Caspar Baum, Surbana Jurong’s Director of Aviation, is the winner of the Mike Davis Award for lifetime achievement, conferred by the Asian Business Aviation Association (AsBAA). He received his award at the association’s Icons of Aviation charity gala on 10 November in Hong Kong.

The award, one of the few in the world that acknowledge the contributions of individuals in the aviation industry, recognises Caspar’s nearly 30 years of commitment to architecture and specifically to his work in aviation architecture in the past two decades.

Caspar was born in Hannover, Germany, and graduated as an architect from University of Stuttgart. His wife Luisa Makariadi also works in Surbana Jurong, and is a senior aviation consultant like himself. They are part of the Surbana Jurong Aviation team working to secure the hottest project in aviation right now – to design Changi Airport’s Terminal 5.
