CIBSE Graduate of the year announced
Michael Gardner is the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) Graduate of the Year 2010.
Mr Gardner is a graduate of Coventry University and is now working for Pick Everard. He beat five other candidates to win a place at the ASHRAE Winter meeting in Las Vegas.
Each of the six finalists was asked to make a five minute presentation on the theme: 'What tools does the modern building services engineer need to help society create a sustainable world?'
This is the 15th year the award, which is sponsored by Baxi Commercial, has been presented. It is organised by the CIBSE/ASHRAE Group and is designed to champion the achievement and potential of young building services engineers.
Paul Hardy, managing director of Baxi Commercial Division, said: 'We believe that recognising the achievements of our young engineers is vital in securing a healthy future for the industry.
'Awards like these offer encouragement for those already studying for a career in engineering and building construction as well as providing inspiration for other talented young people to seek a profession in the industry.'
