Boosting building performance through co-operation at CIBSE Conference
Posted: 13 August 2015
‘Working Together for Resilient, Efficient and Healthy Buildings’ is the theme for this year’s Building Performance Conference, as the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers releases the full programme of events for the first time today.
The Conference, due to be held on 3 and 4 November at the QEII Centre in Westminster, is a chance for key decision makers from the Building Services and built environment sectors to meet, learn and debate the critical issues facing the industry, from building security issues to maintenance and operational performance. It is already proving to be a record-breaking event, having attracted the highest number of pre-registrations to date.
Following on from CIBSE President Nick Mead’s call for closer working between the many building services disciplines, this year’s conference will be centred on the question of how collaboration can more effectively deliver better building performance.
A series of leading speakers will tackle these issues in their addresses; including security of buildings and building information, the relationship between lighting and comfort and health in buildings, the use of BIM in promoting building performance and adapting the UK building stock to climate change.
Nick Mead, President of CIBSE, said “The Conference is a unique opportunity for the best and brightest in every field related to Building Services Engineering to get together and discuss what the future holds for our industry, as well as to involve manufacturers at our exhibition.
“It is essential for all those who work in the built environment sector to focus on delivering buildings and assets that perform as clients expect them to, enabling building users to be more productive, effective and profitable. We need to work together across the supply chain and throughout the whole life of a building to deliver better value. This year’s Conference will serve as a model for how the industry can come together, share ideas and work towards a unified goal in future.”
In the Conference programme, sessions include: Security, Using BIM in Building Operations, Lighting, Wellbeing and Comfort in Buildings, Legislation and Building Performance, Reliability Centred Maintenance, Adapting the UK Building Stock to a Changing Climate, Building Performance Evaluation and Innovation and Collaboration in Building Performance. These sessions will be spread out over the two days of the Conference, allowing time for networking and refreshments.
The Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers is hosting the Building Performance Conference and Exhibition at the prestigious QEII Conference Centre in Westminster on 3-4 November 2015. Attendees will be able to meet and network with over 300 like-minded professionals, clients and suppliers from around the world.
