RICS at 150
Celebrate our 150-year history
8 MAY 2018
RICS is committed to the promotion of industry innovation, and held the RICS Awards China on 4 May, for the second consecutive year, to celebrate the highest levels of professionalism.
The Awards attracted huge market attention and a large number of submissions thanks to last year’s success. In 2018, the Awards include 11 categories, which includes the addition of award categories to reflect market trends: City Regeneration Team and Best BIM Application.
"The RICS Awards China showcase and recognise best practice to inspire the market and build a cross-industry platform. It is good to see so many remarkable teams and projects this year, which signifies the outstanding professional competence and innovation of China's built environment." Mr Gao Shi Bin, Head Juror & Independent Non-Executive Director, China Jinmao Holding Group
On the same day, RICS also held the inaugural International Whole-Life Construction Consultation Summit in Shanghai, where 600 industry elites gathered to focus on the improvement of the construction industry.
Last year, the State Council released the 'Suggestions on promoting the sustainable and healthy development of the construction industry', initiating the concept of Whole-life construction consultation. The term mandates the management and control of the whole life of construction on a dynamic, quantified, scientific and systematic basis. Taking actions in this way benefits the integration of industry resources and the life-cycle extension of the construction industry chain to stimulate project innovation.
"As one of the first companies to promote the concept of whole-life construction consultation, we are glad to cooperate with RICS and other colleagues in this industry to push the development of standards and practices in China. We want to wholeheartedly assist all Chinese companies to achieve innovative transformation." Mr Wang Hong Yi, President, Chenyue Project Consultancy Group
