CABE & CIBSE join forces to discuss key challenges for industry professionals

Posted: 8th August 2023

Richard Harral (CABE) and Dr. Hywel Davies (CIBSE) meet to discuss industry challenges and future developments in a one-off video.

Chartered Association of Building Engineers’ (CABE) Technical Director Richard Harral and Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers’ (CIBSE) Chief Technical Officer Dr. Hywel Davies recently engaged in a discussion about the most pressing challenges faced by professionals in the construction industry resulting from introduction of the Building Safety Act 2022, and we are delighted to present this to you.

Topics discussed in the hour-long session include changes for residential and higher-risk buildings under the Act, and how both CABE and CIBSE are helping members to meet competency requirements.

The Building Safety Act (2022) is ‘the biggest shake-up of the system of building regulation since World War 2’, and the video aims to provide valuable insights and practical solutions, creating an engaging hour-long continuing professional development (CPD) resource. Furthermore, it promises inspiring content for the professional looking to navigate the complexities of the field of work.

This isn’t the only CABE-CIBSE collaboration for 2023, as coming up in December, CABE’s NEW Built Environment LIVE and CIBSE’s Build2Perform co-locate together at London’s ExCeL in December 2023 to create “Building Performance Week.”

CABE is proud to partner with CIBSE to bring the all-new ‘Built Environment LIVE’ to their long-standing ‘Build2Perform LIVE’ exhibition, at ExCeL London from 5-6 December 2023.

2023 is the maiden year for Built Environment LIVE – an unmissable FREE two-day live technical symposium and exhibition, featuring key leadership speakers from across building safety, building regulatory and specialist professions.

This groundbreaking event combines construction specialists and budding talent alongside a technical trade exhibition, exploring the most pressing and wide-reaching challenges, aiming to enlighten construction professionals to the opportunities within the broad spectrum of our industry.
