1. Is Engineering an Art? CIBSE Presidential Address
This is a wonderful opportunity for local members in the Midlands to hear the new CIBSE President, Peter Wong, set out the principles that will guide him through his presidential year, and the key priorities he has in his time as CIBSE leader. At his inaugural CIBSE Presidential speech, held at the Royal Society of Engineering in London, Peter posed a question: “Is engineering art?” He continued “CIBSE think it IS art. In our Charter, we say ‘we exist to support the Science, Art and Practice of building services engineering’.”
2. Heat Network Performance and Overheating in Residential Buildings
The presentation will focus on heat network performance and the interrelationship between overheating issues and poor energy performance in residential buildings. The presentation will focus on some first principle explanations as to why some systems fail to meet expected performance and present an alternate type of heat network design using heat pump technology.
