Meeting Secretary of Environment of Hong Kong

It was exciting to hear from Mr KS Wong, Secretary of Environment of HK Gov, his long term plan about reduction in construction waste, food waste, electricity consumption in buildings and pollutant emission of cruises in Hong Kong at the AIAHK Annual Dinner 2015 yesterday night.

It was amazing to see how Architects endeavor to shape the built environment into a sustainable city to live in. We were also happy to share with him our bottom up approach and philosophy in prolonging the life-cycle of construction materials. Much to do!
