Building Surveyors have always made constructive contributions to the industry and played an important role in participation of works of New Development, A&A and Conversion, Maintenance and Rehabilitation of existing buildings. Given the success of the Building Surveyor Awards since 2015, HKIS BSD is pleased to host the BSA 2021 again. To echo the theme “Community.We Care”, “Community Caring Award” is newely introduced, and there are two other special awards namely “Sustainability Award” and “Value Enhancement Award” to commend Building Surveyors’ contributions in sustainable aspects, economic values, and community care in building projects.

“The theme for the BSA 2021 is ‘Community.We Care’, with emphasis on community care in building projects, which could not have come more timely. For over a year, Hong Kong has been facing the challenge of the pandemic, every aspect of our lives has been disrupted one way or the other,” Mr Michael WONG Wai-lun, Secretary for Development, HKSAR Government said, “We quickly stood up to the challenge and adapted as the pandemic developed. This could only be done with the cordial cooperation from every sector of the community and the surveying professional has been playing a pivotal role.”

“The theme reminds us as Building Surveyors that while we build and develop, we also need to find ways to safeguard people’s living environments and hence their health,” said Sr Edwin TANG Hoi-kwan, President of the HKIS at the welcome speech. Sr Billy WONG Kin-yee, Chairman of the HKIS BSD believes that the BSA is a great platform for Building Surveyors to demonstrate their competent knowledge and expertise, and raise their professional image in public.

The competition opened from November 2020 to March 2021, and accepted nominations submitted by Client/Client’s representative, Consultants and Contractors with the involvement of Building Surveyors in 3 categories including New Development, A&A and Conversion, and Maintenance and Rehabilitation. Our jury panels, constituted of veterans from academics and renowned industry professionals, assessed the 18 finalists’ projects by the following criteria: Expertise of Building Surveyors, Design, Project Management, Sustainability, Value Enhancement, Community Caring, and/ or Contractor Practice. A Grand Award, Special Awards, and Winner and Merit Award(s) for each category were also granted during BSA 2021.

“This year we have seen an increased number of entries and overall high standards of the finalists. This shows a growing recognition of the Awards by the Building Surveying industry. Regardless of which award a finalist received, she/he is already a champion after going through rigorous assessments and setting a very high benchmark to emulate,” said Sr Daniel CHANG Wai-ip, Chairman of Organising Committee of BSA 2021.
