Last year’s CIBSE Ireland Architecture & Building Expo Breakfast Briefing — presented by The Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE Ireland) in conjunction with SEAI — focused on the Deep Retrofit Pilot Programme. This year it will focus on progress made to date and, more importantly, lessons learned. The outcomes have also helped inform SEAI’s grant-support initiatives.
Once again the event will be hosted and presented by CIBSE Ireland. After very brief introductions from the select panel of industry experts, 90% of the proceedings will comprise panel members fielding questions from the floor, and interacting with one another, to share their respective views and opinions. The open forum format is designed so that all participants — panel members and audience alike — contribute to the learning curve.
Attendance is free CIBSE. Programme commences at 10.30am and concludes at 12noon. Teas/coffees/croissants on arrival. To register simply log on to here.

As 2018 marks CIBSE Ireland’s 50th anniversary, we have devised a new awards scheme designed to recognise, and promote, best practice in respect of the design and installation of building services, and covering both new-build and refurbishment across commercial and industrial (non-domestic) projects.
These awards are open to the design consultant and mechanical or electrical contractor, and submissions must be a joint entry by both the consultant and contractor.
Buildings that are eligible for submission include: hospitality, leisure, health, commercial, industrial, retail, pharmaceutical, educational facilities and offices buildings.
There are three categories for the CIBSE Ireland Awards, and they are sponsored respectively by Daikin, Hevac and Wilo. These are:

The categories are based on services cost e.g. mechanical or electrical.
Applicants may enter only one project per category.
