Apart from the above award categories for assessment on overall FM performance of various areas of core competency, a “Theme Award” would be granted to organizations with outstanding achievements in a specific area. A separate Panel of Judges, comprising specialists from the respective field, would review and assess that part of submission with respect to the selected area of core competency.

While the “Theme Award” focuses on “Asset Enhancement” this year, the Panel of Judges would evaluate nominated facilities' performance with reference to strategies and practices adopted by the facility management profession to realize/enhance the defined values, that merits should be given to those facilities which have successfully complied with objectives to enhance asset values beyond the originally established ones.

  1. Residential: nominated facilities under the categories of Large-scale Residential, Medium-scale Residential, Small-scale Residential as well as Public Rental and Subsidized Purchase Housing
  2. Commercial: nominated facilities under the categories of Office Building and Retail
