Project Initiation, Development and Management





Like barristers in their legal chamber, members of Project Chambers operate as independent professionals. However, the strength of the Project Chambers concept is that members, all of whom know each other well, can form multidisciplinary teams to serve the needs of any project, bringing together their collective talents to provide a broad-based, tailor-made service.

Members are concerned with the introduction and implementation of innovative solutions that provide sustainable solutions for life in Hong Kong, a dynamic and cosmopolitan metropolis.



Services offered include feasibility studies, design, planning and project management; contracts administration; dispute resolution and insurance programmes; and design of operations, training, health and safety, environment, maintenance, management and audit programmes. These services are delivered either by team leadership or by providing support to a client’s own organisation, with the goal of creating the desired overall outcome. Project Chambers has links with professionals in many countries worldwide, and keeps abreast of worldwide development in technology and management.

How to Use Project Chambers


Clients interested in the services offered by members of Project Chambers may either make personal contact through an individual member or call our office for support.



Each individual member of Project Chambers has signed a declaration to the effect that all confidential aspects of each assignment shall remain exclusive to the client on whose behalf that assignment is undertaken. Clients may be assured of complete confidentiality.


Project Chambers is a group of senior professionals with a wide range of experience in project development and management covering all aspects of the built environment and its technical and supporting infrastructure. Members have outstanding track records in the initiation, development, management and operation of projects across a broad range of professional areas.


Like barristers in their legal chamber, members of Project Chambers operate as independent professionals. However, the strength of the Project Chambers concept is that members can form multidisciplinary teams that bring together their collective talents to provide a broad-based, tailor-made service across the entire lifespan of a project and its subsequent operation.
