FABRICATION AND MATERIAL TECHNOLOGIES LAB

The HKU Fabrication and Material Technologies Lab is dedicated to the exploration of innovative construction techniques. With state-of-the-art fabrication facilities at the University of Hong Kong and situated within the Pearl River Delta’s global manufacturing region, the Centre is well-positioned to conduct research that spans boundaries between academia and industry. Research ranges from projects that deal with advanced computational techniques to projects that tap into low-tech, regional labor skill sets.  A series of industrial partners connected to the Centre expand the potential for knowledge exchange and open pathways for practical applications and large-scale production. Current research foci include re-configurable form-work systems for concrete casting, development of novel structural systems, non-standard modules for building facades and automation of traditional joinery systems.
