A graduate from London South Bank University (LSBU)'s School of The Built Environment and Architecture has been named Graduate of the Year by the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE).

Ryan Rodrigues, now working for HurleyPalmerFlatt, faced off against eight other graduate hopefuls on the shortlist to win the award, which seeks to reward the innovative thinking, hard work and skill that is necessary to secure a bright future for the built environment sector.

To win the award, shortlisted graduates had to give a four minute presentation on the theme of collaboration, and how it can be used to improve buildings and building performance.

The CIBSE awards reflect the vitally important role that young engineers - and their employers - have to play in futureproofing the built environment and supporting the UK economy. Nick Mead, President of CIBSE, said: “We are used to seeing the absolute cream of the UK’s engineering talent at these awards, but the standard was particularly high this year and the bar was raised yet again.”

In addition to being named Graduate of the Year, Ryan Rodrigues also wins a trip to Orlando, Florida, to attend the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE)’s Winter Conference as a guest of honour.
