CIBSE East Anglia Engineering Excellence Awards
The focus of the CIBSE East Anglia Engineering Excellence Award is on demonstrable ‘excellence’ in the provision of Mechanical and Electrical engineering services in buildings. Candidates who entered were asked to supply information under a range of criteria.
The winner of the 2019 CIBSE East Anglia Engineering Excellence Award is Aiden Sheeran of Concertus Design and Property Consultants, for a new 210 place, purpose-built primary school for Suffolk County Council, located in the village of Red Lodge.
The judges’ commented: “The work carried out by Aiden resulted in an energy efficient building which balances the use of natural daylight and hybrid ventilation systems, to ensure occupant comfort.
“Due to the impact of Grenfell, late changes to the design had to be made to incorporate a re-working of the thermal model for a change in wall and floor insulation layers. Despite this, the programme was achieved, and the Client was able to occupy the building on the original date given.”
“The design achieved a reduced emissions rate and an EPC rating of 19, falling within Band A. Early indications are that the building is exceeding its estimated energy performance.”
