Cathie Simpson of Building Simulation
Cathie will speak on the history of Building Physics, its role in successful BIM, some current issues in briefing and modelling, common disputes and most importantly in a HCNW seminar, about the future of Building Physics in a BIM-driven world.
Some regard Building Physics as the leading edge science employed by building services engineers, supported by the art of integrating technology to form a system and the craft of installing and maintaining those systems. One trajectory is for BIM to "virtualise" for more efficient pre-production and performance analysis, so how can Building Physics be integrated throughout the life of a building, how can its performance help analyse outcomes and develop new solutions ? How might building services engineers plan their future roles in connection with future development of Building Physics and libraries of analysis ?
Cathie has been a CIBSE Board Member and a Past-Vice-President of CIBSE, and so her continuing, direct engagement with HCNW and other Regions is appreciated.
In August 2016, HCNW Region announced its Inclusivity Policy

CIBSE HCNW Region takes great care to avoid wasted food. So if you do book through Eventbrite and realise you can't make it, please consider others who are less fortunate - please cancel your Eventbrite ticket (My Tickets, This Event, Cancel Order).
CIBSE HCNW EVENTS are arranged entirely by volunteers.
ANY QUESTIONS: Please read the details below. "Contact The Organiser" which is quickest (there's a link on this page) rather than CIBSE HQ, thank you.
PUSHKIN HOUSE is a charitable trust, it is non-political, it supports art and culture.
CIBSE IS A CHARITY. It supports the delivery of art and science to the wider public. So as policy, HCNW Region seeks out charity venues, not only to maximise the number of events the Region can run within its limited CIBSE grant, but also to pursue CIBSE's charitable objects - by supporting other charities serving wider society.
FUNDING: This event is fully-funded by CIBSE HCNW Region from its charitable grant, about £7 per HCNW Member, per year. The Region Committee does not organise social events.
PUBLIC TRANSPORT: Nearest tube, Holborn (Piccadilly and Central). Holborn is very well-connected for buses.
MOTORISTS: There is an underground car park under Bloomsbury Square.
ACCESS: If you require assistance with the stairs to the basement, please get in touch.
TERMS & CONDITIONS: Just to be clear, CIBSE HCNW and the premises reserve the right to refuse or withdraw admission and such a decision is final. Screens and audio are not cinema quality. Enjoyment of the event is subject to the limitations of the premises, speaker availability and our technical facilities executing what we intend them to do - technical performance is not guaranteed. CIBSE HCNW will not be liable for travel costs, parking charges, excess charges and fines, accommodation costs or the cost of any refreshments not provided at the event by CIBSE HCNW.
TICKETS & ADMISSION: Proof of membership* of CIBSE, or another body considered by CIBSE HCNW to be a Chartered or Licensed Body (eg. the IET, Energy Institute, etc) may be requested before being granted admission at the CIBSE Member rate.
The public are welcome but by paid ticket or the Region's hardship concession.
IMAGES: No images or recording please at this event. HCNW will not be capturing any images (apart from the speaker), without requesting agreement.
FOOD & REFRESHMENTS: 50/50 vegetarian/non-vegetarian, no other criteria. Please let us know if you have any special dietary requirements. To minimise waste, we under-order food, particularly for events starting later; so if you're hungry, arrive early. In London wine and soft drinks are served. Because of transport considerations, HCNW events outside London are alcohol-free.
REFUNDS: Requests for refunds must be submitted no later than 48 hours before the event starts. Members of the public joining up as a CIBSE Affiliate at or immediately after the event may be refunded on request.
BAGGAGE & POSSESSIONS: Please look after your possessions at all times. CIBSE HCNW and the venue cannot be held responsible for lost or missing items.
CANCELLATION: As with any event, this one is subject to cancellation. CIBSE HCNW will not be liable for travel costs, parking charges, excess charges and fines, accommodation costs or the cost of any refreshments not provided at the event by CIBSE HCNW. In the event of cancellation, CIBSE HCNW will refund deposits.
WAITLIST: Where an event is over-subscribed, CIBSE HCNW may add individual ticket requests to a Waitlist, or release tickets to individuals on the Waitlist in a priority order based upon previous booking and attendance patterns.
