Since its inauguration in 2015, CMA has been driving the development of professionalism in the industry and attracting newcomers through recognising professionals from the wider industry such as construction managers, site managers and engineers. It has received overwhelming attention and attracted high quality submissions from contesting parties. In its fifth edition this year, CMA has raised its bar again with the aim of pushing the boundaries of industry experts and standards.
New categories in civil in response to trends in local development
Based on government predictions, the total expenses on construction works in the next few years by public and private sectors will reach HKD300 billion p.a., indicating a strong demand in manpower and volume. Construction Management Awards 2024 has introduced new team and individual award categories in civil projects to recognise the contributions by professional experts and encourage the sharing of best practices and knowledge. These categories accept nominations from all kinds of civil projects, including public works and all infrastructure construction, with a total contract value of over HKD200 billion to reflect project complexity and exceptional requirements.
Awards evolve with time to help Hong Kong construction industry raise its standard
The Excellent Construction Team Award has earned extensive regards from the industry over the past few CMA editions. In this edition the Award will focus on building projects with a contract value of over HKD200 billion to reflect the needs of local urban development in the next few years.
Cr Terence MANG, President of Hong Kong Institute of Construction Managers mentions, “The Government’s enthusiasm in launching various urban development and infrastructure projects means that Hong Kong will kick off different kinds of works projects in the very near future. Through these awards, HKICM recognises outstanding professionals and management teams who have played key roles in the construction industry, thereby raising the overall standard of the industry and increasing the visibility of construction professionals, which ultimately attracts more talents to drive the long-term development of Hong Kong.”
