CIBSE Building Simulation Awards 2020
CIBSE Building Simulation Group Awards
The CIBSE Building Simulation Group (BSG) is proud to announce their two awards for this year, CIBSE Building Simulation Awards 2020 and CIBSE Building Simulation Young Modeller 2020 with winning prizes of £1,000 and £500 respectively up for grabs.
The BSG are hosting the awards during the annual Build2Perform event, now online. The main event will showcase all of the shortlisted entries by Artelia, Atelier Ten, chapmanbdsp, Cundall, Hilson Moran and WSP, demonstrating excellent technical application of building performance modelling principles. A judging panel will assess the presentations, from which an overall winner will be announced along with the winner of the showcase event for future modelling talent.
The CIBSE Building Simulation Awards 2020 focus on the use of building simulation in projects, and aims to encourage innovation in building simulation techniques. Entries should provide information on a project that has a simulation or modelling aspect, giving details about why simulation and modelling were important. All entries will be reviewed by a panel of experts, who will select six entrants to present their work on an online event as part of the Build2Perform programme in November, where they will be judged and the winner announced.
The CIBSE Building Simulation Young Modeller 2020 Awards is a new category, where we recognise the outstanding contributions of young engineers, apprentices and sustainability consultants working with building simulation and encompassing any type of simulation for the built environment. Nominees who hold a position in academia, industry, or public sector and are within 3 years of completion of their highest degree or 5 years of professional experience in the field as well as undergraduates, apprentices or those graduating in 2020-2021 are welcome to apply. They should submit samples of their work, their CV and a referee’s testimonial. All entries will be peer-reviewed by a panel of experts, and then the winner will be announced at the online event in November 2020.
