CIBSE Building Performance Award winners 2024

The Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) has announced the winners of the 2024 Building Performance Awards which celebrate excellence in the built environment.

The Awards took place on 29 February at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge, bringing together industry leaders, innovators, and visionaries, honouring those who have made significant contributions to advancing the building industry, pushing the boundaries of what is possible and setting new standards for excellence.

The Building Performance Awards undergo meticulous evaluation, emphasising data-driven performance assessment and serve as a platform to spotlight the industry’s highest achievements annually.

This year’s event once more showcased a diverse range of categories, highlighting the crucial aspects that contribute to creating sustainable, efficient and innovative built environments.

Some of the key categories included Best Digital Innovation, Project of the Year, Product or Innovation of the Year and Building Performance Champion.

British Land took the Facilities Management Award 2024 for its work across four buildings at Broadgate, in the City of London. The judges praised its strong engagement with building occupiers using real-time data, and highlighted its innovative financing mechanism for funding energy conservation measures, and said British Land’s comprehensive data set proved real-life savings and there was very positive client feedback. The judges also commended British Land for showing how it had overcome the challenges of carrying out improvements in operational buildings, and for its collaboration and knowledge sharing.

Philip Draper, Managing Director at Twenty One Engineering, was honoured with the prestigious title of Engineer of the Year. Among the numerous commendable instances of leadership and team development, Draper stood out for his unique blend of creativity and practical delivery of innovation. His genuine passion for the advancement and expansion of engineering was evident, establishing him as a true leader by example. According to the judges, Draper embodies the essence of engineering leadership, making him a deserving recipient of the Engineer of the Year award.

SGA Consulting’s York Guildhall project, recognised as the Building Performance Champion of the night, has earned this prestigious title for its outstanding achievement in rejuvenating a centuries-old structure despite facing significant regulatory, historic, and environmental challenges.
