Trend Chris Monson

Trend Control Systems is delighted to announce that its strategic marketing manager, Chris Monson, has been awarded Honorary Membership of BSRIA for his extraordinary contribution to the association and the independent promotion of best practice in the building services industry. It is only the eighth time that this prestigious accolade has been given during BSRIA’s 58-year history.

A highly respected figure in the building controls industry, Chris is a vociferous proponent of best practice and has used his considerable technical knowledge to promote advanced ways of managing energy use within the built environment. During his extensive career at Trend he has helped to cement the company’s position as the leading provider of Building Energy Management Systems (BEMS).

His relationship with BSRIA goes back over 25 years. After being instrumental in the development of its BEMS Centre, he joined the Association’s Council in 1989 and went on to sit on the organisation’s Research Panel. His activities were soon noted and he was invited on to the Board, where he served uninterrupted between 1994-2010. In 1999 Chris took on the role of chairman, where he continued to serve with distinction.

Anne King, marketing director at BSRIA, said, “I have had the great pleasure of knowing Chris for many years and not only has he always been a great contributor and supporter of BSRIA’s activities, he is also a fantastic person to work with. It’s a view shared by all his colleagues here and the fact that he is only the eighth person to have been awarded an Honorary Membership by the BSRIA Council is testament to the high regard in which he is held.”

As one of the world’s foremost testing, research, consultancy and compliance organisations, BSRIA provides specialist services in construction and building services. It has built an enviable reputation for its independent approach and authoritative manner, and offers a wide range of services to help companies improve the design, build and operation of buildings.

Chris has also been instrumental in forging an excellent relationship between Trend and BSRIA, one that has culminated in the former’s sponsorship of both the BSRIA Red Building in Bracknell and the BSRIA Briefing for several years.

Arman Saeidnia, Trend’s managing director, commented, “This is an amazing achievement for Chris and I speak on behalf of all his colleagues here in congratulating him. He is a true ambassador for the industry and is always striving to find new ways to enhance the vital role of building controls. His knowledge and experience are greatly valued at Trend and I’m delighted that he has received wider recognition through Honorary Membership of BSRIA.”
