CIBSE and CIBSE Scotland are to host a two-day conference at the University of Strathclyde, focusing on issues related to building services in the region.

Day one of the conference, on 7 June, will look at CO2 emission reduction and operational efficiencies, while day two – on 8 June – will examine the Building Safety Act as it applies to Scotland.

Confirmed speakers for day one include: NHS Scotland Assure’s Michael Cassells, who will be talking about net zero healthcare; Star Refrigeration’s Dave Pearson, discussing heat pumps; Arup’s Karen Warner, presenting on smart buildings; and Scottish Renewables’ Helen Melone, who will talk about heat networks.

There will also be a presentation on a Passivhaus case study from Max Fordham’s Gwilym Still and Heather Fox, while Alan Crichton, from Sprinktec, will discuss fire protection.

NHS Scotland Assure’s Thomas Rodger will discuss infection control, and Richard Atkins will look at impact of regulations on design.

The second day of the conference will focus on the Building Safety Act, and highlight differences between England and Scotland. It will consider the response to Grenfell and will feature the requirements for those working in Scotland and how the Act relates to them, and their obligations when working on projects in England.
