Quality Building Award 2020 open for nomination
The Quality Building Award 2020 (QBA 2020) is now officially open for nomination. QBA is a biennial award that recognizes buildings of outstanding quality and those that demonstrate outstanding teamwork. QBA 2020 will mark the award's tenth edition, with the theme being "Transforming Communities' Build with Heart and Care". Co-founded in 2002 by nine of Hong Kong's leading professional institutions, QBA has become established as the one of the property sector's most coveted honours.
For this year's award, the organizers hope to reinforce an important truth - that quality buildings are built with heart and care to serve people's needs first, while transforming communities for the better. This also provides a platform for professional building project teams to be recognized for positive contributions to the community through high quality building work.
In response to QBA's growing recognition outside of Hong Kong, this year's organizing committee has, for the first time, invited a mainland Chinese juror to join the jury panel - Mr Liang Jian Ming, President, Guangdong Construction Industry Association. This decision also reflects the increasing number of Hong Kong-Mainland collaborations in an array of high-quality building projects (some involved in the Greater Bay Area initiative).
Ir Peter K W Mok, Chairman of QBA 2020 Organizing Committee, said: "It is an honour to be selected to chair QBA's tenth edition. For this year's awards, we hope to emphasize the commitment building professionals have to strengthening communities while remembering that the building industry is about putting people first. We also recognize the growing room for cooperation across borders in an increasingly integrated world, and so we hope including a juror from outside of Hong Kong will send a positive signal in our industry to cooperate more with others."
