Another year has passed. And a successful one. We have currently a few construction sites in Hong Kong and China, a diversity of projects, ranging from master plan to public space to commercial, residential and hotel design.
One of our projects won the Beam Plus Platinum Award last months and we are proud about his achievement since it is a challenging operation to get this certification for a residential tower.
One of our colleagues, Susanne Trumpf, was certified a BIM consultant of Graphisoft. And we are moving forward with the full integration of BIM into our work process.
Ulrich Kirchhoff has been appointed member of the Advisory Committee on the Appearance of Bridges and Associated Structures (ACABAS) and is hoping to contribute to the development of Hong Kong as a sustainable and visionary city.
Of course running and architecture business will never be stable. But you cannot expect stability from architecture alone. Unless there is a profitable side business, architecture will always under perform economically. We expect things to worsen next year.
One of the challenges for the next year is the expansion of services and businesses under ICE. Further announcements in due time.
Until then we wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Successful New Year 2017.
