21 September 2020
The first ever virtual CIBSE ASHRAE Technical Symposium took place on 14-15 September, with participation from a number of IEDE academics.
Prof Tim Dwyer, IEDE visiting Professor of Building Services Systems, chaired the first virtual CIBSE ASHRAE Technical Symposium - "Engineering Buildings, Systems and Environments for Effective Operation’.
The online event with 70 presentations from around the world attracted over 300 delegates using a novel customised app to link presentations to live Q&A’s. The symposium featured a lively real-time debate, some outstanding keynote presentations from leading industry academics and a continuing forum "Designing for building performance needs to focus on real outcomes not theoretical calculations”. The papers and presentation recordings are available online and accessible to registered delegates for three months.
UCL was strongly represented by:
- Tim Dwyer (Honorary Professor, UCL Institute for Environmental Design and Engineering) - "Engineering Buildings, Systems and Environments for Effective Operation’;
- Spyridon Efthymiopoulos (PhD Student, UCL Department of Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering) - "Developing a methodology to assess mould growth hidden behind internal wall insulation”;
- Daniel Godoy-Shimizu (Research Assistant, UCL Energy Institute) - "Examining the opportunities for improving residential buildings in London using EPCs and a fully disaggregated stock model”
- Nishesh Jain (PhD Student, UCL Institute for Environmental Design and Engineering) - "Using model calibration to develop a measurement and verification framework for managing the energy performance gap in buildings”
