Details :

Even though the civilization of ancient China can be traced back more than 4000 years, it is a pity that China does not have many “real” extant historic buildings or heritage sites today. This situation is more extreme in cities or densely populated regions. Hong Kong is not much better, though her short history cannot be compared to that of mainland China. In recent years, there is an increasing awareness in safeguarding and restoring historic buildings or heritage sites in China as well as in other countries and regions. Governments are more ready to allocate extra resources to preserve these properties from further deterioration or complete banishment.


The scenario in the UK is quite different. In spite of the damages from bombings during World War II, a large quantity of the UK’s historic buildings or heritage sites throughout the country remain intact. In particular in the recent 10 years, due to the relative blooming economy, many of the heritage sites have been well revitalized. One of the driving forces behind is coming from the active property market.


In this talk, the Speaker will highlight the types, project nature, extent of work, the actual performance/results and lesson learned from these projects by using a number of representative cases in recent years at these three different places as a sharing of his studies in this area over the years.

Remark :

Closing Date: Extended to 25 October 2017
