B&ES announces Outstanding Service Award winner

Jim Murray, a member of the Ductwork Group of the Building & EngineeringServices Association (B&ES), has become the latest recipient of its Outstanding Service Award.

In making the presentation to Mr Murray, president Andy Sneyd said that the award had been conceived to recognise the association’s “unsung heroes” – those who had never sought high office, but whose contribution had nevertheless been “both valuable and sustained over many years”.

“When friends and colleagues of today’s recipient were asked to describe him, the words ‘thorough knowledge’, ‘huge expertise’ and ‘boundless enthusiasm’ were followed by ‘a ductwork man through and through’ – and even ‘Mr Ductwork’,” Mr Sneyd said.

A long-serving member and former chairman of the Ductwork Group’s technical committee, Mr Murray played a role in the process of review, re-drafting and refreshment that resulted in the publication of a new edition of the B&ES’s world-renowned Specification for Sheet Metal Ductwork (DW144).
