Three Teams do the Double at 2018 CIBSE
Building Performance Awards
T
hree
organisations
were
double-winners at this year’s
CIBSE Building Performance
Awards, with the results announced
on 6 February at the Grosvenor
House Hotel, London. Organised by
the Chartered Institution of Building
Services Engineers, the awards focus
on the delivered actual performance
outcomes achieved by buildings and
projects and not on design stage
promises.
The University of Oxford won the
coveted
Building
Performance
Champion
title
and
Facilities
Management Team of the Year. Both
awards were for its ambitious Carbon
Reduction Programme which sets out to
reduce the university’s direct carbon
emissions by 33% by 2020 against a
2005/6 baseline.
The judges were impressed with the
programme’s wide-ranging stakeholder
engagement which has resulted in a
host of collaborative initiatives and new
carbon-saving partnerships being
developed between staff, students, the
City Council and industry. They said:
“The University of Oxford is leading the
way for the higher education sector, not
only in the global rankings of
universities, but in the management of
their extensive and diverse estate”.
Elementa Consulting and BuroHappold
Engineering were the evening’s other
double winners. Elementa Consulting
took
the
Building
Performance
Consultancy (up to 100 employees) and
the International Project of the Year
awards for its engineering design of an
ultra-low energy laboratory at Pomona
College, California, USA. BuroHappold
Engineering triumphed in the Building
Performance Consultancy (over 1000
employees) category and won the
Energy Efficient Product or Innovation
category for its NewMass cooling
system.
Other

Building
Performance Awards winners include:
Architype,BDP, Choice Housing Ireland,
Energy Action, Landsec, Max Fordham,
NPS North West, Q-Bot and Willmott

CIBSE President Peter Y Wong said:
“The CIBSE Building Performance
Awards increasingly stand for ethical,
sustainable and environmentally sound
business. Those organisations who
take their commitment to energy
12
management and WELL Building
seriously should be championed and
their examples followed by others. I
praise the good work of all the finalists
and winners and encourage others to
follow their lead.”
