Young engineers and employers recognised

24 October 2017

Winners of the 2017 Graduate of the Year and Employer of the Year awards have been announced by the Chartered Institute of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE).

One of eight finalists, Raphael Amajuoyi won the Graduate of the Year prize for the quality of his five-minute presentation to the judges.

Each finalist was asked to provide their thoughts on the question: Is engineering an art and should building services professionals be more creative in the way they approach projects?

Mr Amajuoyi graduated from Loughborough University and works as a consultant for the Hurley Palmer Flatt energy and sustainable development team.

As the winning finalist, he wins a trip to the ASHRAE winter conference in Chicago, US.

Ana Recio of Arup, who graduated from the University of the West of England, and Kiyomi Honjigawa, of Buro Happold and a graduate from Heriot-Watt University, were the runners up.

They received cash prizes of £600 and £300 respectively, courtesy of the Rumford Club.

The remaining finalists all received cash prizes of £100 from the Manly Charitable Trust.

CIBSE president Peter Wong said: "Celebrating the work of engineers is one of the most important things our institution does.

"By rewarding the talent and the companies that nurture that talent the awards are helping to set up a bright future where we are ahead of the curve."

The Employer of the Year award was won by InTandem Systems, following its success in winning the small company category.

Elementa won the medium company section and Norman Disney Young was the winner of the large company category.
