Today, the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) has announced its intentions to continue using events and conferences as means of guiding members and offering advice to a broad spectrum of building services professionals. CIBSE looks forward to a strong presence at Ecobuild 2013 where several of the 2013 Building Performance Award winners will be showcasing their achievements. CIBSE is also committed to staging its much-demanded Building Services conference, a platform that encourages interaction and lively debate around demand reduction and engineering excellence, and confirms CIBSE as the voice of authority on all matters related to Building Performance.
This year, 2012, saw CIBSE collaborate with UBM Live for a successful and debate-evoking conference and exhibition as part of their Building Services Event. UBM has announced they will be focusing on Ecobuild this year, and CIBSE are proud to be partnering with them for this event. The CIBSE stand will be designed to attract members and those interested in performance to discuss the many important issues affecting the industry. As standard-setter for the building services sector, CIBSE provides the know-how for engineering excellence in building performance excellence, driving sustainability and energy efficiency.
The Institution is exploring new ways to host the much-valued CIBSE conference in 2013 and hopes to attract the same broad range of professionals and variety of debate as in previous years. The event will be a forum for professionals to discuss in detail how to encourage building performance, cope with new legislation, embrace technology and communicate between architect, contractor, building services engineer, facilities manager and end user.
With constant changes in technology and legislation, CIBSE’s benchmarking standards and internationally recognised guides and codes are just one aspect of the professional guidance members have come to expect from the organisation. With unprecedented change during 2012 and George Osborne announcing a £5m boost in the construction industry, it is safe to assume 2013 will be another interesting year for CIBSE and its members.
