Congratulations to Raphael Amajuoyi for winning the CIBSE Ken Dale Travel Bursary Awards

We are pleased to announce that Raphael Amajuoyi has been awarded the CIBSE Ken Dale Travel Bursary Award.

Our winner, Raphael Amajuoyi, a Consultant in London, is conducting research to explore the comfort levels experienced by different genders within the modern-day office. Thanks to all those who took part in the survey in July which formed part of the application. The survey was developed specifically to target commercial office occupants in London, San Francisco, Rio de Janeiro, and Doha – to see whether the bias of a ‘man’s world’ transcends into the way that our offices are designed.

The Ken Dale Travel Bursary offers young building services engineers the opportunity to experience technical, economic, environmental, social and political conditions in another country and to examine how these factors impact the practice of building services engineering.

The Ken Dale Travel Bursary has been established by CIBSE to commemorate Ken Dale’s contribution to the Institution and the building services profession. The Ken Dale Travel Bursary makes awards available of between £1,500 and £4,000 to CIBSE members in the developmental stage of their career who wish to spend three to four weeks outside their own country researching aspects connected to their field of work and which will benefit CIBSE, their employer, their clients and the profession. CIBSE is especially keen to encourage applicants to take up the award for research that articulates with CIBSE’s concern for the environment.
