His impressive achievements continue beyond his dedication to CIBSE and to the industry as a whole where he is a lead judge for IWFM, the Building Controls Industry Association and Green Sky Thinking Week. David serves as deputy chair of BIM4FM and chair of the Rumford Club.

David also understands the importance of helping the next generation. During his time in the industry, he has mentored numerous CEng, IEng and EngTech candidates. Presented at STEM events at a secondary school and is a guest lecturer at UCL.

Like those David has supported and many others that know him, I look at David as a mentor and exemplar of what a professional building services engineer should be. I’m even prouder to call him a friend and in my view he is deserving of the CIBSE Silver Medal for his years of continued dedication to CIBSE and the industry.

Gary Jones CEng FCIBSE

Gary Jones CEng FCIBSE’s citation was read by Peter Prentice. Gary was CIBSE Southern Region Chair twice. He was instrumental in establishing the YEN Southern Region group in 2014. Gary is actively involved in the CIBSE Education and Learning Group and is currently Chair of Constructing Excellence Hampshire.

I thought long and hard about the terminology I would use in this citation however Gary is a bit of “legend” within the CIBSE Southern Region. He has actively led and supported the activities of CIBSE in the region for nearly 3 decades.

Gary’s commitment is unsurpassed within the region and he has been, and remains, an inspiration not only to aspiring engineers but also some of us that are a little longer in the tooth.

Gary has served two terms of office as Southern Region Chair initially in 2002-2004 and then again in 2012-2014 and remains a highly active committee member.

Gary significantly contributed to the INTEREG programme in 1997-1999, where he presented at Rouen University “Engineering Education in UK” and routes to CIBSE Membership and also the Durabuild programmes in 2004 with Universities of Brighton and Rouen.

Gary has a true passion for inspiring and supporting the next generation of engineers and this can be seen through his tireless efforts with the YEN southern region group. Gary was instrumental in establishing the YEN group in 2014 and remains highly actively supporting and guiding Liv Stokes, one of our up and coming southern region stars.

Gary is technically astute and interested in all things building services, over the years he has provided a number of technical presentations at the southern region technical meetings including;

  • Use of bore hole water for cooling within high efficiency AHU linked to displacement ventilation system – cooling without a refrigeration cycle
  • chilled ceilings within a banking dealing area plus energy efficiency issues including free cooling chiller, run around coils and lighting control.
  • Bio-mass and bio-oil heating: comparative case studies
  • A number of refurbishment case studies and student critique session

Gary is also actively involved in the CIBSE Education and Learning Group and is currently the Chair of Constructing Excellence Hampshire until the end of 2022 as part of the restart group post Covid.

It is therefore truly my honour to bare witness to the recognition and celebration of an inspirational engineer who inspires others and embodies the virtues and values of CIBSE.

Martin Liddament FCIBSE’s citation was read by Chris Iddon. Martin joined the Air Infiltration and Ventilation Centre or AIVC in 1980, becoming its head in 1986. He has contributed to several of CIBSE’s publications including Guide A, B and Applications Manual 10. He began publishing the International Journal of Ventilation in 2001, editing it for 14 years.

In 1980 Martin joined the Air Infiltration and Ventilation Centre or AIVC, and became its head in 1986. The AIVC operated an international library of technical information on ventilation and produced technical reports, such as the GU03 Guide to Ventilation. Martin has himself described his time with the AIVC as an opportunity to understand the diverse range of international ventilation needs, especially in relation to climate conditions, and building construction techniques. Knowledge that he has shared through his numerous contributions to many of the CIBSE’s key documents, such as Guides A and B, and Applications Manual 10. His name also appears on many of the supporting references.

In 2001 Martin left the AIVC and founded VEETECH Limited where he began publishing the International Journal of Ventilation which he edited for 14 years. It remains the only peer-reviewed journal dedicated to ventilation issues and has subscriptions in over 30 countries.

I came to know Martin in around 2013 when I joined the Natural Ventilation special interest group, which he chaired. He would impart his extensive knowledge acquired over, what is now, 45 years in the field for which I, and I have no doubt that there are many other like me, am very grateful.

Martin retired in 2017 to long walks and leisurely glasses of wine, but has continued to be an active member of the natural ventilation group who supported this nomination. I’m sure you will all agree with me that this Silver Medal is a just reward for a career of influence and excellence.
