‘Engineering is art’ — CIBSE President


eter Y Wong, the new President of the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE), used his inaugural address to change perceptions about building services engineers, saying that they should see

themselves as artists and practitioners.

Speaking at the Royal Academy of Engineering in London, Wong drew analogies between the principles of art that went into creating some of the world’s great masterpieces and the principles that go into creating high performing buildings. These included Hong Kong’s International Commerce Centre and Singapore’s Gardens by the Bay.

The new CIBSE President called on Engineers to see their work as an expression of the principles of integrity, professionalism and the public interest, and to be proud of creating buildings that perform well as a mark of their craftsmanship rather than for compliance or to meet minimum standards. Wong also referred to his status as the first President from the Hong Kong region.
