The CIBSE Hong Kong Region celebrated its 45th anniversary with a dinner in March. It was CIBSE’s first non-UK region and remains the largest one, representing 15% of the Institution’s membership. Around 450 guests attended the event, and the guest of honour was Victor Tai, JP, Under Secretary for Housing, The Government of the HKSAR.

This milestone in the region’s history was an opportunity to recognise and celebrate the significant contribution and dedication of the CIBSE community in Hong Kong in expanding the influence of building services engineering globally.

Over the past four and a half decades, CIBSE Hong Kong has played a pivotal role in championing sustainability, energy efficiency and excellence in the built environment.

It has forged long-lasting partnerships with many organisations, which value its members’ contributions. Most notably, the partnerships with the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers, ASHRAE Hong Kong, and the Hong Kong Polytechnic University demonstrate the progress that has been made in collaborating to deliver a sustainable future for all.

Gary Chiang, the region’s chair, said: ‘CIBSE Hong Kong has achieved a huge amount in its 45 years and continues to go from strength to strength. We will keep raising CIBSE’s professional status in the region and highlight the impact and effectiveness of engineering solutions in Hong Kong.’

CIBSE President Adrian Catchpole added: ‘I would like to extend my sincere thanks to everyone who has supported CIBSE Hong Kong over the past 45 years, without whom our leadership in Hong Kong would simply not be possible – you are some of our greatest ambassadors and we are indebted to you all.’

Mr. Victor Tai, JP, the Under Secretary for Housing, was Guest of Honour and gave a speech at the event.
