As a built environment practitioner, the climate emergency will affect the way you work. How much of a positive impact you will make is now the important question. Moving past awareness of the issues, our industry, like many others has begun a search for the strategies and solutions that will have the smallest environmental impact on the world around us.
Contractors, architects, engineers and building owners are all seeking answers to the same questions as we move towards net zero emissions by 2030. The building services industry at large has a role to play in the impact new and existing buildings will have on our environment. New buildings and upgrades today need to keep this requirement at the forefront of all planning and design decisions. The current generation of up and coming building services professionals are key to discovering, developing, designing and implementing solutions for the built environment that will take buildings beyond 2030 with net zero or carbon positive impacts.
The Student, Graduate and Engineer of the Year will understand the issues the industry faces and be able to consider the best solutions and strategies to overcome these.
For the 2020 video response Graduates (with up to 2 years' industry experience) and Young Engineers (with 3 to 7 years' industry experience) are asked to consider:
Given your own work experience and field of expertise, what changes need to occur in planning the built environment today to help achieve a desirable, high-performing, sustainable built environment one decade on?
The Student of the Year competition will ask University students to consider:
Using your current interest in the built environment and review of global trends, what changes need to occur in planning the built environment today to help achieve a desirable, high-performing, sustainable built environment one decade on?
Nine finalists will be invited to the CIBSE ANZ Annual Function and Awards night in Sydney on 23 July 2020 where the winner of each of the three competitions will be announced and awarded a $1000 cash prize.
“When we consider what we do as a whole rather than as individuals and with a common goal such as reducing carbon emissions, it is exciting to see the amount of change that can occur.”
– Gareth Arnold, Electrical Engineer at Aurecon and 2019 Young Engineer of the Year finalist.
