The Organising Committee of Quality Building Award 2016 (QBA 2016) has announced the official commencement of the award nomination period, running until 12 p.m., November 6, 2015

QBA 2016  is jointly organised by nine building and construction related institutes and associations including the Hong Kong Construction Association and the Hong Kong Institute of Construction Managers. The theme for 2016 will be New Horizons for Superiority, and the organisers hope it will be a platform for professionals to showcase the very best of their achievements.

Next year’s event will be the eighth time the Award has been bestowed, and its longevity has helped it to garner much respect both from the Hong Kong and overseas building industry. The classes of awards include Finalists, Merits, Grand Awards and the Quality Excellence Award, which represents the best among the Grand Awards.

2016 will see a few changes as noted by Cr Chung Koon Man, co-chairman of QBA 2016 Organising Committee, “To enhance the credibility, fairness and transparency, this year, we expanded the jury panel from seven to nine jurors. They come from government, academia and professional societies.”
