The presentation covers the background and reasons why HIUs are used in Heat networks and communal schemes. It explains how HIUs work and the different types and their applications and the uses and benefits of HIUs over conventional systems. The presentation also covers primary flow & return temperatures, diversity and plant sizing, temperature bypasses, primary and secondary balancing and the use of pre-settable TRVs, energy metering and common problems encountered in HIU systems.

An overview of fire safety in buildings, smoke ventilation requirements and system types, options, principles of smoke clearance, smoke control and the role of the Fire Engineer and Contractor.

In many ways the use of renewable technologies is expected to replace traditional methods of providing heating and hot water services. This seminar suggests that ‘integration’ is a solution, which brings lots of benefits to property owners, and at the same time helps to reduce carbon emissions and dependence upon fossil fuels.
The technologies include Air Source Heat Pumps, Gas Absorption Heat Pumps and Solar Thermal, all of which can work in tandem with traditional high efficiency gas-fired boilers and water heaters, providing cost effective solutions.
In addition to system design and control, one of the other key aspects to achieving a successful outcome is the method of integration; this seminar covers this crucial topic in detail

Building services insulation may not be a high priority for some, the seminar sets out why it should rise up the construction agenda. Seminar content includes: Tackling the issues of overheating, in void/corridor spaces and overheating of cold water pipework. Reducing wasted energy by using building services insulation, making the most of Environmental credits in BREEAM and LEED, and optimising the design and implementation of building services insulation.

The focus is Energy Management within Buildings. Discussing the issues we face in today’s world and the demand for more energy. This moves on to the 4 pillars (steps) required to enable owners to get the best efficiency from services within their building and ultimately reduce energy wasted and thus save costs. Discussing how we have moved on from less efficient conventional methods to more modern solutions with advanced technology and functions, and demonstrate how these new functions are simple to use and easy to adapt into any installation.

School building and design remains topical with press covering the condition of existing buildings affecting teachers and pupils alike. There are concerns that with such a high focus on cost, there may be a negative impact on design/ construction for pupils. In ventilation and cooling, emphasis is placed on cost-effective design, allowing users to control temperatures and good acoustics to enable pupil focus. Fresh air is increasingly recognised as important for both health and well-being for students and teachers. This CPD presentation will cover all aspects of natural and hybrid ventilation including relevant case studies for the education sector.

Andrew will explore the following:

  • some fundamental concepts
  • recording what exists
  • what to do when a system fails
  • re-use of existing equipment
  • calculations and rules-of-thumb
  • installation – materials, aesthetics, locations and use
  • controls and operation
  • some electrical matters
