Ms Luckhurst was selected from a shortlist of seven finalists and AECOM came out on top after seven firms reached the final stage of the CIBSE Young Engineers’ Awards.

The ceremony was held at the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) in London on 10 October, at which The Graduate Award finalists each had five minutes to make a presentation in the IMechE lecture hall. The topic was ‘How can building services professionals find the right balance between the needs of the global environment, occupant health, wellbeing and productivity, and best value?’

The evening also saw the presentation of the IMechE’s special achievement award to Michael Ralph, chief engineer and senior policy/strategy lead at NHS Improvements. The Geoffrey Engert Award for Heating, Ventilation and Air-Conditioning went to Elliot Brown of Mott MacDonald and Owen Sayers of Atkins.

CIBSE president, Lynne Jack, said: “With these Young Engineers Awards we recognise and showcase the exceptional engineering talent we have in the industry.

“Equally importantly, the awards shine a spotlight on those employers whose progressive strategies for recruiting, nurturing and empowering young people have provided a suitable environment for our young engineers to flourish. Without companies willing to champion and support those new to our industry, we cannot hope to achieve our targets.”
