Luban Awards

 

“China Construction Engineering Luban Award (National Quality Engineering)” (hereafter referred to as “Luban Award”) – former “Construction Engineering Luban Award”, which was set up in 1987, is the guiding principle of “quality first in the matter of vital and lasting importance” executed by China Architecture League, promoting the all-round improvement in the quality of domestic construction engineering and striving to international advanced standard under the support of Ministry of Construction. As the Grand Achievement Award for national construction engineering quality, Luban Award shall be granted annually to construction companies with first-class projects (the appraisal shall be implemented once a year whilst the awarding shall be implemented twice a year starting from 2010-2011).

 

In Dec. 1993, after reorganization from China Architecture League China into China Construction Industry Association, this assessment activity has been organized and carried out. In 1996, China Construction Industry Association’s “Construction Engineering Luban Award” and “National Quality Engineering Award” combined together and named as “China Construction Engineering Luban Award (National Quality Engineering)”. The specific appraisal work shall be responsible by the China Construction Industry Association. For two decades, the “Construction Engineering Luban Award” carried out in the construction industry has earned widespread attention by the features of “Stringent Standards, Excellent Quality and Good Reputation”.

 

The “Construction Engineering Luban Award” and “National Quality Engineering Award” has merged into “China Construction Engineering Luban Award (National Quality Engineering)” since 1996. And it is determined that the “Luban Award” shall be organized and appraised by China Construction Industry Association and reported to Ministry of Construction for review and approval. The “Luban Award” shall be appraised annually with 45 amount of reward.

 

The “Luban Award” shall abide by stringent election methods and procedures for declaration and review with strict discipline. The review shall be charged by Review Committee, and China Construction Industry Association shall only take charge of accepting declaration, organization of preliminary examination and engineering review, without interfering specific appraisal work. The review Committee shall be consisted of experts from various departments and regions, and it shall be appraised and determined by secret vote.
