Advocate Forward-Moving Technologies and Advanced Management Applications to Attain the Professional Industry Standard

HONG KONG SAR – Media OutReach – 8 March 2022 – Co-organised by The Hong Kong Association of Property Management Companies (HKAPMC), The Hong Kong Institute of Surveyors Property and Facility Management Division (HKIS PFMD), Quality Property & Facility Management Award (QPFMA) 2022 is now officially open for nominations. With the theme “Quality | Professional | Forward Moving | Advance”, the award recognises outstanding achievements and excellence in upholding quality and professional standards by applying forward-moving technologies and advanced management applications in the property and facility management industry.

The QPFMA is a biennial award which aspires to honour and recognise outstanding developments and professionals in the property and facility management industry in Hong Kong. An Online Award Briefing Session was held with more than 220 attendees on 8 March 2022. During the session, the QPFMA 2022 Organising Committee introduced the overview of the event, and provided detailed explanations of the judging panels, selection criteria and award categories.

As in previous year, there will be three awards categories, with them being residential, non-residential and the newly added award category, titled Refurbishment / Renovation Property Management. Since there are more than 10,000 buildings in Hong Kong that are over 50-year-old and have not undergone any renovation, QPFMA would like to seize this opportunity to advocate the outstanding old building renovation projects, as a mean to resolve the aging buildings problems in Hong Kong. The Refurbishment / Renovation category has been divided into three awards: Large- & Medium-Scale Residential Property and Office Building, this category is now open for local residential and office properties to showcase their renewal strategies in property and facility management.

“The award recognises high-quality and professional property and facility management, and to strengthen a better industry through mutual enrichment in the meantime. A new Refurbishment / Renovation award category is established this year with the intention to encourage more urban renovation projects. With the application of smart technologies and advanced management system, I am confident that we will be able to address the housing shortage problem in Hong Kong.” said QPFMA 2022 Organising Committee Chairman, Prof Johnnie C K CHAN, SBS, BBS, JP.

“The implementation of the property management licensing system is the key to uphold the professional development in the property and facility management industry with the highest quality standard. We believe that by applauding the phenomenal property management projects through the awards will not only help to promote the industry development, but to raise the public awareness of the importance of property management services in our society.” said QPFMA 2022 Head Juror, Hon Tony TSE Wai-chuen, BBS, JP.
