CBx breakfast sessions are short, sharp discussions of cross-sector issues with recognised practitioners in the field. Speakers will come from aross the built lifecycle sector to provide industry, academia and government perspectives on each subject, helping to raise challenges and enable an open discussion around the solutions.
Our panel will discuss the benefits of an effective soft landings approach and the challenges of using the resulting information. We will learn about real case studies being delivered with ambitious targets both from the design consultant and the contractor perspective. This session will also investigate the need for culture change at every point in the procurement process so that value engineering, commissioning, training and familiarisation, aftercare budget support and facilities management are all given equal importance in the performance of a building. The consequences of this on constructors, maintainers and specialist contractors as well as designers with be considered.
CBx events provide cross-collaborative discussions, enabling members to gain inside knowledge and a unique understanding of how different sectors perceive barriers and solutions to specific energy performance issues. Each event includes breakfast, and time to network with peers, thought leaders and prospective clients.
