John Hunt, formerly of Axima Building Services, and Stuart Lyon of MITIE Engineering Services (Scotland) have received HVCA outstanding-service awards.

HVCA president Gareth Vaughan, made the presentations and reminded his audience that these awards recognise people whose contribution to the activities of the association had been positive and significant — but who had not necessarily received the recognition they deserved.

John Hunt was chairman of the technical committee for over 20 years and its chairman from 1998 to 2003. He made an enormous contribution to the library of specifications and good-practice guides that have helped to establish HVCA as the key standards setter across building-services engineering.

Gareth Vaughan also referred to John Hunt’s membership of council for five years from 1996, which ‘allowed him to bring his natural wisdom and long industry experience to bear on the wider issues of the day’. The president recalled that, had things worked out differently, Stuart Lyon would have served as president in 2007/7 — ‘and was therefore a serious contender for the title of “the best president the association never had”.’ ‘As chairman of the HVCA in Scotland, of the education committee and the HVACR national training forum — and as a member of council for over a decade — he demonstrated a deep and genuine commitment to quality, competence and professionalism.’
