BSRIA has announced that Chris Monson of Trend has been awarded Honorary Membership of BSRIA.
In a statement the association said: ” This is only the 8th time this honour has been awarded in the 58 year history of the Association and the award is made to recognise an extraordinary contribution to the Association and the independent promotion of best practice in the building services industry.
A leading figure in the building controls industry, Chris has always been a supporter of best practice, values he shares with BSRIA. After helping to develop and run the BEMS Centre at BSRIA, he joined Council in 1989, and then the BSRIA Research Panel.
He was quickly recruited to the Board and served uninterrupted from 1994 till 2010; in 1999 Chris took on the role of Chairman and served the Association with distinction.
Chris has been instrumental in developing the relationship between Trend and BSRIA, a relationship which has seen Trend being a sponsor of the “Red Building” offices of BSRIA in Bracknell and the lead sponsor at the BSRIA Briefing for several years.”
