Kong that adopted the MiC approach.

The process, from the start of the assembly of units to the residents' intake, took less than a year.

The project was coordinated by the Hong Kong Council of Social Service and operated by the Tung Wah Group of Hospitals, Nam Cheong 220 was a four-story building with 89 one to three-person units.

It aimed to help those who have been waiting for public rental housing for at least three years and were inadequately housed or others in urgent need of community support. It also aimed to provide them with a more appropriate living environment.

During its operation between August 2020 and November 2022, it helped improve the living environment and quality of living of a total of 175 residents from 94 households before it ended in November last year.
