The Announcement of Quality Building Award 2020 Results

Hong Kong, 2 June 2021 — The results of Quality Building Award (QBA) 2020 were announced and presented at the QBA 2020 Award Presentation Ceremony at the Grand Hyatt Hong Kong. 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.

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 Category. Other Grand Award winners include One • ArtLane; On Tai Estate Public Rental Housing Development; Victoria Dockside; and Tai Kwun—The Cente for Heritage and Arts.

“The Government will spend at least HKD100 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 HKD300 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, the Guest of Honour, Chief Executive of the HKSAR.

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.”

“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,” said Ir Peter Mok, Chairman of the QBA 2020 Organizing Committee.

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.
