City and Guilds Richard McCarthy

On hearing of his award, Richard said: ‘Receiving such a prestigious award is a real honour, especially when it is for something that I passionately believe in. My aim has always been to make the public and in particular, the construction industry, aware of both the environmental and financial benefits of energy conservation. I will continue this journey and hopefully this award will give me an opportunity to pass on the message to a much wider audience.’

Richard’s idea for these courses followed one of his many voluntary trips to orphanages in some of Europe’s most disadvantaged countries.
