    The UK heating market continues to face a dramatic revolution in the decarbonisation of its systems, and reduction of its reliance on fossil fuel gas sources. In this seminar we will explore the impacts of recent national, regional and local policy changes on larger District heating and energy systems. Increasingly these tie together diverse environmental and wellbeing drivers, resulting in a complex mix of impacts on heating in systems.
  3. Theatre A
    Following the recent near miss on gas supply shortage, it is now time for engineers to take a lead role in making changes to our building systems and designs, to actively create energy independence, and future proof our economy.
  4. Theatre A
    Energy benchmarks are widely used in all stages of building design and operation. It is important they are up-to-date and reflect the advances in building practices and technology. This session will present a dynamic approach to providing energy benchmark, a case study of their use as well as a European perspective.

    How can environmental policies increase the resilience of cities? This session focuses on those cities which are leading the way in terms of building a resilient urban environment.
  2. Theatre B
    Water and flood management in buildings and cities is of vital importance to resource efficiency and increased resilience of our urban living. This session, a collaboration between the Society of Public Health engineers and the Resilient Cities Special Interest Group, will provide an overview of current research and urban design solutions in this area.
  3. Theatre B
    This session examines the benefits of bringing both manufacturers and facilities managers early in to the design process, resulting in lower risks and reduced costs over the lifetime of the building’s use. Insights are shared from operations and we explore what efficient operation is and how competency in FM is an integral part of achieving successful building design and performance.
  4. Theatre B
    CIBSE’s Building Simulation Group have long been discussing the need for a certification scheme that recognises the expertise of building simulation professionals and promotes best practice in building simulation modelling. This session will review recent industry feedback and participants will become part of the ongoing discussion on the need of certification, how it can be developed, and its value. The format for the session is group discussion. A number of questions will be presented for participants answer, providing an opportunity to have an active input into the development of future certifications.
Theatre C
  1. Theatre C

    Can the building services sector respond to the irresistible move towards transparency in the operation of buildings? Three CIBSE Fellows look at the barriers to delivering guaranteed outcomes for energy use and environmental comfort and discuss how they can be overcome.

  2. Theatre C
    External noise can be a significant constraint to the use of natural ventilation, but there are a range of strategies available to help practitioners in challenging noise environments.  This session looks at opportunities in dwellings, schools, and commercial buildings.  After a series of short presentations, there will be a panel discussion, to evaluate what they see as the opportunities and constraints for buildings.
  3. Theatre C
    CIBSE guidance AM10 covers natural ventilation design and application. The culmination of contributions from academic and industrial partners, this session introduces the revised edition, which showcases new case study examples and an update of calculation methodologies.
  4. Theatre C
    What does good building performance look like in a school? This session will examine what building performance is in schools, framing school building design against the changing regulations, reducing budgets, and changing educational visions. After a series of short presentations, there will be a panel discussion, to evaluate what they see as the performance of buildings.
VIP Theatre
  1. VIP Theatre
    Construction is currently undergoing a transformation that will disrupt our industry – are we prepared? As part of its Industrial Strategy, Government has set the challenge to transform construction to make buildings more affordable, efficient, safer and healthier. The productionising of construction is having far-reaching impacts and this session will explore what this will mean for those involved in improving the performance of buildings.
Headline Theatre
  1. Headline Theatre
    Please join us for the first CIBSE's Inclusivity Panel event, we promise a lively discussion exploring how women want to work in the built environment and what can be done by industry to enable this.  Do we want to ‘lean in’ to a working world that’s dated and restrictive or can we find ways to break the status quo and encourage more inclusive workplace cultures and practices? Followed by informal networking over hot drinks and pastries.  Women and men are invited to join the conversation.
  2. Headline Theatre
    From fire safety to clean air, the London Plan to environmental principles and governance after EU exit, it has been a busy year in terms of policy. Find out the latest on how changes to regulations and legislation will affect you, and hear from a Government official about the planned launch of a consultation in 2019 related to the review of Part L standards
  3. Headline Theatre

    This session will include some of the latest and ground-breaking software developments in a range of different fields. Topics include 4D visualisation of energy and water consumption loads, parametric design to create buildings and enabling the procurer to prioritise their funding based on pre-occupancy evaluation information. Autodesk and Revit insights as well as innovating modelling methods around drainage systems, luminaire maintenance factor and effective concept load calculations.

    Lighting through good design, installation and ongoing maintenance is becoming an increasingly complex subject, but not without significant benefits for the end users if lighting installations are designed correctly & appropriately and then commissioned & maintained to preserve the design intent throughout the lighting installation’s life time.
  3. Theatre B
    Engineers need to appreciate that whilst these specialisms use a varity of common equipment, materials and calculations, there are some fundamental differences of approach to determine how the system is to be designed and commissioned to ensure it is working effectively. This session will provide delegates with an understanding of the differences between these two areas of expertise, the correct approach to take when considering and designing LEV systems, and what good looks like.
  4. Theatre B
