Hong Kong Children’s Hospital scooped highest accolade alongside five outstanding projects

HONG KONG SAR - Media OutReach - 3 June 2021 - The results of Quality Building Award (QBA) 2020 were announced and presented at the QBA 2020 Award Presentation Ceremony today (2 June 2021) at the Grand Hyatt Hong Kong. The jury panel of 15 property sector leaders have recognised exceptional building projects under 6 award categories, with Hong Kong Children's Hospital winning both the top Quality Excellence Award and the Grand Award of Hong Kong Non-Residential (New Building - Government, Institution of Community) Category.

 

Co-organised by nine leading professional institutions of the property sector in Hong Kong, the biennial Quality Building Award marks its 10th edition in 2020. This edition celebrates property professionals and projects which have transformed the community through building with heart and care. Other Grand Award winners include One * ArtLane (Hong Kong Residential (Single Building) Category); On Tai Estate Public Rental Housing Development (Hong Kong Residential (Multiple Buildings) Category); Victoria Dockside (Hong Kong Non-Residential (New Building – Non-Government, Institution of Community) Category); and Tai Kwun - The Cente for Heritage and Arts (Hong Kong Building (Renovation / Revitalization) Category).

 

Winner of the Quality Excellence Award, Hong Kong Children's Hospital will receive the "Excellence Cup" on which names of all past and future winning projects have been or will be engraved. As the hall of fame of Hong Kong's property sector, the Cup will be retained by current winner until the next edition.

 

"As you are aware, we have recently enacted local legislation to implement an improved electoral system in accordance with the amended Annex I and Annex II to the Basic Law approved by the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress. The improved electoral system will ensure the faithful implementation of "One Country, Two Systems" and "patriots administering Hong Kong", effectively putting an end to the political chaos which impeded Hong Kong's progress in recent years. It will provide an environment for all of us to build Hong Kong's future, and I do mean it literally. The Government will spend at least HK$100 billion annually in capital works projects in the coming years. Together with the private sector, we forecast that the annual construction output in Hong Kong will total around HK$300 billion, generating over 300 000 employment opportunities. Our building and construction sector, and the wide-ranging industries and companies that drive it, can look forward to a future filled with opportunities. Judging by the Award entries, I'm confident that you will fill those opportunities with professionalism, care and passion," said Mrs Carrie Lam, GBM, GBS, our Guest of Honour, Chief Executive of the HKSAR.

 

"It encourages us to receive an enthusiastic response this year," said Ir Peter Mok, Chairman of the QBA 2020 Organizing Committee. "In a time of changes and uncertainties, the building industry safeguards the betterment of the society with unswerving commitment, heart and care. Their professionalism and pursuit of excellence has transformed the community and will bring profound benefits for generations to come. On behalf of the Organizing Committee, I thank the jury panels for making the uneasy decision of choosing the best from the best."

 

Mr Yu Tak Cheung, JP, Chairman of Jury Panel, said: "The competition of the Quality Building Award is fierce this year with a good number of outstanding nominations. The built environment of Hong Kong has long been known for its efficiency and rapid development. We are delighted to see that our building industry has continuously pushed beyond limits to excel themselves. This no doubt contributes significantly to Hong Kong's proud status as Asia's leading city."

 

The next Quality Building Award will be presented in 2022 and led by the Hong Kong Institute of Construction Managers. Nomination will open by year end 2021.
