Quality Building Award 2018 results released
The Quality Building Award 2018 (QBA 2018) results have officially been announced at the QBA 2018 Award Presentation Ceremony, held at the Grand Ballroom of Grand Hyatt Hong Kong on June 15. QBA was co-founded in 2002 by nine of Hong Kong’s leading property sector institutions and has been jointly organized on a biennial basis since. It has become established as the most unbiased, prestigious industry award in building sector. Among the nine co-organizing institutions, QBA 2018 was led by the Hong Kong Institute of Surveyors. QBA 2020 will be led by the Hong Kong Quality Assurance Agency.
     In addition to around 500 industry leaders attending in person, the ceremony was also attended by Mr Cheung Kin-chung, Acting Chief Executive of the HKSAR and Mr Wong Wai Lun, Secretary for Development of the Government of the HKSAR. QBA 2018 features six main categories with “Grand Award” and “Merit” awards. Of all the winners, a special “Quality Excellence Award” will be awarded to the best overall project. A panel of 13 jurors of diverse professional backgrounds assesses the projects according to strict criteria.
     Mr Cheung Kin-chung said: "The theme of the 2018 Award is "Driven by Profession • United for Success" which echoes well with the governance philosophy of the current-term Government. Quality buildings are essential ingredients for a growing and dynamic metropolis like Hong Kong. The Quality Building Award further raises the benchmark and widens the quality spectrum for excellent construction projects in Hong Kong and beyond. The finalists presented to us this evening demonstrate the highest quality building standards, combining innovation, sustainability and dedication to team work."
     Mr Lai Yuk Fai, Chairman of the QBA 2018 Organizing Committee, said: “This year’s theme, ‘Driven by Profession, United for Success’, aims to reinforce QBA’s vision and express the founding philosophy of QBA – to unite professionals from diverse backgrounds and institutional membership bases in the spirit of pursuing excellence. I would also like to thank our guests of honor, jurors, advisors, fellow organizers and sponsors for their sincere contributions to the event’s success.”
     Dr Cheung Tin Cheung, Chairman of the QBA 2018 Jury Panel, said: “This year’s awards were extremely competitive, which is a testament to how dedicated and proficient our city’s building professionals are. As one of Asia’s leading world cities, it is important for our industry to continue embracing the spirit of competition and working towards a better future. I would like to congratulate all of this year’s Grand Award and Merit winners and thank my fellow jury panel members for all their hard work.”
