To facilitate communication with external stakeholders and experience sharing with industry peers and government representatives, ArchSD has organised and participated in a wide range of social activities. In 2012, the Department took part in a total of over 90 events, including exhibitions, group visits, conferences and seminars, talks and briefings, media interviews, etc.
Themed with "Flora Delights", Hong Kong Flower Show 2012 was organised by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department from 16 to 25 March at Victoria Park to showcase beautiful flowers, as well as landscape and floral designs. The Flower Show 2012 has attracted around 560,000 visitors in total.
The China Design Exhibition
The China Design Exhibition 2012 themed "Times•Creation" was held at Guan Shan Yue Art Museum in Shenzhen from 7 December 2012 to 26 February 2013.
More than 130 projects from four design disciplines (i.e. graphic design, product design, space design and crossover design) were being selected for the exhibition. ArchSD's Diamond Hill Crematorium Project was honoured to be invited for this public demonstration.
As a part of our social responsibility, we have been actively sharing these experiences in construction design and building with the industries and the general public. Our department set up a booth to showcase our projects and services to the general public in the InnoCarnival 2012. The event was organised by the Innovation and Technology Commission (ITC) at the Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks in November 2012.
Our Assistant Director (Building Services), Mr. S. K. Ho, JP was invited as one of the guests to share the Hong Kong's sustainability challenges and opportunities in an environmental conference in November 2012. He mentioned that ArchSD will continue to support Government to take the lead to implement energy efficiency in its buildings after the launch of Building Energy Efficiency Ordinance.
