Building Simulation Group Award
The Building Simulation Group (BSG) of the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE), supports and encourages the application of advanced building simulation tools for building and system design with the aim of achieving reliability and best performance in terms of energy efficiency, CO2 emission and environmental quality. In 2012 the Group initiated an annual prize open to postgraduate students from UK and overseas universities who undertake a research project at Master’s level or equivalent which includes a major element involving the application of building simulation tools in the research. The aim is to encourage the use of, and develop innovation in, building simulation techniques for research and development.
In 2015 Integrated Environmental Solutions Ltd (IES) started sponsoring this prize by offering the incentives as described in this announcement.
Challenge for 2018 will be available here in due course.
