SINGAPORE – The prestigious Built Environment Industry (BEI) Asia Awards 2015/16 Awards Ceremony and Gala dinner took place on 19 May 2016 at ONE°15 Marina Club, a premier marina and lifestyle club nestled within Sentosa Cove.

The event was graced by our Guest of Honour; Mr. Lui Tuck Yew, Former Minister for Transport and Second Minister for Defence and was attended by over 300 guests, some of whom had flown in from overseas to witness and celebrate the triumphs of our well-deserving winners.
BEI Asia Awards 2016 now span across the globe with 25 award winners from Australia, Japan, the United States of America, Malaysia and Singapore. A combined turnover in excess of SGD$16bn were honoured for the enterprises proactive contributions to the Built Environment Industry with a focus on Green initiatives, innovation and sustainability. The importance of the contributions of the BEI players are recognised, quoting Guest-of-honour, Mr. Lui Tuck Yew; “Our nation has evolved from a rural settlement of overcrowded squatters to a modern cosmopolitan city with world-class urban infrastructure. The emergence of this new cityscape comes on the back of the relentless efforts of the built environment industry (BEI). The BEI has helped to shape not only the urban horizon but also the future of our nation.”
BEI Asia Award 2016 also saw the introduction of the “The Environmental Conservation Award”, which recognises the corporation’s efforts to create a voice for the conservation and preservation of our habitat and natural resources. Moreover, the rebranding of the Asia Green Building Award to Asia Green Business Award highlights the outstanding achievements of the local and regional companies within this sector who are at the forefront of promoting sustainability efforts in their businesses. Mr. Fong Kwok Shiung, Chairman of the Awards Organizing Committee, stated in his welcoming speech;
“They have successfully turned their green initiatives into innovative product and service offerings, which provide environmentally friendly and sustainable methods or solutions to help reduce our carbon footprint, recycle and recover from material scrapes and reusing them so as to minimise the waste they emit on a per project basis.”.
Nominees of the BEI Asia awards were required to submit a comprehensive submission kit and undergo a face-to-face interview with an independent panel of judges. Looking beyond the impressive financial growth and business model of each entry, the judges looked for organisations that have been adopting best business practices when conducting their businesses. Led by Chief Judge, Professor Willie Tan, Head of the Department of Building at the National University of Singapore, said;
“For us (judges), we not only look at their business model, strategy and vision, but also how the company looks after its own internal stakeholders and how they contribute back to society and care for the environment.”
Representatives from the High Commission of Malaysia, Myanmar Embassy, Singapore Business Federation, Society of Project Managers, Singapore Turkey Business Association and the Turkish Cultural Centre were present to witness and celebrate the Prestige of the awards, and the award winners’ Triumphs and Leadership.
