Marks returns to Hong Kong after working in Kuala Lumpur and Singapore. He was previously working at the CSA Building Services Consulting Engineers, where he was leading its technical team and deliverables in Southeast Asia.
Informed by 16 years of working experience in Asia Pacific and the United Kingdom as a chartered electrical engineer, Andrew Marks will manage Cundall Hong Kong’s local team of engineers, expanding upon its MEP (Mechanical, Electrical and Public Health), Specialist Lighting and Sustainability expertise.
Marks also has extensive experience in the healthcare sector. He has presented on the design and creation of healthcare MEP guidelines and is a member of the International Academy of Health and Design’s (IADH) International Design Quality Standard Committee.
“I am pleased to be joining a company that has an outstanding track record in Hong Kong, [which] puts sustainability at the heart of its business and works on interesting projects around the world. I look forward to being part of the Cundall community,” says Marks.

Established in 1976, Cundall has offices in 11 countries worldwide. The global office is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, as Cundall Hong Kong hits its eighth. For the last three years, the Hong Kong office has been experiencing consistent growth.
The appointment of Marks in the region follows that of Amie Shuttleworth, who joined the team this year as Cundall’s Global Head of Sustainability. Shuttleworth is currently based in Hong Kong.
