About CMA

The Construction Management Awards (CMA) was first organised by the Hong Kong Institute of Construction Managers (HKICM) in 2016. It aims to recognise the achievements of construction management teams and practitioners, and also to maintain and strengthen the utmost standards of professionalism and competitiveness in the construction industry.

There are more than 1,000 construction projects in Hong Kong per year and each requires a professional working team to oversee planning, design, and construction for project completion. The Awards provides a platform for individuals and management teams to exhibit their projects with the highest expertise in terms of project management, complexity and innovation, time management, safety, health and environmental management, and financial management, which are the crucial principles of an architectural project.
