Ecobuild 2014: Overcoming procurement challenges to close the performance gap - the M&E Engineer
Case Study of Keynsham Town Hall – delivering an A rated DEC from the outset with quantitative indicators, assured energy performance and Soft Landings - from the M&E Engineer's perspective: Tamsin Tweddell, Senior Engineer, Max Fordham
Buildings may not end up as originally intended by the design team as the scheme goes through the tendering, value engineering and construction journey. The effects on energy performance of changes to the design, product substitution and the quality of construction must be understood. This seminar will demonstrate how a robust approach to procurement and delivery ensures the finished building matches design intent. Approaches covered include Soft Landings, fixed quantitative indicators, client specifications and assured energy performance from contractors.
