The University of Hong Kong Faculty of Architecture’s Obituary to Professor LI Shirong

 

Professor Li ShirongIn Memory of Professor Li Shirong

We are saddened by the passing of Professor Li Shirong, Professor in the Faculty of Construction Management and Real Estate, Chongqing University, Deputy Mayor of Shapingba District, and Deputy Director of the Chongqing Economic and Trade Commission, Chongqing Government. Professor Li was also the past and first female President of the Chartered Institute of Building, UK.  Her passing is a great loss to both the academic and the professional communities.

Professor Li obtained her Doctoral degree from Reading University, UK, and was a renowned scholar in construction project management, public project procurement, and international construction. She was well known for her pivotal role in bridging the construction management communities in China and the UK. Professor Li has been a friend and great supporter of our Department and will always remain special to us in many ways.

Professor Li contributed substantially to China and was always concerned about young people.  In addition to Professor Li’s charisma as a scholar and professional in her field, she was approachable and affable, and hence we feel deeply our loss in losing her as a colleague and friend.  We extend our deepest condolences to Professor Li’s family.
