CIBSE and ASHRAE name Graduate and Employer of the Year 2012

The Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) and the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) have named Lee Tabis the Graduate of the Year 2012 and the Employer of the Year award went to JDP.

Mr Tabis, a 22 year-old trainee design engineer with engineering, IT and facilities services business NG Bailey, received his award from CIBSE President David Fisk during the CIBSE Young Engineers’ Awards.  

Another accolade at the event was the award of Employer of the Year which went to building services engineering consultancy JDP for its outstanding record of investment in the education of young engineers and its advanced apprenticeship programme.

Mr Tabis, who is a graduate of Leeds College of Building, was selected from a shortlist of seven young engineers. Each finalist was challenged to give a presentation to an audience of over 140 and a distinguished judging panel that included the presidents of CIBSE and ASHRAE and last year’s Graduate of the Year Angela Malynn.

CIBSE chief executive Stephen Matthews said: “Winning the CIBSE ASHRAE Graduate of the Year Award is a significant achievement and Lee has done extremely well in what was a very high standard of competition this year. As an industry we need to encourage new talent into the building services engineering profession and recognise and support that talent, and this Award is part of this.”
