21 April 2016

A team from London South Bank University (LSBU)’s School of The Built Environment and Architecture has been praised by the Chartered Institute of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE), winning the award of ‘best paper’ at the organisation’s recent Technical Symposium.

The paper, An Investigation of Cooling Unit Performance on the London Underground Railway Network, is co-written by Prof. Graeme Maidment, Alex Paurine, Matt Wenger (LSBU) and London Underground (LU). It describes the University's work with LU on the design and trial of a new air handling unit for tube station platforms, improving cooling performance whilst delivering reliability and efficiency, to improve the experience and comfort of passengers.

CIBSE is the leading professional association for building services engineers and its annual Technical Symposium aims to encourage the participation of both young and experienced industry practitioners, universities, research organisations and others to share experience, best practice, and develop networks. The LSBU authored paper was selected for the award out of nearly 100 papers presented at the symposium.
