Please note the start time 19:30
Helen Loomes of Trilux will explain the significance of circadian rhythms and their impacts on lighting design theory.
As our understanding of the human biological responses to lighting is increasing and gaining in acceptance, I will recap on the biology of light and its effect on our circadian rhythms. The approach goes beyond our standard way of designing, focusing only on lighting and energy efficiency criteria. It’s mainly about the effect of light on human well-being and health, and biologically effective light is a part of this.
Different applications will use this biological effect to different ends, the two most obvious ones being Education and Healthcare, but there is also the sector of our population who work shifts, subjecting themselves to a very unnatural way of life – can we use our new knowledge to help them ?

When & Where
CIBSE Home Counties North West Region
We are a regional branch of CIBSE, the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers - Registered Charity No: 278104.
CIBSE supports the art (including craft) and science of building services engineering.
HCNW supports CIBSE Members with technical seminars, visits and screenings, amenable networking building up local communities of practice broadly in Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, part of Surrey and part of London.
Events which are arranged by CIBSE HCNW are:
- Modern, public, freely open - and welcoming - to all*
- Freely published, accessible to the wider public by search engine*
- Always aligned to CIBSE's charitable objects
- Advertised to all and co-ordinated, months in advance
- Valuable for professional development - and tomorrow's projects
- Look at major societal issues in an uncertain world
- We also do the technology - the art (craft) as well as science
- And help develop "well-rounded engineers" and inform the public
- Our events are not dominated by industry or commercial impulse
- We are inclusive, diverse and positively welcome the general public
- Wide range of speakers and interesting debates - a HCNW speciality
- We offer incidental networking and a sociable environment
- HCNW is a way of feeding your ideas into CIBSE
HCNW is run by elected volunteers - in fact, engineers in a wide range of building services specialisms - and has well-established links with WiBSE - Women in Building Services Engineering, CIBSE-FM and the CIBSE-CHP DH Group, as well as IET Surrey and IET Buckinghamshire. Our audience is mixed and diverse.
Some of our events are invitation only and not publicly displayed, where circumstances or security require that attendees have to be registered with CIBSE or another institution.
HCNW events have long featured debate about the wider issues, which affect technical solutions and question established norms. In addition to seminars of technical interest in building services engineering, we have been looking ahead: Big Data, Cybersecurity, the Future of Institutions, Resource Efficiency and other emerging issues. The Region was the first to run wide-spectrum seminars on Inclusivity (diversity) and some unusual seminars on soft skills.
As policy, HCNW seeks to support charitable venues and charitable caterers wherever possible.
CIBSE Members - Identify with your Region
In 2015, HCNW launched the Region ties and the unisex HCNW pin badge, available to members of the Home Counties North West Region community.
Other Joint Events
Some additional events are advertised for Home Counties North West Region as joint events, which are worth looking out for.
The Region welcomes any joint events with associated groups, but the elected Region Committee is only responsible for the events and joint events shown on this Eventbrite platform. HCNW does not organise any social events, parties or galas, but our charitable events all involve networking in a convivial person-to-person community.
About our Eventbrite Platform
This Eventbrite page is operated entirely by volunteers in HCNW Region.
*Not all of our events are publicly displayed and a few are open to CIBSE Members only plus regular attendees.

Please note that if you choose to book a Conditional Ticket, HCNW cannot guarantee to get you into the event, but we will have estimated that there is a good chance for that particular event.
