He will be presented with a £500 cheque and a certificate at the President’s Awards Dinner on 13 October. A trophy will also be awarded to Tanner’s course tutor, Kika Yiakoumetti, representing LSBU, in acknowledgement of its achievement. Kate Hunter, from the University of Cambridge, and Brogan Watkins, from the University of Nottingham, were runners-up and will each receive £100.

The award, sponsored by Hays Building Services, is awarded to those in their final year of a building services course accredited by CIBSE, and recognises their academic achievements.
