Mr. Fan Hua, Deputy Chief Engineer from Bao Ye Group, gave a detailed introduction on the development status of the building industrialization, the new efforts to promote prefabricated buildings and its pilot scheme. China also faces a lack of off-site construction component manufacturers and of skilled workers in this field. The standardization might further entail inflexibility of design and monotone considerations. Nevertheless, building industrialization does allow for better quality control and accuracy eventually resulting in improved building quality. The new regulatory framework is hopefully to be issued by MOHURD in October 2014.
