CIBSE symposium to focus on air quality

CIBSE's Technical Symposium speakers will address the issue of air quality at the event at the end of April

CIBSE’s 2019 Technical Symposium will tackle the topic of air quality and its impact on health when delegates meet in Sheffield on the 25 and 26 of April.

The session stream, titled The realities of building IAQ (Indoor Air Quality), will look at new

research and case studies related to this area of growing concern. Planned presentations include a review of the current state of IAQ science and instrumenting technologies; how plants can act as a building service by improving indoor air quality and reducing energy consumption; a case-study showing an exemplar approach to IAQ in a new office fit-out; and a study of the link between indoor environment and workplace productivity.

The overall theme for this year’s Symposium is Transforming Built Environments – driving change with engineering will focus on the advances in materials, technologies and techniques which lead to and motivate positive change. Attendees will gain access to over 70 presentations, case studies and research papers across the two-day event.

As well as covering IAQ the planned core session streams will cover the wide range of research and development being undertaken across the built environment industry. These include: informing future performance assessment; commissioning and operation; sourcing energy with low environmental impact; delivering and assessing performance in building lighting; modelling and simulation; developing sustainable buildings and systems; heat networks; and passive design.

The Technical Symposium is a diverse and inclusive event which provides an opportunity for students, building services professionals and academics to examine and share research,

developments and applications that will drive change in the built environment.
