Francesca Berriman was made an MBE in Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s Birthday Honours, for services to the Architectural Technology profession.
The MBE rewards a service which is outstanding in its field and has delivered a sustained and real impact— this recognition to Francesca reflects the true ethos of the award in addition to her significant contribution to not only the Institute, the discipline of Architectural Technology but also to the built environment. Francesca is, and continues to be, an inspiring role model within the community.
It was a very proud moment for the Institute and recognises the fantastic work and commitment that Francesca has, and will continue, to give to the discipline, Institute and industry. This is a true recognition of the sterling work that Francesca and the team at CIAT, both members and staff, have given and this has been rightly acknowledged by her peers, of which she is a distinct figurehead. A fitting tribute in this Diamond Jubilee year.
