    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.

    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.

    This session will be showcasing shortlisted entries and a final award will be presented for the inaugural Building Simulation Group Prize 2018 (BSG Prize). The BSG Prize topics are aligned with CIBSE Building Performance Modelling AM11:2015.  Shortlisted entrants will have demonstrated excellent technical application of building performance modelling principles. The shortlisted entrants will present their project in a five-minute pitch. A judging panel will score the live presentations from which an overall winner will be announced.

    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 C
    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 C
    This session provides exemplar case studies and strategies for promoting health & wellbeing, in new and existing buildings and from individual buildings to wider masterplans and cities.
  4. Theatre C
    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.

    Covering issues from a broad range of areas which impact ventilation, this session provides delegates with an holistic approach to low carbon ventilation of buildings.
  2. Theatre D
    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 D
    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 D
    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.

    Series of "show and tells " to demonstrate how some digital processes actually work in real life. Taking a variety of topics from across building services and across the stages of project progression, we will show how work can be done quicker, more simply and with greater accuracy using specific software platforms, often in unusual and innovative ways. (Other platforms can be equally adept at these processes, we are showing an example only.)

    One of the biggest challenges our industry is facing is the improvement of current housing stock for energy efficiency and the health and wellbeing of occupants. Although an inexhaustible subject, this session will provide some examples of good practice in the area of domestic renovation.

    This session provides exemplar case studies and strategies for dealing with poor air quality in an urban environment, with input from a wide range of disciplines. It will also provide an introduction to the new CIBSE Air Quality working group.
  3. Theatre A
    Hydrogen has been earmarked as a pathway to our low carbon future. It can be used to power transport, store energy over long periods and to decarbonise the heating industry when used to replace natural gas. It offers many benefits and can work to complement renewables in the energy mix.

Theatre C
  1. Theatre C
    This session examines how manufacturers should be engaging with their clients (consultants, contractors and facility managers) with data. How do we realistically start to resolve the problems highlighted?
  2. Theatre C
    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 C
    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 C
    This session examines the early design considerations for daylight, covering the need for integrated design of the site layout, building layout and facade, and the interlinked impact of issues such as overheating and light quality.
Theatre D
  1. Theatre D
    Understanding the balance between the building fabric, building services and people is critical for good building performance. CIBSE has worked with partners to devise an Energy Benchmarking tool which will inform decision-making. This session provides an update on the tool, and discusses the building performance triangle (fabric + services + people).
  2. Theatre D
    This session provides an overview of the findings from the design for performance pilots, and possibly other approaches that have also achieved very good performance, for example energy performance contracts on existing buildings.
  3. Theatre D
    This session looks at the impacts of controls, digital and facilities management on the performance of buildings.
