CIBSE Building Performance Awards – Finalists

Hurley Palmer Flatt are delighted to announce we have been shortlisted as a finalist at the 12th Annual CIBSE Building and Performance Awards. Our Graduate and Training Engineering Solutions (GATES) scheme has been shortlisted in the Learning and Development Category, which recognises the impact our initiative has had on the understanding of building performance within our organisation and the sector. The Building and Performance Awards celebrates the people, products and projects that demonstrate excellence in the built environment and we are proud to have been recognised for our efforts.

Since 2014, the Hurley Palmer Flatt Group have set out to provide a fully immersive experience, that aims to provide a path for learning and development for graduates with mentorship from some of the best in the industry. The scheme embodies our mission of adding value beyond just engineering, helping to guide graduates to be excellent at what they do. The scheme is a platform that invests in the future leaders of our industry, as echoed by Group Chairman and CEO, Paul Flatt, in our 50th Anniversary podcast. Paul describes GATES as “providing the right structure and the path to allow graduates to come in and become a chartered engineer. They bring new skills and a freshness to the business”, something that can only ever help the Group to stay current, by investing in the next generation.

2018 has seen another great year for GATES, with our intake reaching 20 graduates since its creation in 2014 and our first two Engineers, Daryl Taylor and James Topping, completing their journey. The awards calendar has also been a highlight for our initiative, with shortlisting’s for the CN Talent Awards, ACE Consultancy and Engineering Awards, Graduate of the Year and winning the Investment and Training category at the CSA Awards.

The Hurley Palmer Flatt Group look forward to celebrating the 5th Year of our GATES Scheme in 2019, with the Learning and Development award announcement a highlight in our calendar. The prestigious Grosvenor House Hotel in London will play host to the CIBSE Building Performance Awards 2019, with winners announced on Tuesday the 12th of February 2019.
