North East Committee

Join the North East Committee

We are looking for individuals to join the North East Region Committee. Chaired by Phillip Hilton-West the Committee have events planned over the next few months but are looking for new members to help develop their events programme and engage more members across the region.

Joining a CIBSE committee can be very rewarding and is good for developing skills, it also provides great networking opportunities. As well the chance to contribute to the region and the industry, committee work counts as CPD. A key task is coordinating and scheduling the programme of events. In addition, committee members are expected to attend some of the events and meetings occasionally as needed before or after a planned event. 

With more Committee Members we can reach out to the wider community and increase networking and a range of other benefits to the members in the region. 

If you would be interested in finding out more about joining the North East Region Committee please contact Phillip Hilton-West at [email protected]

Phillip Hilton-West, Regional Chair


Phillip is a Chartered Engineer and holds a BEng in Building Services Engineering from Northumbria University. He has over 15 years’ experience of working in the Construction industry as a mechanical design consultant, working on a wide range of sectors in the UK and overseas. He has a particular interest in low energy design solutions, to limit carbon emissions produced from both embodied energy and ongoing building operational energy.
Phillip joined the regional committee in 2016 and was nominated as vice chair in 2018.
Phillip said “whilst in my regional role, I hope to try and raise the awareness of BSE within schools and promote the opportunities available in both consultancy and contractor roles. When I joined the industry 15 years ago, there was a shortage of Engineers and we still haven’t changed this. Hopefully myself and the regional committee can work to try and change this cycle.”
