Professional housing management is of growing importance in Hong Kong and the "Hong Kong management model" is adopted in many neighbouring high-density cities. However, there has been by far no literature on the subject of housing management practices in Hong Kong. This book is therefore crucial in understanding how housing management makes significant contributions to the safety, viability, liveability and vibrancy of our high-density and high-rise environment. Since the late 1980s, housing education in this city has developed by leaps and bounds. A recent study found that over 3,000 junior practitioners would be seeking professional training or further study for career advancement. This book is an indispensable aid to self-study or taught courses.
