First of all a big thank you to those who attended my webinar last Friday on 'Pressurisation Systems in residential and commercial buildings'. If you missed it or would like to watch it again a recorded version is available here. Many questions were asked after the presentation and I decided to post the most interesting ones up here for everybody’s benefit.
In March a joint CIBSE/ASHRAE event on Sustainability and Smoke Control was held in London by John H. Klote, known throughout the world as an expert on smoke control. Here are his top nine takeaways from the event:
The inquest into the Lakanal House tragedy concluded last week and the published verdict and recommendations raise important concerns regarding fire safety in local authority tower blocks, and particularly in aged housing stock.
We all run on a very busy schedule and sometimes professional development takes a back seat for lack of time. The webinars we have held this past year have proved popular, as they offer a way to learn more on topics central to our industry without leaving your desk. To make it even easier to plan ahead and fit your professional development within your busy schedule, we are publishing dates for our upcoming webinars, all of which are held at 12:30 UK time:
Last September we wrote about a project to develop a bioreactive façade using micro-algae: this is now a reality at the BIQ house, the world’s first pilot project to showcase a bioreactive façade at the International Building Exhibition (IBA) in Hamburg.
The traditional approach to ventilating big production facilities relied on relatively extensive ductwork in a one-size-fits-all type of solution. Nowadays, however, ventilation systems must meet multiple requirements. On the one hand, they must provide a comfortable and productive working environment for production staff, as well as meeting regulatory requirements in terms of internal air quality, temperatures and humidity levels. On the other hand, plant managers demand energy efficiency, low running costs and low environmental impact.
