The changes are made so as to comply with the new Companies Ordinance, Chapter 622 (CO) commenced on 3 March 2014 which abolished the Memorandum of Association while the Articles of Association will remain as well as to sustain the Institute’s main object in promoting effective governance and advance the efficient management of construction industry by the continued development of the study and practice of professionalism in construction management and administration.

Other than the above changes, the Institute will continue to operate in its current structure and there has been no change in address and contact details (including telephone & fax numbers and e-mail address).

We look forward for your continual support of the Institute. As always, we will continue to serve our members with the same devotion and quality which you have come to expect from us.
