CIBSE announces winners of 2013 Building Performance Awards

The winners of this year's Building Performance Awards were revealed by CIBSE (Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers) at an awards ceremony held at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London on 5 February.

CIBSE's Building Performance Awards are designed to involve clients and the full supply chain, as well as recognising the role of building services engineers, and rewarding the best examples of actual performance, innovation and practice.

Winner of the Training for Building Performance Award, sponsored by Vaillant, was Land Securities for its Low Carbon Fit Out Guide for Retail 2012. Building Services Consultancy of the Year (sponsored by Baxi Commercial Division) was Hoare Lea.

Redwood Systems won the Energy-using Product Award, sponsored by Spirotech, for its Lighting Platform.

The winner of the Passive (energy related) Product of the Year, sponsored by CMR, was the Aerogel Solar Collector from Buro Happold and Brunel University, in collaboration with Fraser Brown Mackenna Architects, Nuaire Ltd, Xtralite Ltd and Permarock Products.

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries sponsored the Collaborative Working Award category which was won by Atkins and London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. The Client Energy Management Award was sponsored by Lochinvar and the winner was British Land.

The award for New Build Project of the Year (value up to £5 million), sponsored by Flškt Woods, went to Bushbury Hill Primary School, Wolverhampton and Architype Ltd and E3 Consulting Engineers LLP. Meanwhile, the accolade for New Build Project of the Year (value above £5 million), sponsored by Amtech, was won by Max Fordham and The Hive, Worcester.

The Hitachi-sponsored Refurbishment Project Award was won by Green Tomato Energy for Number 20 Lena Gardens, London.

Imtech Technical Services sponsored the Client of the Year award which was won by Whitbread Hotels and Restaurants.

Finally, British Land was named Carbon Champion of the Year in a category sponsored by Rehema Commercial. The Judges commented that British Land is an excellent example of how good building performance supports good commercial performance. Since 2009, the company has achieved energy cost savings for its occupiers of £1.6m.

This year's judging panel included: Paddy Conaghan, Hoare Lea; Kevin Kelly, Dublin Institute of Technology; Graham Manly OBE, Gratte Brothers Group Ltd; Foroutan Parand, URS Infrastructures and Environment UK; John Field, TEAM; David Vincent, David Vincent & Associates; Susie Diamond, Inkling LLP, Jeff House, BAXI Commercial Division and Hywel Davies, CIBSE Technical Director.

Building performance has taken on an increased significance as it focuses on enabling efficient energy consumption within the built environment. CIBSE President, David Fisk, said: "Since our buildings use nearly half our energy, this should be a matter of national priority. The projects and products showcased tonight show us what can be achieved and raise the bar of best practice for all of us in the built environment."
