Shui On Building Contractors Limited (SOBC) is a leading building contractor in public housing construction in Hong Kong. Since 1981, it has completed numerous public housing units as well as shopping centres and public amenities in government estates, often pioneering new town developments such as those in Ma On Shan, Tin Shui Wai and Tung Chung.

The company is among a few approved by the Hong Kong Housing Authority to tender for certain design-and-build and complex projects. Moreover, the company has been selected for inclusion in the new category of Quality Maintenance Contractor and enjoys more tendering opportunities for the Housing Authority's maintenance contracts.

In keeping with the Group's philosophy of quality and excellence, SOBC was the first contractor in Hong Kong to achieve ISO 9002 accreditation for building works in 1992 which was successfully converted to ISO 9001: 2008. It was also accredited with ISO 14001 in environmental management system certification in 1999 and OHSAS 18001 occupational health and safety certification in 2000. The company was awarded the "Contractor of the Year Award" by the Hong Kong Housing Authority for its outstanding achievements in construction quality, project progress, and site safety management.

In safety and health management, SOBC was a front-runner and achieved remarkable results. The company won the Best Building Works Contractor Award in the safety campaign of the Hong Kong Housing Authority for seven consecutive years from 1992 to 1998, and continues to win awards every year in health, safety and environment campaigns organised by the Hong Kong SAR's Works Bureau, Labour Department, Occupational Health and Safety Council and other institutions.
