A number of new speakers have been announced for the Building Services Summit 2016.

The Summit has been jointly organised by The Building Controls Industry Association (BCIA), Building Engineering Services Association (BESA) and Electrical Contractors Association (ECA). It takes place on 23rd November 2016, at the British Library, London.

Organised by BCIA, BESA and ECA members, the conference will give everyone an opportunity to share ideas by taking part in lively and informative discussions.

Speakers will include Roy Evans of the Cabinet Office who leads on Government Soft Landings (GSL), which is an objective of the Government’s 2016-2020 Construction Strategy. Roy will be joined by Dr Karon Buck, founding principal of Medway UTC, a new school for 14-19-year-old students from Medway and the surrounding regions. Dr Susan Scurlock is also joining the speakers’ panel. She founded Primary Engineer in response to the G overnment’s call for more young people to be attracted into the engineering profession in 2005.

Other industry experts joining the discussion include Bill Wright of ECA, an independent consultant on energy, control and sustainability matters; Graham Wright, legislation specialist at Daikin and president of FETA; David Frise, head of sustainability for BESA and Stephen Hill, an associate and building performance engineer for Arup.

The 10-80-10 Summit will discuss issues including:

•           Is the process of construction broken?

•           Do building regulations stifle innovation?

•           Why aren’t clients using the technological tools that are available?

•           What are the alternatives to the current process of construction?

BCIA president Malcolm Anson said: “We have assembled some of the world’s most qualified experts to speak about how building engineering services can operate efficiently and effectively to reshape the future of our buildings.”

“The leading industry experts will discuss the most topical questions in the construction sector and will address the challenges of a long-term building efficiency. The discussion will help the building owners and facilities managers to understand where efficiencies can be made in both new and existing buildings.”

Tickets to the event cost £36. To book and for more information visit:
