Although construction progress has slowed to a crawl, Michael knows as a Project Manager, it is now more important than ever to protect the health of his employees, bring leadership, and to never abandon one’s spirit for self-improvement. Because of the coronavirus pandemic, Stanley has recently been able to spend more time with family, read books on architecture, and establish a better work-life balance. The extra time has brought on new inspiration, which he hopes to channel into creating more innovative and audacious construction projects. In addition to being a talented painter, Will is also great at putting together complex machinery. During the coronavirus epidemic, he did his part for society by leading a team of colleagues to help a local mask manufacturer set up a production line. Truly an inspiration! Like many others, Jack took his teaching online during the Covid-19 pandemic to ensure his students were able to continue their studies. As an Associate Professor at HKUST, Jack also used the extra time to read up on the latest developments in BIM. He hopes that after the pandemic, both students and professors alike will once again cherish the face to face interaction missing from online classes.
