Hong Kong team recognition at the Green Building Awards

We have been awarded a Merit Award at the Green Building Awards 2021 in Hong Kong, for a project that saw the conversion of the former Sai Kung Central Primary School into a residential care home and hostel, operated by the Haven of Hope Christian Service.

With the themes of ‘Shaping Liveability’ and ‘Excellence in Sustainable Built Environment’, the Green Building Awards 2021 took place in April 2022 and was organised by the Hong Kong Green Building Council and the Professional Green Building Council.

The award recognises building-related projects and organisations with outstanding performance and contributions to the sustainable built environment, and advocates for the wider adoption of green building practices throughout a building’s life cycle.

Sai Kung Central Primary School had been vacant since 2007 and the new social welfare complex was commissioned under the re-utilisation programme of vacant school buildings by the Social Welfare Department.

The project aimed to “bring a new life” to the building by transforming it into a combined welfare facility, with our support through quantity surveying and cost management services.

Established in 1950, the Haven of Hope Christian Service is one of Hong Kong’s largest health and social service organisations providing elderly, rehabilitation and healthcare services.

Brian Shuptrine, Asia Head of Real Estate, said:

It is an honour to receive the Merit Award, which recognises projects that advance sustainability and inform how our future built environment could be. This aligns to our own purpose and commitment to help our clients deliver more sustainable outcomes, transforming performance for a green, inclusive and productive world.
