B&ES past president Brian Townsend (right in photo) has become only the eighth person in the 111-year history of the association (Building & Engineering Services Association) to be awarded its distinguished service award. The association’s president Jim Marner (left) explained that the award is conferred upon ‘those who have rendered extra-special service to the association and its activities, adding that the roll-call of previous recipients represents ‘a B&ES hall of fame’.

Brian Townsend was elected to the association’s council in 1992 and served continuously until earlier this year. He has also served as a trustee of the association for nearly 20 years and was president during the centenary year in 2004.

Jim Marner says, ‘Of the many committed individuals I have met during my involvement with B&ES, I can safely claim that none has demonstrated more dedication than Brian to the interests of the association and the sector, nor provided more leadership and counsel.’
