Susie wins a CIBSE medal

I was delighted to receive a CIBSE bronze medal during the proceedings at the Technical Symposium in Glasgow last month.

I was put forward for the medal by Farah Naz last year (thanks Farah!) which was extremely flattering. Special thanks also to Claire Das Bhaumik, Thomas Lefevre, Ben Abel and Clara Bagenal George for seconding my nomination.

The nomination was for a range of contributions I have made to CIBSE and industry over the last 20 years including; being a contributing author for CIBSE TM59 and TM54 (2022); judging the CIBSE Building Performance Awards; acting as peer reviewer for the technical symposium;  co-authoring a CIBSE Carter Bronze medal-winning research paper; writing articles for the CIBSE journal and contributing on various fronts to LETI.

I chose to receive the medal at the technical symposium as it’s my favourite CIBSE event of the year and I knew there would be lots of good people there to celebrate with. Ben Abel kindly introduced me and explained why I was awarded the medal at the evening reception, and it was presented by the CIBSE president Kevin Mitchell.  I was told there wasn’t time for me to make a speech, but I did manage to thank Claire for encouraging, supporting and endorsing all the time I spend on voluntary activities, I said how good it felt to be appreciated and advocated for people to nominate others for future medals.

With this in mind here is the link for how to make nominations for CIBSE medals. Nominations have closed for 2023, so start thinking about who should get a medal in 2024. I will be making nominations.

There was even a write-up in the CIBSE Journal:

Day one ended with a civic reception at Glasgow City Chambers, where Inkling’s Susie Diamond was awarded a CIBSE Bronze medal for her volunteering work, including her contribution to TM59: Overheating risk calculation, which has been incorporated in Building Regulations.

I’d like to reiterate that it is a real honour to be recognised and appreciated in this way. I love giving back to the industry that employs me – I believe we all need to be generous with our knowledge and experience so that we all improve and do better for the buildings we deliver, the people that use them, and the planet. Thank you to everyone who has helped me along the way and to everyone else who is pushing our industry forward. CIBSE rely heavily on volunteer engagement, and achieve so much more as a result of it; it’s great that they recognise and value those that give their time and knowledge.
