Three double winners at CIBSE Building Performance Awards

Three organisations were double-winners at this year’s CIBSE Building Performance Awards, with the results announced on February 6 at the Grosvenor House Hotel, London. 

The University of Oxford won both the Building Performance Champion and Facilities Management Team of the Year awards.

Organised by the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers, the awards focus on the delivered actual performance outcomes achieved by buildings and projects and not on design stage promises. 

The University of Oxford won the coveted Building Performance Champion title and Facilities Management Team of the Year. Both awards were for its ambitious Carbon Reduction Programme which sets out to reduce the university’s direct carbon emissions by 33 percent by 2020 against a 2005/6 baseline. 

The judges were impressed with the programme’s wide-ranging stakeholder engagement, which has resulted in a host of collaborative initiatives and new carbon-saving partnerships being developed between staff, students, the City Council and industry. They said: “The University of Oxford is leading the way for the higher education sector, not only in the global rankings of universities, but in the management of their extensive and diverse estate.”

Elementa Consulting and BuroHappold Engineering were the evening’s other double winners. Elementa Consulting took the Building Performance Consultancy (up to 100 employees) and the International Project of the Year awards for its engineering design of an ultra-low energy laboratory at Pomona College, California, USA. BuroHappold Engineering triumphed in the Building Performance Consultancy (over 1000 employees) category and won the Energy Efficient Product or Innovation category for its NewMass cooling system.

Other 2018 CIBSE Building Performance Awards winners included Architype,BDP, Choice Housing Ireland, Energy Action, Landsec, Max Fordham, NPS North West, Q-Bot and Willmott Dixon.

CIBSE President Peter Y Wong said: “The CIBSE Building Performance Awards increasingly stand for ethical, sustainable and environmentally sound business. Those organisations who take their commitment to energy management and WELL Building seriously should be championed and their examples followed by others. I praise the good work of all the finalists and winners and encourage others to follow their lead.”
