    Under the theme “Surveying for a Sustainable Future,” HKIS Awards 2024 aim to pay tribute to the surveyors for their substantial contributions in creating a sustainable future. The Awards celebrate outstanding achievements in development projects that prioritise sustainability and contribute to a greener and more eco-friendly environment. Aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals set by the United Nations, the Awards seek to emphasize the crucial role of surveyors in sustainable development, fostering a culture of sustainable practices in the industry and promoting a sustainable future for Hong Kong. Additionally, the HKIS Excellence in Surveying Award will be presented to the project with exceptional overall quality, deemed the best among all the Grand Award Winners.

    In response to the growing involvement of surveyors in projects outside Hong Kong, a new award category, Project outside Hong Kong Award, is introduced. This category acknowledges the significant contribution of Surveyors to projects beyond the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. Projects from mainland China and overseas are encouraged to participate.

    Sr Paul Wong, President of the Hong Kong Institute of Surveyors, stated, “It is my privilege to bring together the six surveying divisions and pay tribute to the remarkable surveyors who have made significant contributions to the development of Hong Kong, in Mainland and overseas. This award serves as a platform to showcase the exceptional work of our surveyors and promote our professional image to the public.”

    Sr Prof Winnie Shiu, Chairlady of the HKIS Awards 2024 Organising Committee, remarked, ” The HKIS Awards 2024 has two newly added emphases to enhance sustainable development. The first one is Sustainability Values, Processes, and Impact, which encompasses innovative sustainable practices, energy-saving strategies, government policies and procedures, as well as their environmental, social and economic impact. The other focus is Innovation and Technology, which stresses feasibility, adoption of technologies, cost-effectiveness, comfort and well-being.”

    Sr CK Lau, JP, Convenor of the HKIS Awards 2024 Jury Panel, shared valuable tips to potential applicants, “Surveyors play a vital role in building a sustainable future. I hope to see participating projects matching the award theme by demonstrating innovative technologies and sustainable solutions, in order to highlight the project contribution from surveyors.”
