Event Details

Streetlighting - Design, Operation & Environmental Impacts

Speaker: Mary Rushton-Beales, Lighting Design House

ALAN (artificial light at night) - dividing us since the turn of the century...

An accidental spin-off of Mary's research into how natural and artificial light has affected human beings during evolution, she encountered reams of compelling research into ALAN'S effects on the ecosystem - as well as people !

Mary's lecture, commissioned by HCNW Region, summarises historical research and looks at current research, suggesting how we should act on it !

Start time 18:30

Organiser: Chris Jones 

Posted Rev.03 (Exclusivity): 17 January 2017. Updated 28 April 2017

Food, Wine and Networking afterwards - plus CIBSE HCNW Prizes

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 Region 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.

SWEDENBORG HOUSE is a Registered Charity (313111), it is non-political, it supports art and culture. The Swedenborg Society does not let space to religious or political groups.

CIBSE is a Registered Charity (278104). 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 organised and 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.

REGIONS: Regional events not only offer technical insight, but also provide a forum for novel, alternative and sometimes incisive or critical views from speakers, which do not necessarily represent the views of CIBSE (nor HCNW Region) nor the SLL.

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.

GENERAL PUBLIC: The public are welcome by paid ticket (when fees reach a threshold, the fund may be donated by HCNW Region to the CIBSE Benevolent Fund), or the Region's hardship concession, if eligible.

RECORDING - PRIOR PERMISSION REQUIRED: The organisers insist that any intention to record (audio or video) any part of the event is announced and that consent is obtained from all those attending. 

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.

Organiser

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
    • HCNW funds seminars for CIBSE Societies in the Region  
     
    • We offer incidental networking and a sociable environment
     
    • HCNW is a way of feeding your ideas into CIBSE 
 
 
 

 

Our Connections

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 Themes

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.

If you have any booking problems, please "Contact CIBSE Home Counties North West" rather than CIBSE HQ.

You'll find a link under the Terms and Conditions that makes it easy to reach us.

Security

In booking, for administrative and insurance reasons, you agree to join CIBSE HCNW's community as a "member" for the duration of the event.

Some events have security restrictions, please help make it easy by booking a ticket for each name, thank you.

Tickets

When all the firm tickets for an event are taken, HCNW offers Conditional Tickets because a proportion of firm ticketholders invariably drop out.

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.
