Performance, Inspiration and Aspiration are the keywords behind the 2016 Building Performance Conference and Exhibition, organised by the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) as it officially launches this year’s programme.
Following on from CIBSE President John Field’s promise to inspire engineers to ‘talk the talk’ and fight for their place at the heart of modern life, this Conference will bring together over 40 expert speakers to showcase the latest thought on building performance and help engineers deliver and maintain high performing buildings.
The Conference, due to be held on 17 and 18 November at the QEII Centre in Westminster, is a chance for engaged industry professionals from the built environment sector to meet, learn and debate the critical issues facing the industry, from health and wellbeing issues to maintenance and operational performance. It is already proving to be a popular event, having attracted the highest number of pre-registrations to date.
A series of leading speakers will tackle these issues, offering employable solutions in their addresses; including Outlook for Building Performance, Digital Engineering & Building Services, Achieving Performance In Use, Air Quality: Impact on Health & Wellbeing. Collaboration for Better Performance, Refurb + Retrofit, and Innovation in Buildings.
John Field, President of CIBSE and Chair of day two, said: “Engineers are at the centre of everyday life, we make the modern world work in obvious and not-so-obvious ways, and it’s in our power to help make the world a better place in many areas, from tackling climate change to improving how people live.
“The CIBSE Conference is an ideal time to get together and be inspired by what we have achieved, and what we can achieve in the future. Using what we learn in these sessions, we can take big ideas to business, the media and politicians and help shape the future of the UK, and make it a beacon for excellence in building performance for years to come.”
In the Conference programme, sessions include: ‘Are you ready for a digital future?’, ‘Build to Perform: Realising the commercial drivers and opportunities in high performing buildings, what the world could look like if all buildings achieved best engineering outcomes, Facilitating collaboration for optimum performance from teams and buildings, and High rise buildings on the up: What do the building services look like?
