CIBSE’s second building-performance conference and exhibition

Following the success of its first conference and exhibition on building performance, CIBSE is organising a second event on 3 and 4 November 2015 in London. The theme will be working together for resilient, efficient and healthy buildings. The event 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 to maintenance and operational performance. Pre-registrations are reported to be at a very high level.

CIBSE president Nick Mead says, ‘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.’

Sessions 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.

The venue will again be the QEII Conference Centre.
