2021 Seminar Series: Call for Papers




2021 Seminar Series: Call for Papers


The CIBSE Seminar Series this year will examine future trends in healthy building design and operation for both long and short term resilience. It will be presented virtually as 5 weekly lunchtime sessions through September and October. With a number of speaker opportunities still available, we are calling for papers that explore this year’s theme.

2020 has shown us that resilience is not just a long-term planning consideration. 

​Diligent engineering can mitigate the negative environmental impact of buildings and protect against the likelihood of extreme climate fluctuations whilst providing flexible working spaces for the future.

  • What does potentially highly dynamic occupancy mean for performance in our commercial spaces?
  • What does the latest research into health and wellbeing tell us to improve defence against pandemic-type events?
  • What are the implications on changing insurance and liability implications for building owners?
  • How can our modelling tools be used to inform the impact of future climate conditions, impacts to ventilation requirements and bushfire & storm events?

This 2021 virtual seminar series, comprising of five lunchtime sessions in September and October, will explore these questions and round out with leading-edge University and Hospital case studies demonstrating best practice design that utilise Passive House and envelope performance solutions.
