CIBSE Presidential Address

Peter Y Wong

BSc, LLB, LLM, FCIBSE, FHKIE, FIET, Chartered Engineer, R.P.E (Ell, Bss)
CIBSE President, 2017

This is a wonderful opportunity for local members in the Midlands to hear the new CIBSE President Peter Wong set out the principles that will guide him through his presidential year, and the key priorities he has in his time as CIBSE leader. In his inaugural CIBSE Presidential speech held at the Royal Society of Engineering in London, Peter posed a question: Is engineering art? He continued CIBSE think it IS art. “In our Charter, we say ‘we exist to support the Science, Art and Practice of building services engineering’.”

Peter is the first CIBSE President from the Hong Kong Branch and as such brings an international perspective to his talk and outlook: “Building Services Engineers are one of the most important professions for the future health of the planet, and the world is depending on what we do to ensure that we have healthy and productive places to live and work for generations”. His talk pledges to inspire the industry to embody the spirit and values of being a CIBSE member and to promote the positive message of the values we believe in, the professionalism we treasure and the aspiration of exchanging best practice among like minded professionals worldwide.
