Award for CIAT

CIAT was honoured to receive the Worshipful Company of Chartered Architects Award for service to the Architects’ Benevolent Society (ABS) at the WCCA’s Election Court Dinner on 10 July held in Skinners’ Hall, London. The Award takes the shape of a hand painted plate, which this year was designed by George Ferguson CBE PPRIBA HonMCIAT.

I was there last night to accept the Award on behalf of the Institute, and I have reproduced my speech below:

With ABS representatives and Marjorie Smith MCIAT

Sing-a-longa Colin!

“As President of CIAT, I am honoured to receive this award which is something very special to us indeed. Special, as it further demonstrates the supportive and working relationship between the Institute and ABS which we have enjoyed over many decades. The ABS has helped many of our members, Architectural Technology professionals, including their families, who have not been as fortunate as us in their working or personal life. I’d like to take the opportunity to remember the late John Hadland MCIAT who was our ABS representative for many years and to thank Marjorie Smith MCIAT as our dedicated representative for ABS and is also a respected and loyal trustee for the Society. CIAT look forward to supporting and working with ABS for many more years to come.”
