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.”
