The Building Engineering Services Association (BESA) is launching an award to mark the centenary of the Women’s Engineering Society (WES).
BESA believes engineering professions in general – and building engineering in particular – will not be able to meet future business goals without a far more gender diverse workforce.
Industrial refrigeration apprentice Tom Woolston of Star Refrigeration was named ACR Trainee of the Year 2018 at the annual awards ceremony at The Belfry in Sutton Coldfield.
Oliver Drury of JD Cooling was runner-up and Tom Fearon of Source BioScience highly commended.

They were: Evan Minns of JD Cooling, Alex Wilson (Dunbia), Ben Wilson (Knight Engineers), Grant Leniewski (Coolbreeze), Ben Hornby (Acme Facilities Group), Daniel Warren (James Mercer Group) and Stephen Day (Culm Cooling).
