After many years of having a traditional annual dinner, CIBSE Yorkshire decided to give the region something which has been missing for too long; an Awards to give recognition to the individuals, companies and the projects which the building services industry produces.
The theme of the night was pride and passion; yes, we were interested in excellence, but as much in those who inspire and enthuse others with their interest in building services.
Over 300 people joined us to celebrate what is good about building services in Yorkshire. We created social impact by skills and fund raising for Class of Your Own and The Real Junk Food Project as well as increasing awareness of the work by both organisations.
Just as importantly we created a platform for individuals and organisations to highlight their achievements; an opportunity to congratulate their teams, show the wider community what they can do and get together to share conversation.
We most also thank (again) everyone who volunteered to help make the event real - the roll of honour is after the winners, shortlisted entries and sponsors with a link to the Storify for the evening and Alison's #BuildParabongo crowd funding appeal.
