Gold Medal - Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers

Professor Max Fordham OBE, senior partner of Max Fordham & Partners, has been awarded a gold medal by the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers

'He has earned his outstanding reputation by both the quality of work that he and his partners have attracted to his practice and his enthusiastic involvement in education, architecture and many other fringe activities...

'He is, I believe, a role model, someone who has shown that there is more to building services than following the mechanical procedures found in handbooks. Someone who is willing to take initiative and lead in building design teams. Someone who is confident to articulate a well thought out and holistic view.'

Extract from the Judges' Citation

Professor Max Fordham and Bart Stevens were awarded the Carter Bronze Medal for their paper 'Interstitial Condensation in Building Structures: Dynamic Model For Predicting The Amount of Condensation.'

Max Fordham studied Natural Sciences at Cambridge University. After working at Ove Arup and Partners he applied some of his experience to his own practice which he set up in 1966. The practice has subsequently become known for its innovative approach to design and has won numerous awards.
