CIBSE announces shortlist for 2016 Building Performance Awards
Published:  05 January, 2016

The shortlist for the 13 categories of the 2016 Building Performance Awards has been announced. It is based on the best set of entries and evidence of measured performance to date. Hywel Davies, technical director of the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers, which organises he awards, explains, ‘Our awards are unique because they judge how a building performs, not just its design, and we were struck this year by the varied approaches taken, which made judging challenging and interesting.

In response to the popularity of the building categories in the last awards, four new categories have been introduced. They are for commercial/industrial, retail, leisure, public-use and residential buildings.

Hywel Davies comments, ‘By opening up thee new categories, we are responding to a growing recognition of building performance and building-performance innovation in different sectors. It’s a very positive sign that performance is being taken seriously across a whole range of industries, and it give the judging panel a great challenge trying to pick a winner.

The Building Performance Awards will be presented at an event in London on 24 February 2016. You can see the shortlist and book for the event on CIBSE’s web site.
