Ant Wilson, director, Sustainability & Advanced Design, Building Engineering at AECOM and a long-standing BSRIA council member, has been awarded an MBE in the Queen’s New Year’s Honours’ List.

He is recognised as one of the UK’s most influential building service engineers and works tirelessly in the promotion and advancement of engineering and sustainability. This includes becoming a STEMNET Ambassador (2002 – present) which sees him undertaking regular presentations in schools to promote STEM subjects and in particular engineering as a viable long term career option. He aims to change the perception of built environment engineering from the traditional construction industry and aligning it to the reduction of energy consumption and carbon usage.

Ant has also been a member of the BSRIA governance council since 2001, providing industry insight that allows the organisation to take a leading position in the development and implementation of best practice for the industry, with a focus on skills development, conservation of fuel and power in buildings, low carbon/energy design, sustainable buildings and developments, renewable energy systems and façade engineering. He is chairman of the BSRIA Energy & Sustainability Network.

In addition to contributing to BSRIA and his work with STEMNET, Ant has worked with similar organisations within the engineering industry, receiving an unprecedented level of industry recognition for his contribution and these include: Fellowships of both the Royal Academy of Engineering and the Chartered Institute of Building Service Engineers (CIBSE). He was the first winner of ACE Engineering Ambassadors award in 2008 and awarded a CIBSE silver medal in 2007 for his contribution. In 2010 he was awarded the Institute of Mechanical Engineers award for promotion of construction and building services.

BSRIA chief executive Julia Evans said: “Ant has been a delightful contributor and loyal servant to industry over the years. And, indeed, he is a shining example for young engineers embarking on their career and life journeys.”

She added: “On behalf of BSRIA, I would like to warmly congratulate Ant for his many and varied contributions to the industry.”
