The CIBSE Building Simulation Awards 2021 and the CIBSE Building Simulation Young Modeller 2021 are open for entries.

The awards focus on the use of building simulation in projects and aim to encourage innovation in building simulation techniques.

Entries should provide information on a project that has a simulation or modelling aspect, giving details of why simulation and modelling were important.

Entries will be reviewed by a panel of experts, which will select six entrants to present their work at an online event in November, after which the winner will be announced.

The Young Modeller awards recognise the outstanding contributions of young engineers, apprentices and sustainability consultants working with building simulation, and encompass any type of simulation for the built environment.

The competition is open to anyone who holds a position in academia, industry or the public sector and who is within three years of completing their highest degree, as well as undergraduates, apprentices or those graduating in 2021-22.

Entrants should submit samples of their work, a CV and a referee’s testimonial. Entries will be peer-reviewed, and the winner will be announced at the online event in November 2021.

This year, you can register your interest in the 2021 CIBSE Building Simulation Awards by completing a short form ahead of full entry details.

The deadline for entries is 22 October. Enter at CIBSE – Building Simulation Group and watch past events at CIBSE Building Simulation Group (
