CPD Code : Formal Events
Speaker : Sr Gigi Mok and Sr Anderson Lam

Sr Gigi Mok is working for Caritas HK as a project manager for a new building project called Caritas Institute of Higher Education, which was formerly known as Caritas Francis Hsu College and established in 1985. The new campus adjoining the existing Caritas Bianchi College of Careers was envisioned as a step towards the establishment of the first Catholic University in Hong Kong – Saint Francis University. The Campus was to inaugurate an identity for this University and to serve as a friendly neighborhood campus providing state-of-art facilities for learning and career development opportunities. The new campus comprises multimedia lecture theaters, classrooms, tutorial rooms, laboratories, offices, library, chapel, café and roof gardens for 3,200 students. This project was presented with the Winner Award and the Grand Award under the Client/ Client’s Representative group of the New Development category during the Building Surveyor Award 2019 (BSA 2019) ceremony held on 23 July 2019.

Sr Anderson Lam is working for David S.K. Au & Associates Ltd. as a Director and project manager for a prescribed repair and renovation project for a private estate called Mei Foo Sun Chuen Stage IV, involving the common part of a fully occupied residential development comprising of 12 blocks residential buildings, car park and commercial portion. Throughout the planning and management of this repair and renovation work to the development aged over 45 years, difficulties were encountered in repairing extensive elements under tight budget as well as in improving substandard designs and materials in order to achieve a more sustainable and safe environment. Meanwhile, since the entire development was fully occupied with residents, specific and practical works arrangement was also adopted to minimize nuisances. The project has been eventually managed to be carried out in a cost-effective and down-to-earth way without imposing heavy financial burden to owners. This project was presented with the Winner Award under the Consultant group of the Maintenance and Rehabilitation category during the BSA 2019 ceremony held on 23 July 2019.
