ABOUT US

STEM jobs in the United States are growing twice as fast as other fields. This huge growth has created a situation in which the demand for qualified STEM professionals is high, but the supply of qualified STEM workers is low – especially among women and minority groups.

財政司司長陳茂波發表2018/19年度財政預算案。他表示,今年開始,主要的政府基本工程項目的設計和建造將採用建築信息模擬技術。建造業議會將制訂建築信息模擬技術標準,支援業界裝備,並鼓勵私人工程項目採用此技術。

同時,政府正協助業界建立具規模和高度自動化的鋼筋預製工場,亦會在公營項目率先試行「組裝合成」建築法。

政府正研究,將現時適用於推廣環保及創新樓宇的總樓面面積寬免措施,擴展至此類建築,以及就相關的預製場展開研究,推動這種建築方法在香港更廣泛地應用。

另外,建議撥款10億元成立建造業創新及科技基金,提升企業及從業員應用新技術的能力,並支援業界應用創新科技。

合資格承建商、註冊分包商及工程顧問公司可向基金申請資助,發展所需的軟硬件及人力配套,在工程項目中採用本地或海外的創新建造技術,例如建築信息模擬技術、本地鋼筋預製工場所生產的鋼筋組件及「組裝合成」建築法等。基金亦會支援學生和建造業從業員接受創科培訓。
