THEi has been listed as the only academic institute co-organizer of Sustainable Slope Landscaping Award
Technological and Higher Education Institute of Hong Kong (THEi) has been invited as the only academic institute co-organizer of the Sustainable Slope Landscaping Award organized by the Geotechnical Engineering Office (GEO) of the Civil Engineering and Development Department (CEDD) of the HKSAR.
The Sustainable Slope Landscaping Award is an event that marked the fifth anniversary of Landslip Prevention and Mitigation Programme under the GEO. It aims to commend excellent landscaping works for man-made slopes and natural hillsides and the contributions of the landscaping and engineering industries, which aligns with the core objective of GEO: to promote slope greening and landscaping. Over the years, GEO has been improving techniques on slope greening and landscaping with consideration of ecological development.
The award ceremony was held on 30th October, 2015 at the Lecture Hall of the Hong Kong Space Museum. We are honored to have Professor Leslie Chen, Dean of Faculty of Design and environment, being invited to serve as one of the organizing committee member and Juror for the award to evaluate the 27 nominated slope projects under Landslip Prevention and Mitigation Programme. Professor Chen appreciated that all the nominated projects demonstrated good slope landscaping techniques with integration of ecologically sustainable features.
