A team formed by Dr Nina Niu, Dr Leo Chen, Dr Megan Ye, Dr Diandian Liu, and Dr Kevin Wang led by Prof Wilson Lu, won the Hong Kong Construction Industry Council (CIC) Young Innovator Award 2015. The winning idea is an “i-Core” developed in Dr Wilson Lu’s team to encapsulate smart construction objects (SCOs) properties. Similar to a CPU to a computer, this ‘i-Core” can be understood as the ‘heart’ of smart construction. With this ‘i-Core’, it is possible to develop scalable and customizable smart construction, which is perceived as a promising direction of future construction. The Award Presentation Ceremony was held in the Government House on 15 December 2015 hosted by the Chief Executive, Hon Mr. LEUNG Chun-ying.
