The BS Division is organising a series of events to provide opportunities for young engineers to expand their horizons, experience something special together and better connect with other young engineers in the building services industry.
A Fencing Demo Class was arranged on 11 October 2021 to kick-off the series.
During the class the 18 young engineers and 3 seniors participated, learned the right posture and techniques for fencing. After two hours of tiring training, the young engineers communicated well together especially during the break. Smiles of satisfaction were shown on the faces of all the participants after the class – the best reward for the organiser.
On behalf of the Organising Committee, we would like to express our sincere thanks to Mr Jeffrey Chang and his team for their intensive and comprehensive training. We would also like to express our heartfelt thanks to the BS Division for their support, not just for this activity, but also for their willingness to nurture and bring together our next generation of engineers.
The captioned networking lunch was held on the morning of 2 October 2021. The Joint Institution Sport Tournament was co-organised by the BS Division of the HKIE, American Society of Heating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) Hong Kong Chapter, The Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) Hong Kong Region and The Institution of Fire Engineers (IFE) (Hong Kong Branch).
Normally, each year different institutions take turns to lead a friendly Joint Institution Sports Tournament. However, due to the COVID situation the event has been postponed for the past years. But this year, it was agreed to hold a networking lunch instead.
The event started with an Opening Speech by Ir Raymond Tam (Chairman of BS Division) followed by a brief introduction by Mr Joe Chow (President-Elect of ASHRAE Hong Kong Chapter), Ir Vincent Ma (Chair of CIBSE Hong Kong Region) and Mr K Y Lee (President of IFE Hong Kong Branch).
The highlight of the event was the mini group and individual games before lunch. The games were played with table tennis balls and the participants enjoyed. There was also a bingo session with small prizes for the winners. The mini game results were:
- Champion: IFE Hong Kong Branch
- First-runner-up: BS Division
- Second-runner-up: ASHRAE Hong Kong Chapter
- Third-runner up: CIBSE Hong Kong Region
The lunch ended with closing remarks by Ir Raymond Tam. All the participants had a wonderful time and we look forward to the next occasion which will be led by the ASHRAE Hong Kong Chapter.
