Last night I joined 700 guests at Grosvenor House on Park Lane in London for a special evening to celebrate the 2018 CIBSE Building Performance Awards. It was also a great  opportunity to hear sustainability pioneer Julie Hailes MBE who was the guest speaker.

The CIBSE Building Performance Awards

The CIBSE Building Performance Awards recognise the people, products and projects that demonstrate engineering excellence in the built environment.

They are the only industry Awards that focus on actual, measured performance outcomes, not just design intent or performance specifications.

Overall Winner

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 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”.
