CIBSE to launch new HVAC group

CIBSE will launch a HVAC Systems Group to support and encourage the efficient design, installation and operation of HVAC systems. 

Launching at Build2Perform Live, taking place on 21-22 November at London's Olympia, the new group will act as a forum to exchange best practice knowledge in the efficient design and operation of HVAC systems.

Heating and cooling systems can be the largest users of energy in buildings, and they are also some of the hardest services to decarbonise and manage effectively. As national policy turns to the challenge of low carbon heat, this new CIBSE group will provide a forum for sharing new developments and experience in the effective design and operation of low carbon heating, ventilation and cooling systems.

While a building’s indoor air quality and environmental conditions are critical to occupants’ health, well-being and productivity, the HVAC systems often get overlooked when it comes to driving innovation in building services and delivering better buildings. The new group aims to broaden knowledge and awareness of strategic and practical issues, latest developments and new technologies related to HVAC systems.

The group will also identify knowledge gaps in the design and operation of HVAC systems to promote research in these areas, in addition to contributing to the development of new publications and the maintenance of existing guidance such as CIBSE Guide B.

Professor Tony Day, executive director at the International Energy Research Centre, Tyndall National Institute, Cork, will chair the new group.

He commented: “I am delighted to see the launch of this long-awaited special interest group on HVAC systems. We can often overlook the importance of these core services, and how better specification, design and operation can deliver huge benefits for building performance.

“Continued advances in information technology, sensor systems, and innovations in thermal engineering have the potential to transform these systems.

“This group will help our industry develop better systems thinking and cross disciplinary working, and ensure best practice and innovation is shared across the sector”.

The launch event for the group will took place at CIBSE’s Build2Perform Live event at London’s Olympia on 22 November 2017.
