CIBSE/ASHRAE Graduate of the year
CIBSE and ASHRAE have named 22-year-old Lee Tabis Graduate of the Year for 2012. He is a trainee design engineer with engineering, IT and facilities-services business NG Bailey and received his award from CIBSE president David Fisk at an event sponsored by Lochinvar and Ruskin Air Management. His prize is a trip to the ASHRAE winter meeting in Dallas, Texas, in January 2013. He will be a VIP guest of ASHRAE and CIBSE’s ambassador for young engineers.
He is a graduate of Leeds College of Building and was selected from a shortlist of seven outstanding young engineers.
Each finalist was challenged to give a presentation to an audience of over 140 people and a judging panel that included the presidents of CIBSE and ASHRAE, CIBSE’s US counterpart. The topic was ‘How will I help to engineer better communities’, and each finalist had five minutes to make their presentation.
