IAQ issues a focus for CIBSE

Air quality has hit the headlines again in recent weeks with a study of leading health professionals identifying the harm air pollution is doing to children. But what are the realities of building for  better Indoor Air Quality and what technologies are available? This theme will be explored in the 2019 CIBSE Technical Symposium in April.

The session stream, titled The realities of building IAQ (Indoor Air Quality), will look at new research and case-studies related to this area of growing concern. Planned presentations include: a review of the current state of IAQ science and instrumenting technologies; how plants can act as a building service, improving indoor air quality and reducing energy consumption; a case-study showing an exemplar approach to IAQ in a new office fit-out; and a study of the link between indoor environment and workplace productivity.

The 2019 Symposium, organised by the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) and now in its ninth year, is taking place at the University of Sheffield on April 25 and 26.

The theme for this year’s event Transforming Built Environments – driving change with engineering, will focus on the advances in materials, technologies and techniques which lead to and motivate positive change.

Attendees will gain access to over 70 presentations, case studies and research papers across the two-day event. 

As well as covering IAQ the planned core session streams will cover the wide range of research and development being undertaken across the built environment industry. These include: informing 
future performance assessment; commissioning and operation; sourcing energy with low environmental impact; delivering and assessing performance in building lighting; modelling and simulation; developing sustainable buildings and systems; heat networks; and passive design.

The Technical Symposium is a diverse and inclusive event which provides an opportunity for students, building services professionals and academics to examine and share research, 
developments and applications that will drive change in the built environment.
