The biennial Building Surveyor Awards celebrates another milestone with the introduction of a special award focusing on caring practice

Organised by the Building Surveying Division of the Hong Kong Institute of Surveyors (HKIS-BSD), the biennial Building Surveyor Awards programme was established in 2015. It aims to enhance public recognition of projects that have significant input from building surveyors. The awards are in three categories: New Development; A&A and Conversion; and Maintenance and Rehabilitation.

The Building Surveyor Awards 2019 iteration (BSA 2019), themed 'Go Beyond with Care', was held on July 23 at JW Marriott Hotel Hong Kong with a presentation ceremony and gala dinner, attended by industry peers, guests and judges, including the guest of honour Secretary for Development of the HKSAR Government, Michael Wong Wai-lun.

The 16 finalist projects were judged on six criteria: Expertise of Building Surveyors, Design, Project Management, Sustainability, Value Management and Caring Practice. Notable winners included Caritas – Hong Kong, which won the Grand Award and was the winner in the category of New Development – Client / Client's Representative for its Caritas Institute of Higher Education project.

In addition to the Sustainability Award and Value Enhancement Award, a new special Caring Practice Award was introduced this year to commend contributions to projects with caring for build-ability and/or maintainability, health and safety concerns, constructional and/or operational friendliness. The award went to the HKSAR Government Housing Department for Connect Old and New – Addition of Lift Towers at Cheung Ching Estate, which also won in the category of A&A and Conversion Award – Client / Client's Representative.

"The competition wins public recognition of the contribution of building surveyors in shaping the built environment, commended in terms of design, innovation, management and sustainability," said Winnie Shiu, acting president of HKIS.
