National conference at LSBU to discuss how to deliver a safer, healthier and more sustainable built environment

15 April 2022

The Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) will be holding their annual technical symposium in person at London South Bank University (LSBU) from 21 – 22 April 2022, after two years where the event was held online. The CIBSE national annual technical symposium, ‘Delivering a Safe, Healthy and Sustainable Built Environment’, will include peer-reviewed presentations on the latest developments in policy, guidance and practice about how building services engineers can design and deliver safer, more healthy and sustainable buildings.

Among the  key speakers at the CIBSE annual technical symposium and organising and scientific committee are LSBU experts on energy, air conditioning, refrigeration and buildings:

Professor Taraneh Dean, LSBU Provost, will be opening the CIBSE technical symposium event with the Welcome at 09.30 on 21 April 2022.

The CIBSE - Technical Symposium 2022 programme covers seven key themes:

  • Whole life carbon assessment and the growing importance of embodied carbon
  • Operational energy performance assessment at the design stage, including Design for Performance & NABERS UK
  • The potential of new technologies and approaches to reduce emissions in the future
  • The importance of ventilation to achieving good indoor air quality & implications for healthy indoor environments
  • Lighting, shading and the health impacts of light
  • Overheating and environmental modelling of buildings

Professor Taraneh Dean, LSBU Provost said, “I’m incredibly proud that LSBU is hosting this leading national conference on tackling one if the biggest challenges we face in the UK, how to deliver a Safer, Healthier and more Sustainable Built Environment. LSBU have some the UK’s experts in this vital area who are leading work on revolutionary award-winning schemes  like the GreenSCIES and Bunhill 2 which are the first of its kind to decarbonise heat in London and around the world, reduce heating bills for consumers, cut carbon emissions, improve air quality and make our cities more energy self-sufficient.I am looking forward to welcoming leading figures in energy, built environment and sustainability to LSBU for this major national conference which will focus on vital issues for our communities, our country and the world.”CIBSE is a leading professional body and global network that is‘dedicated to improving building performance through engineeringexcellence’ and promotes building services engineer careers by accrediting courses F.E. and H.E., approving work based training programmes and providing routes to full professional Registration and Membership, including Chartered Engineer.
