Resilience and Building Services:
How to secure the future
The British Museum, London
CIBSE’s 2010 National Conference takes place in London where
the theme for two days will be resilience for building services
companies and for building owners and operators focusing on
design, energy and technology. It will also discuss the business
opportunities from forthcoming legislation.
To stand up to the weather, the economy and whatever else life
throws at us, we need information. The most useful information is
about where the opportunities are and how to take advantage of
them. Which strategies will work for a range of possible scenarios
and which could easily be derailed.
This conference will equip building services specialists with an
insight into scenario planning for commercial resilience and it
will provide information on the political, legal, environmental and
technical changes which will have significant impact in the next
two to five years. There will be sessions on ensuring that your
designs are resilient, and that you have adequately managed
legal, contractual and other risks.
For the technically astute, there will be sessions on energy
demand management and balancing, smart grids and IP
networks; on the use of multiple renewable; on providing real
value from commissioning and on the issues of real versus
predicted energy use in buildings.
Who should attend?
CIBSE’s National Conference regularly attracts over 300 building
services professionals, clients and suppliers. The conference is
open to all but the majority of attendees will be senior managers
and key decision makers in consulting and contracting firms,
young building services engineers wanting to broaden their
knowledge and skills, and building owners and occupiers
wanting to secure the value of their properties. Anyone with an
interest in the future of the building services and property industry
should attend, particularly:

Conference dinner & debate,
27th April 2010 hosted by the Young Engineers Network
This year’s dinner will again be hosted by the Young
Engineers Network and will take place at Paramount,
Centre Point. Completed in 1966, the 117m high Centre
Point building was one of the first skyscrapers in
London and remains one of its most iconic structures.
Located near to the conference venue, The British
Museum, our dinner will take place on Level 31 with
spectacular 360° views of London.
The three course dinner will be followed by a
discussion entitled ‘CIBSE believes that a sustainable
built environment can only be achieved if the supply
chain approaches all its projects in a holistic way and
building services engineers work in integrated teams
with other professions’.
Tickets for the dinner are only £45 per head so bring a
client or colleague to join in the dinner and debate
Chaired by Ewen Rose, vice chair of CIBSE Patrons.
