BESA Conference turns theory to practice

BESA, BESA Conference

This year’s BESA National Conference will take place at the Millennium Gloucester Hotel, London on November 21st. Taking its overall theme as ‘Competence, compliance and climate change – turning theory into practice’, the Conference will consider how the building engineering industry can meet many of the technical challenges it is now facing.

These include turning the government’s pledge to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050 into practical actions; delivering the building safety solutions highlighted by the Hackitt Review; complying with ever tightening refrigerant legislation; and achieving higher standards in pipework, ventilation and off-site manufacturing.

The wider theme of health and well-being in buildings will also be central to the Conference with technical experts considering the impact of rising pollution, overheating and poor humidity control on the quality of life of building occupants.

The net zero carbon challenge will be a cornerstone of the one-day event as BESA believes building engineering firms will be central to the £1trn programme to fully decarbonise the UK economy by 2050.

Much of BESA’s specialist technical guidance will underpin the content of the Conference sessions along with innovations like the Association’s new pipework selection app; its newly launched Ventilation Hygiene Elite scheme; and updates to its heat interface unit (HIU) test standard.

“While this will be primarily a technical conference, it will position the work of BESA members and the sector as a whole in the context of the big political, social and economic changes the country is experiencing,” said BESA chief executive David Frise.

Among the targeted technical sessions analysing innovations, processes and technologies will be an expert panel considering the implications of the Hackitt Review for professional competence and compliance chaired by BESA chief executive David Frise.
