BSRIA’s outgoing chief executive Andrew Eastwell has become only the ninth honorary member of BSRIA in the organisation’s 58-year history. The award recognises an extraordinary contribution to the association and the promotion of best practice in the building-services industry.

He joined BSRIA as a junior engineer in 1975. His development and subsequent management of the BEMS (Building Energy Management Systems) Centre led to big changes in the industry.

He became CEO in 1998, since when BSRIA’s turnover has grown to £11.8 million. There are 179 staff, an office in Beijing and a new office being opened in Chicago.

The presentation was made by Chris Monson, a former BSRIA chairman and most recent honorary member. He said, ‘Your enthusiasm for making the industry better, your vision as to how BSRIA can help deliver this and your entrepreneurial acumen to put the pieces together to achieve it have made the association what it is today. We are all extremely grateful for the accomplishments that have been made on your watch.’

Andrew Eastwell said, ‘Honorary membership of BSRIA is a rare privilege that is special because it is from people for whom I have the utmost respect in their support of all that BSRIA tries hard to achieve.’
