Renewables award for young Highland Council engineer
Inverness-based Highland Council Engineer, Jackie Sayer has won the Judges Award at the prestigious Scottish Renewables Young Professionals Award ceremony. The inaugural awards were recently held on Thursday 28 May in the Glasgow Science Centre.
Jackie was presented the Judges Award sponsored by EDF Energy Renewables for her keystone work in understanding the requirements of the Scottish Housing Quality Standards and developing a ‘road map’ to compliance.

It is a very prestigious award and great achievement. Congratulations to Jackie on this excellent accolade.”
