FOREWORD

Welcome to the CIBSE Guide to Building Performance CIBSE is delighted to introduce this new Guide which reflects the increasing demand from building users for safe, healthy and efficient buildings which meet the needs of those who occupy them. This demand to demonstrate better building performance includes health and wellbeing as well as carbon, energy and waste reduction. The Guide is also designed to be a valuable source of information for companies and those responsible for the operation and maintenance of buildings to guide them through the complexities of complying with relevant regulation and legislation, including ESOS. The Guide will help to source the products and services that enable clients to operate their buildings efficiently and effectively. It will help them to meet the corporate social responsibility requirements and health and wellbeing standards demanded today by their stakeholders, staff and customers, and to comply with mandatory reporting requirements. The editorial content of this Guide is therefore aimed at client managers who are responsible for the operation and maintenance of buildings, including operations, facilities, maintenance and premises managers and also those responsible for investment in the sustainability of buildings. We have supplied links throughout the Guide for users to obtain additional information and hope, therefore, that this Guide will provide a useful service for all those who receive and use it. We would welcome feedback on how we can improve it further.

INTRODUCTION

Helping clients deliver Building Performance CIBSE Certification Ltd. is the wholly owned subsidiary of the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE), and its purpose is the operation of an independent certification body for the certification of personnel and management systems.

C

IBSE Certification is fully independent of CIBSE in terms of its governance, and has policies and procedures in place to ensure all aspects of its activities are carried out in an honest, impartial and unbiased manner that is fair and equitable for all applicants. This includes meeting all legislative and statutory requirements that affect the schemes. CIBSE Certification is accredited for a number of streams by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) for personnel certification and for management systems certification to ISO 50001 and 9001.

order to meet challenging energy, carbon and waste reduction targets in the built environment. It is equally important for building users to understand how to operate their buildings efficiently in order to facilitate energy awareness and good practice whilst ensuring optimum performance. CIBSE Certification certifies personnel that can provide a robust, impartial source of knowledge and guidance in the design and operation of energy-efficient buildings. They are widely recognised for their extensive experience in the sustainable building industry, and include:

• Low Carbon Consultants (LCCs), • Low Carbon Energy Assessors (LCEAs), • Energy Performance (EPC) and Display Energy Certificate (DEC) Assessors

• Air Conditioning Inspectors (ACIs), • ESOS Lead Assessors, • Heat Networks Consultants • Section 63 Advisors (in Scotland) We offer technical support, software support, entrance to CIBSE LCC, LCEA and ESOS Lead Assessor registers, on-going marketing of assessors and competitive rates for lodgements, along with international recognition and quality assurance.

Energy management systems Having obtained UKAS accreditation to certify Energy Management Systems against ISO 50001 in 2015 CIBSE Certification has now obtained UKAS accreditation for ISO 9001 accreditation and has applied for ISO 14001. ISO 50001 establishes a standard for operating an energy management system to help organisations improve their energy performance. This could help reduce energy costs and associated CO2 emissions. Energy management systems certified under UKAS accreditation is also one way to comply with the ESOS Regulations. The addition of ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 will allow CIBSE Certification to support organisations operating a system of integrated management systems for optimum business performance.

INTRODUCTION

Helping clients Essentially, CIBSE Certification helps clients to minimise the carbon footprint of their buildings and meet their corporate social responsibility aims by doing more than simply ‘counting carbon’. And becoming certified with CIBSE Certification gives industry practitioners a distinct advantage in a competitive market.

What are the legislation requirements? • Since 2008, every building that is constructed, sold or rented in the UK requires an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC). This provides an Asset Rating, along with A-G energy efficiency grade for the building. It gives prospective buyers or tenants useful information on energy efficiency and carbon emissions.

A DEC comes with an Advisory Report that details how the building could be operated most energy efficiently in its first year of operation. This must be updated every seven years and does not have to be displayed in the building.

What can a Low Carbon Consultant (LCC) do?

A DEC and Advisory Report have been required for public authority buildings over 500m2 since January 2013, and from July 2015, buildings over 250m2 were included. DECs for buildings of 250-1000m2 have a 10 year validity.

• Advise on energy efficiency and

• In 2016, The Scottish Government introduced the Assessment of Energy Performance of Non-Domestic Buildings (Scotland) Regulations 2016, which created the Section 63 Advisor role.

• An Air Conditioning Inspection Report • Buildings over 250m2 that are owned or operated by a public authority and used by the general public require a Display Energy Certificate (DEC). This shows the actual energy usage and carbon emissions of the building to inform visitors and raise awareness, and must be displayed in a prominent place. A DEC is required annually for every public building over 1000m2.

• Certify that a completed building meets the carbon emissions requirement of Part L conservation

• Advise on and design low carbon and renewable technologies

• Use passive design technologies to make best use of shade and natural ventilation

• Deliver information to ensure a building is managed effectively and that it maintains optimum performance after handover An LCC Energy Management System specialist can:

and Climate Change (DECC) published the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) Regulations 2014 to help the UK meet its requirements under Article 8 of the EU Energy Efficiency Directive. ESOS is a mandatory energy assessment scheme for organisations in the UK that are classified as large enterprises or are part of a large group enterprise. According to the government, the scheme will identify thousands of energy-saving initiatives in buildings, industrial activities and transportation, which could save organisations more than £31bn between 2015-2030 if all recommendations in the ESOS reports are carried out.

The CIBSE Low Carbon Consultant (LCC) CIBSE LCCs are recognised industry experts that help reduce the energy costs and carbon emissions of buildings by looking at their current and future performance. Once the relevant LCC assessment has been passed, certified candidates can join the CIBSE LCC Register for Design, Operation, Simulation or Energy Management Systems.

WWW.CIBSE.ORG

An LCC design specialist can:

Energy Management System in conformity with ISO 50001 An LCC building operation specialist can:

• Reduce a building’s energy costs energy efficiency improvements to an existing building

• Incorporate low carbon and renewable technologies

• Advise on how to develop a corporate social responsibility agenda An LCC simulation specialist can:

• Ensure accurate and complete carbon emissions calculations for compliance with Criterion 1 ADL2A

• Provide the necessary calculations for developing an EPC

CIBSE ESOS Lead Assessor ESOS regulations require that ESOS Lead Assessors are sourced from approved existing schemes run by professional bodies, such as the CIBSE Low Carbon Consultants Register. All CIBSE ESOS Lead Assessor applicants must therefore be registered as a CIBSE LCC. ■ To learn more about CIBSE Certification or find an Assessor, Consultant or Inspector on our Online Register, please visit: www.cibsecertification.co.uk

ESOS

Guide to the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) On 26 June 2014, the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC), now incorporated with BEIS, published the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) Regulations 2014 to help meet the UK’s requirements under Article 8 of the EU Energy Efficiency Directive.

ESOS participants must:

SOS is an energy assessment scheme that is mandatory for organisations in the UK that are classified as large enterprises or are part of a large group enterprise (follow the flow chart to the right to identify if your organisation qualifies). According to the government, the scheme will identify thousands of energy- saving initiatives in buildings, industrial activities, and transportation, which could save organisations more than ÂŁ31bn between 2015 and 2030 if all the recommendations in the ESOS reports are carried out.

What do organisations need to do to comply with ESOS? The scheme requires qualifying organisations to undertake assessments looking at energy use and energy efficiency opportunities across the whole business at least once every four years.

| CIBSE GUIDE TO BUILDING PERFORMANCE 2019

1

Measure total energy consumption Measure total energy consumption across buildings, transport and industrial activities.

2

Conduct energy audits to identify costeffective energy efficiency recommendations Ensuring that at least 90% of total energy consumption is covered by an ESOS compliant energy audit, a Display Energy Certificate, a Green Deal Assessment, or that 100% of energy use has a certified ISO 50001 Energy Management System.


ESOS

Unless total energy consumption is covered by a certified ISO 50001 Energy Management System, organisations must ensure that its ESOS Assessement is conducted or reviewed by a qualified Lead Assessor.

3

Report compliance to the Environment Agency Notify the Environment Agency (as the scheme administrator) that they have complied with the scheme by 5 December 2019. Important to note: The ESOS report has to be signed off by a board member of the organisation being audited and approved by a Lead Assessor. There is no legal obligation for organisations to carry out the report’s recommendations. However, CIBSE advises that organisations entering this process with the intention of acting on recommendations with a sound economic case, will get far more out of the exercise than simply legal compliance. The money saved by acting should, in most cases, cover the cost of compliance. The scheme compliance bodies* will have the authority to apply civil penalties against an organisation found to be required to participate in ESOS and be non-compliant. *Environment Agency in England, Natural Resources Wales, Northern Ireland Environment Agency, The Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA)

Timetable: Phase 2 The first compliance deadline was 5 December 2015. The second compliance phase lasts from 6 December 2015 to 5 December 2019 and the qualification date for eligible organizations is 31 December 2018. Important to note: The data used for ESOS Energy Audits must: • Cover a period of 12 consecutive months data on energy use

• Begin no earlier than 12 months before commencement of the compliance phase (i.e. 6 December 2014)

• Begin no earlier

CIBSE’s major focus is on the energy performance of buildings and CIBSE Certification Ltd was one of the first professional bodies to be approved by the Environment Agency to operate a register of ESOS Lead Assessors. CIBSE Certification can also provide assessors with experience in other sectors (industrial activities and transportation) which means you can find a suitable ESOS Lead Assessor whatever your energy mix.

“ESOS is an energy assessment scheme that is mandatory for organisations in the UK that are classified as large enterprises or are part of a large group enterprise.

Specifying and installing system solutions is like everything else in life. For great results, all you need to do is follow good practice. That’s why, in project after project, time after time, Geberit Mapress Carbon Steel is resistant to degradation and a cost effective solution of choice. Quick and easy to install, with no hot works or costly one-hour cooling down period, our precision pipe fitting solutions offer leak-free, hassle-free performance, with a long system life.


GEBERIT MAPRESS CARBON STEEL

AVOIDING ACCELERATED CORROSION OF CARBON STEEL PIPES When the price of copper reached an all-time high in 2011, it signaled a shift within the industry towards precision carbon steel pipework. Durable, proven over many years and more cost-effective than stainless steel and copper (subject to copper prices), it also offers the added benefits of press-fit installation. Like any material, however, precision carbon steel comes with its own considerations. It is only suitable for specific applications,

WHY SWITCHING IS NOT THE SOLUTION

COMMISS • NING • I AN

T GE • P T L RA

It should not be installed outside buildings without adequate protection, in open systems or with excessive water treatment – all of which were reportedly evident when carbon steel sales grew faster than application and design knowledge in the post-recession period of economic activity.

GOOD PRACTICE GUIDELINES To help overcome this issue, Geberit has launched a new white paper focusing on how to prevent excessive corrosion of carbon steel pipes. One thing is clear; where corrosion of precision carbon steel has been detected, the tube is not the cause of failure. If there is significant corrosion, then the system, installation or usage of that pipework is not correct.

NG • I N NI S O AINTENA M

For some contractors and installers, particularly since the sharp 2016 fall in copper prices, switching materials has been perceived as the easiest and most convenient way to address any potential corrosion issues. However, basic corrosion science highlights a significant flaw with this approach.

namely in closed water systems - where dissolved oxygen levels are lower than open systems - with closed expansion tanks and appropriate de-aeration where required.

In fact, switching material to stainless steel, or other tubes which meet the obsolete British Standard that most people know as BS 1387:1985, will only move the problem within a system of mixed pipework materials.

Download Geberit’s white paper: Best practice guidelines to eliminate the corrosion of precision carbon steel, for free at www.geberitmakeitright.com

THERE ARE SIX SIMPLE STEPS TO GOOD PRACTICE: 1. PLANNING:

5. TESTING:

Systems should be designed as a closed system with a closed expansion tank and the ability to purge any air – and look out for continuous under or over pressure in the system.

Should be completed with compressed air where feasible but if performing a pressure test with water, the recommended water quality should be used and the system should be left filled where possible. Once installed, fill the system once with the required water quality for commissioning and leave it filled. Completely remove air from the system and do not empty commissioned systems again.

2. TRANSPORT: Use a closed or well covered means of transportation to reduce the risk of moisture reaching the material.

3. STORAGE: Ensure you store pipes and fittings in a dry environment, preferably not on the floor. Carbon steel can be stored in contact with other materials in dry conditions but if there is a chance of moisture during storage, contact with other metals should be avoided.

6. MAINTENANCE: If you must empty an already running system, refill as quickly as possible – within 24 hours at most. It is also important to maintain an effective and ongoing water monitoring programme too.

4. INSTALLATION: Follow the plan; install pipework in accordance with specifications and apply insulation and coatings as stated.

“Precision carbon steel is durable and cost effective, but system design must be taken into account to reduce the risk of corrosion (as with any metal pipes). By following best practice guidelines, and being mindful of everything else that is in the system, contractors can reduce the risk of corrosion and protect the system and the wider project.”

ENERGY PERFORMANCE

Energy Performance Certificates for commercial buildings An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) is required for every commercial building when it is constructed, sold or let. This certificate gives information about the energy efficiency of the building to owners, prospective buyers and tenants.

E

PCs are produced using standard methods and assumptions about energy use to enable the energy efficiency of buildings of the same type to be compared. They are valid for ten years but must be renewed if modifications to the property are made.

An EPC sets out the energy efficiency grade of a commercial building. EPCs are required when a commercial building over 50m2 is built, sold or rented. There are two grades of buildings under the EPC requirements which relate to the complexity of the building being assessed and will affect the type of EPC assessor you will need.

• A simple building is one having “frequently occurring characteristics” such as simple heating systems, simple natural ventilation and small comfort cooling systems - those which are very similar to domestic premises in the fabric and services present, such as a block of shops with flats above them. These buildings are commonly going to be assessed by a Level 3 assessor using SBEM but they can also be assessed by a Level 4 assessor using SBEM or even a Level 5 assessor using DSM.

• A complex building is one having advanced features which can be calculated using SBEM or DSM by a Level 4 or 5 assessor respectively. A Level 4 assessor using SBEM is expected to have experience of buildings in the commercial sector, which may have both fabric and services installations that are not found in domestic buildings, i.e. any HVAC systems. A Level 5 assessor using DSM is expected to have experience of buildings in the commercial sector, which may have both fabric and services installations that are uncommon for which the asset rating is best measured using dynamic simulation.

| CIBSE GUIDE TO BUILDING PERFORMANCE 2019

What an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) contains The EPC has two parts - a graphic rating and a recommendations report. The rating is calculated on the performance of the building and its building services (such as heating, lighting, air conditioning), rather than the appliances within it. This is known as an asset rating - that is, how energy efficient the building has been designed and modified.

The certificate also gives an indicator of the potential rating of the building if all the cost-effective measures suggested in the recommendations are carried out. A building’s rating will vary depending on the age, location, size and condition of the building, which are taken into account.


ENERGY PERFORMANCE

“EPCs are produced using standard methods and assumptions about energy use to enable the energy efficiency of buildings of the same type to be compared. They are valid for ten years but must be renewed if modifications to the property are made.” To produce an EPC the assessor will need information on the following:

• • • • • • • • • • • •

The size of the building and the different activity areas within it

Insulation levels in the building The systems providing heat to your building How fresh air moved around the building What keeps the building cool

How hot water is provided to bathrooms and kitchens Building management systems or controls

Electricity feed for the building Lighting systems for the building Presence of onsite energy generation How the building is used and by whom The more complete the information on these areas the more accurate the rating and recommendations are likely to be.

If you need an Energy Performance Certificate for your building, CIBSE certified Low Carbon Energy Assessors (LCEAs) can provide one. CIBSE certified Low Carbon Energy Assessors (LCEAs) have undertaken additional training so that, not only are they able to provide you with an energy performance certificate, they can also provide tailored advice to help you cut the energy costs and carbon emissions in your buildings. CIBSE certified LCEAs are not necessarily members of the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE). Energy Performance Certificates must be produced by a certified EPC energy assessor. To find a CIBSE Certification certified EPC energy assessor in your area search our Register of Low Carbon Energy Assessors.

Useful Energy Performance Certificate Documents Further information on EPCs can be found in the downloadable documents below:

• A Guide to Energy Performance Certificates for the Construction, Sale and Let of Non-dwellings (MHCLG)

HEATING SYSTEMS

Wellbeing in building design & operation During the last decade the industry has quickly evolved to tackle climate change, energy and carbon reduction - this mindset is now established and engrained as ‘part of the day job’ for building designers and operators.

“Internal environments which are thermally comfortable all year round, flooded with fresh air and making the best possible use of natural light will inevitably produce a greater sense of wellbeing and improve our experiences.” 16

| CIBSE GUIDE TO BUILDING PERFORMANCE 2019

T

he WELL Building Standard is the first of its kind to focus on strategies to support environments designed to enhance health and wellbeing. The standard targets our main body systems which enable humans to live, learn and work, grouped into 10 main concepts (Air, Water, Nourishment, Light, Movement, Thermal comfort, Sound, Material, Mind and Community) The benefits of each intervention are evidenced by a solid body of scientific work designed to have a small positive impact on our human experiences. The recent release of v2 of the standard offers the perfect opportunity to get on board with the WELL movement and really make positive changes to the buildings we occupy with alternative schemes such as FITWEL and the BCO Wellness Roadmap for Offices offering different pathways to achieving the same outcome – better buildings for us all.

Whichever route you choose, full or partial assessment, ‘in principle’ measures incorporated into new projects or refurbishments; this will certainly be a differentiator for your organisation, helping attract and retain happy and productive staff. Businesses typically spend up to 90% of their overhead costs on salaries and benefits, around 9% for rent & operations and 1% for energy. It therefore follows that the space we create for employees should be focused on getting the best out of the people we invest in. As building designers and operators, we can influence human environments for the better through the adoption of WELL concepts – for example, the Mind concept not only looks to support mental health (which affects 30% of adults during their lifetime & costs the global economy an estimated $1tn annually) but also seeks to create a positive environment by offering access to nature and advice on strategies to enhance a positive state of mind. The concept also looks at support programs to discuss mental health relating to sleep, stress and substance use. A theme running through the Movement concept is the promotion of activity at work with the introduction of active furnishings, improved ergonomics and alternative breakout areas. Using stairways, offering fitness classes and encouraging active commutes via walking running and cycling are all enhancing fitness and activity - the increased interactions this brings with fellow workers will also foster a sense of community and team spirit. Internal environments which are thermally comfortable all year round, flooded with fresh air and making the best possible use of natural light will inevitably produce a greater sense of wellbeing and improve our experiences. Building designers, Architects, MEP Engineers, Building Physicists and Lighting Designers all play a pivotal role in getting it right on the drawing board, but will space churn and layout changes have potential unintended consequences for the users? Maintaining a WELL certification will involve continuous monitoring and validation of these key indicators to ensure building performance right through the lifecycle. In summary, the wellbeing movement continues to stir up considerable interest amongst building professionals - we firmly believe that adoption of the principles for the next generation of building design can only have positive impacts for us all. ■

The Importance of Post Occupancy Monitoring As the old adage goes, “no news is good news.” But is this the case when it comes to building construction?

This begs the question: is the industry designing buildings around regulations, or around end-users; and is there a difference? As part of service agreements many companies demand that contractors carry out site inspections a few months after completion to see if there are any issues, however this is still not the industry norm. Considerations such as BREEAM, Soft Landings and The Well Standard insist on more input from the end user, but until these are a standard through the construction industry, we will never truly be able to monitor wellbeing of a building’s occupants. ■

HEATING SYSTEMS

Creating comfort By Carl Davison, Technical Services Manager, Kingspan Industrial Insulation

The heatwave we experienced this summer is a sign of things to come according to the Met Office. Their most recent projections suggest that summer periods of extremely high temperatures could become ‘fairly normal’ by 2040. It is therefore important that building service specifiers fully consider the risk of overheating and look to mitigate it.

R

ecent research from AECOM has suggested that the simple step of installing an enhanced specification of insulation and insulated supports on pipework in communal areas can help reduce overheating.

AECOM Research The minimum insulation requirements for hot water and heating systems are contained within the Domestic and Non-domestic Building Service Compliance Guides. For optimal system efficiency, however, the Energy Technology List (ETL) recommends a higher performance pipe insulation specification based on NES Y50 Enhanced levels. To investigate how different pipe insulation specifications can affect overheating and system performance, AECOM carried out a detailed evaluation using IES dynamic thermal modelling. The research assessed the performance of three insulation systems on LTHW (Low Temperature Hot Water) and DHW (Domestic Hot Water) pipework within a multiunit residential extra-care building with a constant circulation of hot water. The modelled specifications were: Option A – Man Made Mineral Fibre (MMMF) Pipe insulation specified to BS 5422: 2009 with rubber lined pipe support brackets. Option B – Premium phenolic pipe insulation specified to minimum standards within BS 5422: 2009 with phenolic insulation pipe support inserts. Option C – Premium phenolic pipe insulation to the enhanced ETL specification with phenolic insulation pipe support inserts. The study also considered the use of extraction fans to dissipate heat.

20

| CIBSE GUIDE TO BUILDING PERFORMANCE 2019

AECOM carried out detailed IES dynamic thermal modelling using an extra-care housing case study building.

Results To evaluate the impact of each specification on overheating, AECOM calculated the percentage of hours with a dry resultant temperature of greater than 25°C and 28°C. The results showed that, when compared with the MMMF system, the BS 5422 phenolic specification provided a reduction of up to 15% in overheating hours at a room temperature greater than 28°C and 9% at a room temperature greater than 25°C. The ETL specification offered further benefits with falls of up to 32% in overheating hours greater than 28°C and 25% in overheating hours over 25°C.

The research showed that an ETL specification of premium performance phenolic insulation and insulated pipe supports, such as those within the Kingspan Kooltherm Complete Pipe Insulation System, can reduce overheating and cut energy usage. (Image Courtesy EIC)

In some scenarios, the modelling showed that rooms with the MMMF specification would have experienced over 100 additional hours at temperatures above 28ºC when compared to the ETL specification. These reductions also produced considerable energy cost savings. The projected average energy cost of the MMMF specification was calculated at £3,973, rising to £4,105 when the impact of additional extraction fans was considered. The BS 5422 phenolic specification achieved annual savings of £431 or £463 depending on whether the impact of extraction fans was taken into account. With the ETL phenolic specification even greater savings of £1,252 and £1,384 could be achieved. Finally, the study showed that when the extract fans were considered, the ETL specification would have an immediate payback. As with all products on the ETL, it is also supported under the Enhanced Capital Allowances Scheme, enabling businesses to write-off the whole cost of investment in energy saving equipment against their taxable profits for the period during which they make the investment.

Future Proofed Whether you’re designing services for a new or existing building, its important to properly address the potential for overheating. The use of an ETL specification of pipe insulation and insulated supports is one simple way to achieve this whilst also improving the performance and cost efficiency of services. ■ For more information, please contact: Tel: +44 (0) 1544 388 601 E-mail: info@kingspaninsulation.co.uk www.kingspanindustrialinsulation.com

HEATING SYSTEMS

Altecnic Ensures Energy Efficient District Heating System for New London Apartments A new apartment block that has been converted from offices will benefit from an energy efficient district heating system thanks to 183 Heat Interface Units (HIUs) and more than 800 dynamic thermostatic radiator valves (TRVs) from Altecnic.

M

&E contractors G&H Group worked closely with Altecnic to develop the specification for Carolyn House following its change of use from offices to an apartment block. The specification and correct installation of the central heating system will save future residents money and also ensure that every apartment has a reliable source of hot water and heating, even at times of peak demand. David Davis, Group Director for G&H, says “District heating systems such as this are becoming more common and we were keen to work closely with a manufacturer who not only supplies product but also provides technical advice and training so that we could provide an efficient and reliable solution.” Achieving maximum efficiency from such a system relies on the HIU in each apartment returning a very low temperature back onto the network. This keeps primary flow rates low, reduces heat lost from the system, ensures the greatest benefit from any included renewable energy sources and allows condensing boilers to work at their optimum efficiency.

The low heating demand in modern apartments means that only a very small flow rate of hot water is required on the space heating circuit. This low flow rate makes it difficult to balance the radiators, so there is a danger of a high space heating return temperature being passed back onto the network. This reduces the efficiency of the whole network. Working closely with Altecnic, G&H maximised the difference in temperature between the flow and return temperatures (Delta T) on each apartment’s space heating circuits. First using the DYNAMICAL® TRVs from Altecnic, it is possible to preset the maximum allowable flow rate for each radiator on the DYNAMICAL® valve before installation. Once installed, the valve finely controls the flow rate of water through each radiator regardless of changes in pressure on the space heating circuit. This ensures that the required flow is never exceeded, the maximum heat output from the radiator is maximised and the subsequent return temperature to the HIU is kept low.

“Well designed heat networks, pre-settable dynamic radiator valves and RTL within HIU’s will result in more efficient networks and greatly reduce the potential for overly warm corridors during the warmer months.”

22

| CIBSE GUIDE TO BUILDING PERFORMANCE 2019

Second the SATK32103 HIUs are equipped with Return Temperature Limitation (RTL). This allows a maximum return temperature back onto the network to be set. Once enabled and set, the HIU will control its output into the apartment to ensure that the pre-set primary return temperature is met. Not only does this mean that each apartment is efficiently heated for minimum cost to each resident, but it ensures that the overall network is efficient and protected from failure due to small Delta T’s and high primary flow rates. The lower return temperature also means that the heat network size can be reduced and a lot less energy is lost into the building fabric. Well designed heat networks, pre-settable dynamic radiator valves and RTL within HIU’s will result in more efficient networks and greatly reduce the potential for overly warm corridors during the warmer months. Davis continues, “I know that other contractors have had problems with district heating systems in the past due to the nature of commissioning such systems. We wanted to partner with a supplier that could work with us to develop the specification and provide product and training to ensure that the scheme is successfully commissioned. Every resident in this apartment block will get heating and hot water on demand even at times of peak usage, such as on a Monday morning before people go to work. “Altecnic’s HIUs and TRVs and their level of technical advice and assistance have been invaluable in this very successful project.” ■ For more information, please visit www.altecnic.co.uk

Like all Ideal boiler systems, costing the specified products was straightforward, with the merchant able to assist in the specification process.”

Why was Evomod right for this project?

I

nstalled by engineering support services specialist, Marmac, this project marks an iconic installation of the manufacturer’s highly efficient, space-saving Evomod commercial heating solution. Forming an integral part of an £18.2million Jewish and Catholic joint faith school campus, Ideal Commercial Boilers was selected from a tender panel of manufacturers to provide a high output product capable of delivering 750kW of energy in an unusually small footprint. Comprised of stackable modules each offering a 250Kw output, the Evomod is a scalable commercial heating solution which can be increased to meet specifications of up to 1000kW. This flagship facility is a world first in multi-faith education, replacing an existing Jewish school and providing an additional primary school provision for the local Catholic community. Now complete, the building boasts a shared amphitheatre and outdoor obstacle trails, as well as sports pitches, first-class ICT facilities, modern teaching spaces, an impressive library and state of the art science laboratories. The build was completed by a 90-strong daily workforce and took nine months to

complete. Ideal Commercial Boilers’ Senior Business Development Manager for Scotland, Charlie Newell, comments on the success of the project: “This project is one we’re extremely proud to be part of. Given the heating requirements of the building and the limited square footage of the plant room, the Evomod was the perfect specification choice for this building design. “We are confident that the school will benefit from optimised energy efficiency and zone-by-zone heating comfort, with minimal maintenance required.” Boasting a stainless-steel heat exchanger, the Evomod boiler installed uses a combined flue header for all three modules, complete with flow return pipework for quick installation. Chris McCall, Operations Director for Marmac Services, adds: “Working closely with main contractor Heron Bros we were able to install the Evomod system quickly and efficiently, with no

Modulation prevents the inefficiencies of on/ off cycling by matching the output power to the thermal load of the system. Optimum efficiency and reliability were important considerations in the specification of plant for this building, given that downtime would result in lost educational provision for hundreds of children. Being a modular boiler, Evomod allows the new school to benefit from the best of both worlds. Evomod is capable of achieving a modulation rate of 5:1 per module installed, allowing each module to modulate up until the demand requires output from a further unit, and so on until the demand is met. Work is shared equally between the units in operation, meaning each module can operate at its optimum efficiency. In the unlikely event of one of the modules failing, the system will remain in operation, allowing for continuation of supply. ■ For the video case study or more information on Evomod from Ideal Commercial Boilers, visit www.idealcommercialboilers.com

This category includes systems where air distributed through a centralised ducted system may also be cooled at terminal devices in the conditioned spaces. • Centralised cooled water systems: cooled water is produced centrally and distributed to terminal devices in the conditioned spaces. Terminal units may transfer cooling to re-circulated room air, to fresh air drawn locally from outdoors, or to air supplied through centralized ducted systems. • Water loop/reversible heat pump systems: systems with individual reversible water to air heat pumps in the treated space that draw or return heat from or to a common temperature controlled water loop. Excess heat in the water loop is dissipated as necessary by a cooling tower (often a dry cooler), and heat in the loop provided by a central heat generator (fossil fuel boiler, electric flow boiler, or other central heat exchanger). • Additional systems: some areas may be served by packaged, split and multi-split packaged comfort cooling equipment, including variable refrigerant flow (VRF) equipment, in addition to a centralized system.

INSTALLATION, OPERATION & MAINTENANCE SERVICES

Preventing corrosion by continuous monitoring Corrosion is the invisible enemy of water systems. It has few visible symptoms but its consequences are costly in both time and money. Building owners tend to rely on sporadic sampling tests, or only react once the system has failed. It’s time to look at advancements in technology and implement methods of prevention, rather than cure, to avoid the expense and inconvenience of corrosion.

H

eating technology is advancing all the time. Pumps and boilers are becoming smaller and more efficient. New materials are introduced and applied to components such as pipework and fittings, as well as heat exchangers and valves. In general, these advances can be seen as a positive. They make systems more energy efficient and allow more space for offices or living accommodation. Yet no progress comes without down sides or without the need to adapt. We must then question whether systems are still as reliable as they used to be, whether they last as long, and if they need more or less maintenance. Progress means that systems and their components are becoming increasingly more complex, yet skill levels in the industry are dropping. As a result, systems often don’t operate anywhere near their designed efficiency. They suffer frequent breakdowns and, like modern cars, can only be fixed by experts. One thing is certain, modern heating and cooling systems need high quality, clean water as a means to transfer energy efficiently. Even relatively small amounts of dirt or sludge can cause costly breakdowns. It is then no coincidence that dirt separators of all kinds have proliferated in recent years. Whether fine mesh or bag filters, in line, side stream or with magnets, they are all designed to do one thing – keep the water clean. Insurance companies have been seeing a massive increase in claims for water loss and boiler and pump manufacturers have been receiving more and more warranty claims. Most, if not all, of these issues can be traced back to corrosion problems. Corrosion is

often not recognised as the cause for system problems, which leads to people fighting the visible symptoms and not the cause. Even if it is recognised to be corrosion, the response is all too often a chemical one, which still fails to tackle the underlying cause. By the time the problems have become visible, through failing components or blockages, costs will be spiralling. What is needed is an early warning system – something that will send a warning if corrosion levels are increasing to the point where it is damaging the system. Traditional methods of testing for corrosion are the use of corrosion coupons or analysis of water samples. A key problem with these methods is that they only give an indication as to what the current state of the water is. The real problem is that they rarely get done at all. Wouldn’t it make sense, therefore, to have an online system that continuously measures corrosion rates, without the need for coupons or samples? Until recently, equipment to measure corrosion, such as the LPR method, was prohibitively expensive for HVAC systems. Indirect measurements, such as pH or

conductivity, have been possible for some time, but require specific expertise in order to evaluate the results. Fortunately, like heating technology, sensor technology has advanced rapidly and a number of affordable corrosion monitoring systems are now available. These systems can be split into 2 categories: direct and indirect measurement. The indirect systems measure water quality parameters such as pH and conductivity, whereas the direct monitors measure corrosion directly, using a single sensor, and are therefore much more cost effective. The patented Risycor uses an electronic version of the proven coupon method. The advantage of this direct method is that only one type of sensor is required. A major advantage of monitoring systems is that they don’t just measure, but also record corrosion levels during the lifetime of the plant. Most of these systems also have the ability to send an alarm when corrosion rates exceed safe levels, or even have remote viewing functions.

These alarms give operators and FM companies plenty of time to check, locate and remedy the causes of the increased corrosion levels before they do any costly damage to the system. This goes even for systems with precision carbon steel pipework for which corrosion monitoring is a must ….for routine maintenance and correcting simpler problems a smart system could definitely have its advantages’. ■ For more detailed information about preventing corrosion by continuous monitoring, contact Gordon Pringle of HASL and ask for the CIBSE approved CPD.

DISPLAY ENERGY CERTIFICATES

Display Energy Certificates for public buildings Since January 2013 Display Energy Certificates (DECs) need to be prominently displayed in buildings over 500m2 that are occupied by public authorities or institutions providing a public service. DECs for buildings over 500m2 - 1000m2 have a 10 year validity. Some newer buildings will have this information to hand, especially if the facilities managers have been maintaining a log book or operations and maintenance manuals (O&M); but often this information will need to be collected from a variety of documents held with separate departments within the organisation.

How could your business benefit from a CIBSE certified Energy Assessor? CIBSE Low Carbon Energy Assessors (LCEAs) are trained not only to provide you with a display energy certificate but to go further, to provide tailored advice to help you cut the energy costs and carbon emissions in your buildings. The operational rating on a DEC illustrates how efficiently the building is using energy. To calculate this rating a Low Carbon Energy Assessor will require information on the:

• type of building under assessment. • total floor area of the building.

Does your building need a DEC?

• annual energy use of the building

A DEC is required annually for public buildings and those occupied by public authorities which have a total useful area greater than 500m2 and provide a public service to a large number of people and are therefore frequently visited by those people. The display energy certificate has been a requirement since 1 October 2008 and shows the actual energy usage of a building. For more detailed information on DECs see the useful documents section below.

• methods used to heat and cool the building.

DECs rate the actual or operational energy performance of a building against established benchmarks and take into consideration the ways in which occupants use the building.

(gas and electricity).

In addition, to ensure the accompanying Advisory Report provided by your Low Carbon Energy Assessors (LCEA) will provide relevant guidance to assist you in improving your Operational Rating in subsequent years, s/he will benefit from the following additional information:

• How the heating and cooling is controlled. • The use and method for heating/cooling water in the building.

• Type of lighting used in the building. • Any onsite energy generation (renewable, etc).

CIBSE LCEAs are trained and certified to provide a high quality professional service. Our Energy Assessors are at the forefront of the market because they hold the knowledge to make your building more energy efficient.

INDOOR AIR QUALITY

A certified step towards sustainability According to the EU, buildings are responsible for 40% of all energy consumption in member states. Ventilation is one important contributing factor and in any building, whether it be a school, a commercial property or a private house, the ventilation system constitutes approximately 30% of the total energy consumption.

Certification – a push for the entire ventilation industry The Lindab Safe circular duct system has been certified for strength and leakage according to the toughest tightness class D by Eurovent. Lindab is the first company in Europe to receive such a certificate for a duct system from the renowned organisation. “The certification is a milestone that will hopefully raise the overall standard of production in the ventilation industry”, says Torbjörn Bruzelius, Strategic Product Manager for Lindab Group. The certification is a reminder that highstandard ventilation solutions are a necessity in our efforts to reduce energy consumption and minimise strain on the environment.

Durable gaskets Lindab Safe uses a gasket made from temperature resistant and durable EPDM rubber which is fixed without tension, this means that the aging of the rubber is much slower and the gasket has good ability to maintain its sealing function and airtightness after many years in operation.

Bigger gaskets for bigger ducts

V

entilation requires energy to work but poorly functioning systems often lead to unnecessarily high consumption. Duct systems that have not been assembled in a correct manner or components that do not fit are recurring problems that result in air leakage and high costs. The obvious way to minimise wasteful consumption is to develop air-tight ventilation systems.

The highest standard of airtightness Airtightness classification stretches from A to D where every step represents airtightness that is three times better than the former. Ventilation manufacturer Lindab believe that a minimum standard of class C should be accepted and they insist that the Lindab Safe circular duct system meets the highest standard of airtightness, what we refer to as class D, however Lindab want to do more to raise the standards in the industry.

Most European standards allow a greater tolerance range between the duct and matching fittings as the diameter increases. In order to achieve maximum sealing for all dimensions Lindab use successively bigger gasket lips as duct dimensions increase. This is one reason why they can guarantee the same tightness class D in all dimensions.

‘Pressure-proof’ Ventilation systems should be able to withstand positive and negative pressures within the tightness class. When it comes to high negative pressures, it is important to be confident that duct will not collapse. Ducts can be further supported with external flanges.

All products have airtightness in mind Pressed fittings with no spot welding used in production reduces potential leak and failure points. Female fittings with rolled edges makes fittings more rigid, of tighter tolerance and easier to install and also maintains tightness across the system. It is important that more technical products like silencers, dampers and measuring units are air tight. Lindab ensures products are recommended for tightness class C or class D. ■ For more information about Lindab Safe, contact: sales@lindab.co.uk

INDOOR AIR QUALITY

Is there a WISE way to deliver a quality indoor climate? Buildings can be greener if smart technologies are integrated into the design of HVAC systems with exciting implications for improving energy efficiency and comfort, explains Robin Vollert*.

T

he current global market for ‘smart building systems’ was estimated at around £5bn in 2017 but is expected to grow to beyond £30bn by 2022. That means this sector is outstripping any other part of construction by some distance. Buildings are responsible for around 40% of global energy consumption with HVAC systems the biggest contributor, with climate, location, insulation levels etc. determining energy usage. Digital technologies allow building services designers more control over how a building will perform. Connectivity is the crucial change that allows designers to more closely match the performance of heating, cooling and ventilation systems to user demand. The availability of wireless networks means systems can be

more easily configured, commissioned and controlled. They also give engineers a route to tackling the individual pieces of equipment that consume the most energy, such as fans and chillers. Using demand control in ventilation can reduce the amount of fan energy used by as much as 80% and the energy saving for cooling and heating can be up to 40%. This is because air, cooling and heating are supplied in just the right amounts, at the right places and at the right time based on the user’s demand patterns, cutting out unnecessary operating time.

Intelligence and Simplicity

| CIBSE GUIDE TO BUILDING PERFORMANCE 2019

As well as a general lack of hard wiring throughout the network, the batteries that provide power to the individual sensors in each piece of equipment have an operating life of 10 years. The simple commission approach radically reduces the time needed to install, set up and commission the system and cuts out many potential areas where faults can occur. It also means it is much easier to reconfigure the system when changes are made to room layouts or usage patterns. We continue to add individual system components to the WISE network and have recently produced new WISE versions of our supply air diffusers, which are capable of adjusting the airflow as needed and optimising the throw of the air, even at low flow rates. This ensures a good indoor climate, with good mixing of the room air, without the risk of disrupting the occupied zone. Being able to deploy the very latest in wireless technology underpinning a robust and reliable communication network opens up all sorts of possibilities for building services systems. The WISE network is already in use in over 100 projects worldwide – including a project in Stockholm that achieved a BREEAM ‘outstanding’ rating and is now in UK buildings. ■

“WISE takes demand controlled ventilation to a new level by applying the technology across complete climate control system for entire buildings seamlessly.”

Swegon have recently made a breakthrough in wireless technology to create a fully digital, complete system solution for building ventilation, heating and cooling control. The WISE demand controlled indoor climate system is designed to be simple and reliable. The wireless installation is commissioned without communication cabling, which reduces time, cost and complexity. WISE takes demand controlled ventilation to a new level by applying the technology across complete climate control systems for entire buildings seamlessly. Communicating via wireless signal, if there is a break in the signal, the network simply reroutes the messages via a different route so there is no drop in the system’s performance.

FACILITIES MANAGEMENT

Everything FMs need to know CIBSE Guide M: Maintenance Engineering & Management is the guide for facilities managers, designers, maintainers, building owners and operators bringing together everything facilities managers (FMs) and designers need to know about maintaining and operating buildings in one authoritative publication.

B

uilding services engineers provide the internal environmental conditions that enable business processes to function at an optimum level while providing a safe, comfortable environment for occupants to achieve their maximum performance potential. Effective maintenance and operation is a key factor in ensuring this continues for the life of the building. Pressures on the supply, security and cost of energy are putting greater pressure on the FM industry to deliver energy efficiency. Current UK legislative requirements, such as the Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES), and the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) are aimed at maximising the benefits and minimising the downsides of the energy impacts of a business. Nick Mead, then CIBSE President Elect, said at the launch of Guide M, “CIBSE’s Guide M is essential reading for everyone involved in designing, installing or operating building services. It is a comprehensive guide to good practice in the operation and maintenance of buildings.”

40

| CIBSE GUIDE TO BUILDING PERFORMANCE 2019

This guidance is intended for the benefit of all those involved in the operation and maintenance of engineering services. It aims to provide best practice for those who have responsibility for the management and maintenance of the engineering services in a building. It also aims to inform those who design and construct buildings and raise awareness of the implications their decisions have on enabling effective management and maintenance.

Performance outcomes, sharper focus The Building Services industry is concentrating on performance outcomes and closing the gap between design and operation. Working together, clients can be assisted by managing their expectations and maximising impact from their annual spends on the maintenance and management of buildings. The Guide avoids duplicating information that is available elsewhere, and references to useful documentation are provided. It identifies current good practice and addresses topics of particular interest and relevance to those involved at all levels in engineering services maintenance. This includes designers, manufacturers, installers, maintainers, building owners, occupiers and operators, professional advisors and specialist providers. It is not expected that the reader will read the publication from cover to cover; rather that it will be used for reference and guidance as needs arise.

This document is intended to bring maintenance into a sharper focus by helping building and property operators become more aware of their responsibilities and statutory duties. It will also help services designers to appreciate their role in providing installations that are safe, economic to maintain and operate, and capable of giving satisfactory performance over their full lifespan.

Presenting assets During the process of updating this Guide, the authoring Task Group collaborated with other publishers of best practice guidance including RICS (Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors), BESA (Building and Engineering Services Association) and BSRIA Ltd to agree a structure for presenting assets (see Figure 1.1, which provides an overview of how the documents span the life cycle of a building.). This has resulted in the economic life data provided in Chapter 12 being structured by system and elements, being numbered to match NRM3 and providing maintenance task references to SFG20.

Benefit from BIM With development of Building Information Modelling (BIM), it is the management and maintenance teams that can benefit most from the increase in useful information generated in a BIM project. Users of Guide M are encouraged to look at the principles of BIM and introduce them in their existing buildings as they repair and replace assets, enabling the generation of a wealth of information that will support the long-term management of their buildings.

MEES

Would you buy an F rated fridge – or rent an F rated building? If you are the landlord of a building with an F or G rated EPC, the Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES), mean that you are no longer be able to let it.

F

rom 1 April 2018, landlords have been unable to renew existing tenancies or grant new ones unless the building has a minimum EPC rating of E or is registered as exempt.

Martin Barlow, Partner at law firm Burgess Salmon stated in the lead up to the introduction of MEES: “From April 2018, a new legal standard for minimum energy efficiency will apply to rented commercial buildings. The new legal standard brings threats and opportunities for landlords, freehold investors, developers and lenders.”

Mitigate the threat Landlords can mitigate the threat of not being able to rent by:

• Conducting an audit of

Worth checking and considering options EPCs have been produced for commercial buildings since 2008 and nearly 20% of these are F or G rated. Changes to the software since have tended to produce poorer ratings, so an E in 2008 might now be an F. But many early EPCs used (worst case) defaults as accurate information was not available, so their EPCs may now be better based on accurate data. Heating, lighting, ventilation or air conditioning equipment replaced since 2008 will have a better energy performance than the equipment it replaced.

“Assessors registered with CIBSE Certification are also certified as CIBSE Low Carbon Consultants able to advise their clients on energy improvement projects and on meeting the requirements of MEES.”

their property portfolio to better understand which properties are within scope of the MEES Regulations and whether exemptions might apply.

• Carrying out energy assessments to check whether the EPC ratings for their properties are correct.

With all these reasons why a current EPC may not be accurate, it is worth checking, and considering options such as engaging with tenants and entering into energy performance contracts where the capital costs of energy efficiency improvements are covered by the supplier and utility bill savings are shared for the benefit of both parties. There is also potential to increase rental and asset value through energy efficiency improvements, possibly alongside other upgrades: a likely side effect of MEES is to strengthen the linkage between the EPC Rating of a property and its value.

Accuracy and advice All of this requires an accurate EPC. Whilst an EPC assessor should have these skills, assessors registered with CIBSE Certification all have skills beyond the ability to produce EPCs and the associated Recommendation Report. They are not only EPC assessors, but are also certified as CIBSE Low Carbon Consultants able to advise their clients on energy improvement projects and on meeting the requirements of MEES. ■ For more information and to access the CIBSE Certification online register of assessors, please visit www.cibsecertification.co.uk

Panasonic fits the bill for Major Retailer’s London Head Office Being set challenging air conditioning projects by blue chip retailers is nothing unusual for AMP & Panasonic.

O

ur recent project for one of the UK’s well-known brands, created air conditioning equipment design and selection difficulties, and the added pressure of a shortened programme and restrictive logistical/AC equipment locating difficulties, the gauntlet was down, and the challenge was on. The project completion date was midDecember 2018 with a start date of early September 2018 giving approximately 3 months overall. Working hand in hand with S&G Air Conditioning Contracts Ltd, AMP set about putting a Panasonic heat pump VRF scheme together to replace the existing unserviceable chiller equipment and chilled beams serving 2 floors of their offices.

42

| CIBSE GUIDE TO BUILDING PERFORMANCE 2019

The AMP solution was to replace the existing system with six Panasonic ECOi heat pump VRF systems connected to cassette fan coils serving all cellular offices and open plan zones, which would provide the client with optimum heating and cooling across their office space. With our solution agreed by the clients’ consultant, we pushed ahead in putting together a logistics plan for positioning the VRF condensers on the roof of this 10-storey building. Ordinarily this is not an issue, when employing a crane, but unfortunately on this project the use of any mechanical lifting or crane-age was out of the question due to timescales and road closure constraints. It was then that a strip down and re-build of the external VRF condensers was considered. To enable the work to begin, the condensers had to be professionally dismantled into more manageable sections at AMP’s head office, under controlled conditions, then the equipment was be transported to site for manual handling to the 10th floor roof.

The condensers were taken to the 8th floor level via the on-site goods lift with the final two floors to roof level being negotiated by manual lifting/handling. Once this this logistical plan was agreed and in place the next phase before starting on site was to agree what Controls & BMS protocol was required. With a mixture of open plan office zones, cellular offices and meeting rooms, on both floors, it was decided to have standard Panasonic CZ-RTC5B Controls to all areas and zones with the addition of the Panasonic Eco-Navi smart sensor control covering each of the single cassette offices and meeting areas. The Eco-Navi addition in the cellular areas would ensure an energy conscious regime would be delivered. Each floor would have its own Panasonic CZ-256ESMC3 touchscreen centralised control to act as floor by floor supervisory control and monitoring stations. The existing BMS protocol was operated by Trend, so we installed the Panasonic ECOi P-Link BACnet “Open Protocol” BMS Interface, which seamlessly integrated with their existing system, to cover all the Trend monitoring and controls needs to. With all the main project specifics agreed and in motion, the project was then expanded to include secondary Panasonic Mini ECOi heat pump VRF systems to take care of the IT & server rooms. It was decided that the systems in the IT/ server room run independently of the main system, understanding that a set temperature needed to be maintained at all time so that the IT equipment would not overheat. With the design & planning processes complete the Panasonic Air Conditioning and Controls could then be delivered and installed over a six to eight-week period which due to the detailed planning went like clockwork with great teamwork between AMP & S&G Contracts Ltd. AMP Technicians helped to commission all Panasonic elements of the project to ensure that S&G Contracts Ltd delivered the project on time with the Retailer being both pleased and environmentally comfortable in time for Christmas. ■

Rethinking collection of data for energy upgrades By Andrew Boothroyd, Energy Upgrade and Service Director, Armstrong Fluid Technology

Reviewing an alternative approach to data collection and project implementation for energy upgrade projects, which can deliver quantifiable energy savings ahead of traditionally-timed implementation of replacement capital equipment, facilitate best-in-class system design, and provide persuasive data to win the support of stakeholders.

E

nergy upgrade projects requiring sign-off for capital expenditure frequently take as long as a year and a half to reach the implementation stage. Typically, the first 6 months are spent collecting data, months 6 to 9 involve a data analysis phase, then technology solutions and a business plan are developed in months 9 to 12. Over the next 6 months stakeholders make their decisions until (18 months after initial discussions) the project is implemented. During that year and a half, not a single kWh of energy is saved. By utilising the embedded software and connectivity of the latest generation of Armstrong DE (Design Envelope) pumps, however, the energy upgrade project phases can be optimised. The new Armstrong DE pumps can be installed ahead of the rest of the project, exploiting the in-built performance monitoring functionality of the pumps to

“Using the advanced Active Performance Management software within the Design Envelope pumps allows up to 10% of the total system energy to be saved more than a year ahead of full implementation of the upgrade.”

collect and report the necessary data, instead of installing flow meters to complete this task. Building owners and occupiers can then begin to save energy from day 1, month 1 of the initial discussions, rather than having to wait until traditional implementation. Using the advanced Active Performance Management software within the Design Envelope pumps allows up to 10% of the total system energy to be saved more than a year ahead of full implementation of the upgrade. The Armstrong DE pump’s embedded technology continuously measures the pump flow, head and power. This data can be used in conjunction with system temperatures to generate a system-specific load profile and harvest much of the data traditionally acquired through the initial phase of the upgrade process (usually the first six months). In months 6 to 12, load-specific information obtained through the pump’s advanced performance management software can then assist the system-designer with the selection of main plant equipment. The quality and accuracy of the data also helps the system designer to determine which system modifications will be the most beneficial, enabling capital expenditure costsaving opportunities to be identified.

As the newly-installed pumps begin to save energy as soon as they are installed, regular measurable energy savings are achieved throughout the design and decision-making process. These early system improvements can be demonstrated to stakeholders, articulating energy savings from day one, helping to build credibility, confidence and an improved cash flow (feasibly positive from day one with Armstrong financing). The business case for the energy upgrade essentially writes itself. To discuss this approach in more detail, contact Armstrong Fluid Technology. Tel: +44 (0)8444 145 145

Collaboration central to CPD success Stewart Jones, Customer Technical Advisory Engineer, Conveyance Tubes at Tata Steel explores the merit of combining academia with practical industry knowledge to deliver accredited CPD courses, while addressing a wide range of industrial challenges and risks.

W

ithin the Building and Industrial Services Sector, particularly in the area of correct pipework specification, selection and compliance, there is a clear need for Continuing Professional Development (CPD) as many engineers still refer to withdrawn and outdated standards. For example, BS1387 and API are still commonly specified tube specifications, even though BS1387 was withdrawn in 2004 and API is actually an American line pipe specification, so is not a harmonised standard in accordance with relevant Regulations or Directives, such as the CPR (Construction Products Regulation) or the PED (Pressure Equipment Directive). Specifying withdrawn legacy standards can lead to procurement and compliance issues, incorrect or poor quality products getting into the supply chain, and issues with technical and service life performance that may result in early failures or increased maintenance costs throughout a building’s lifespan.

46

| CIBSE GUIDE TO BUILDING PERFORMANCE 2019

By attending appropriate CPD courses it is possible to keep up-to-date with the latest processes, products and standards, as well as technical advances, such as BIM (Building Information Modelling), as well as the use of VR (Virtual Reality) and other new methods of working. To address the pipework and challenges now faced by building services engineers, specifiers and designers, initiatives such as BISPA (the Building & Industrial Services Pipework Academy), at the School of Architecture, Building and Civil Engineering, Loughborough University, have been established. BISPA is a collaborative endeavour, combining the academic knowledge of both Loughborough and Cranfield Universities with the practical and manufacturing expertise of Tata Steel and its Tubes business. By providing a range of courses spanning all knowledge levels from novice to advanced, BISPA caters for those beginning their CPD journey as well as professionals looking to gain a more detailed insight into pipework specifications, installation best practice, corrosion awareness and the use of BIM and VR. Attendees will gain first-hand experience of using BIM software to create and modify

models in hands-on practical sessions aimed at both intermediate and advanced levels. Also within the facility are several pipework training rigs, which provide engineers with the opportunity to carry out installations and training activities. By providing a safe and controlled environment to perfect their skills, with the support of industry experts, attendees will feel confident when approaching challenges whilst on-the-job. In association with Tata Steel, course attendees will also explore the two main methods of manufacturing carbon steel welded tubes, hot-finished and cold-formed. Although these processes create products of a similar specification, they actually perform quite differently in service due to underlying factors and properties. Attendees will learn all about the technical advantages that the premium hot-finished tubes have over commodity cold-formed ones. BISPA’s corrosion CPD covers the issues associated with galvanic corrosion reactions and the risks seen when using stainless steel within traditional carbon steel and copper pipework systems. Whilst there is a perception that stainless steel is corrosion resistance, it can actually corrode, become easily contaminated, or result in increased corrosion within other parts of the system. So requires a very different mind-set during storage, fabrication and installation. Other variables that affect a product’s service life, such as pressure ratings, heat transfer, joint construction and integrity, are also covered by BISPA courses, enabling participants to obtain a thorough understanding of the main factors influencing pipework design. The accredited CPD courses provide clear guidance, enabling attendees to develop and further their career, and are approved by the Chartered Institute of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) Attending academic and industry created CPD courses is essential for every profession for career progression as well as for improving best practice within the industry. For building services engineers and consultants who create pipe and tube specifications, CPD is essential to ensure that up-to-date standards are specified and that the correct materials are used in order to prevent the possibility of failures throughout the building’s lifespan. ■ For more information on BISPA, please visit: www.bispa.org

Non-domestic Energy Performance Certificates By Samuel Maddock MSc, MSc Sustainable Building: Performance & Design Director/Sustainability Consultant, SUS Consultants

Non-Domestic Energy Performance Certificates (NDEPC’s) have recently come to the attention of property-owners since the UK Government announced the introduction of Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES) to existing rented commercial buildings in April 2018.

T

he requirement calls for all buildings that hold a NDEPC to achieve a rating of ‘E’ or above. The incentive behind this movement is to reduce building sector energy consumption as a response to climate change, and the commitment to reducing the UK’s carbon emissions. Approximately 16% of the non-domestic building stock will need to make energy-efficiency improvements to achieve compliance with this new regulation. Failure to comply may result in landlords being unable to let the property to new or existing tenants. NDEPC’s are used to target a large expanse of the building sector, where buildings with the least energy-efficient services installed can be identified. The NDEPC Register is an effective way of monitoring this on a national scale, as all commercial buildings which meet the criteria will have an EPC under regulation. Until recently, NDEPC’s have been viewed as a ‘tick box task’ towards Part L building compliance for new buildings, but they contain a great deal of important information useful to the building owner and building users, especially in existing buildings. The structure of an EPC identifies the efficiency of building services, including; heating, ventilation, air-conditioning, hot water, and lighting systems. It also includes

48

| CIBSE GUIDE TO BUILDING PERFORMANCE 2019

the thermal performance of the building envelope. An EPC acts as a quick and costeffective method of identifying energyefficiency in buildings by comparing the building services against current benchmarks for minimum energy efficiency standards. This information is easily accessible to the building owner and can be utilised when informing the potential replacement of building systems to improve the overall energy efficiency of the building. So, a building’s EPC is the single trigger when it comes to the enforcement of MEES, which could result in extensive and costly renovation to improve the overall efficiency of a building. Non-Domestic Energy Assessors, like myself, have a lot of responsibility in ensuring the EPC reflects the true efficiency of a building, and that best EPC rating can be achieved. If a landlord has a property which triggers MEES, the first point of investigation should start with the current EPC, which has identified the building with an ‘F’ or ‘G’ rating. There are different levels to an EPC assessment, which either use a steady-state calculation or Dynamic Simulation Modelling (DSM). Both routes can be used to produce NDEPC’s, but they are dissimilar in that a steady-state calculation uses one data set per month, whereas a dynamic simulation utilises hourly data sets. Such differences can have

a huge impact on the EPC rating. For example, in commercial buildings that use forced ventilation by central fans, DSM can potentially improve the rating to avoid the implications of MEES. If a new EPC needs to be produced the landlord should assist with gathering as much information as possible for the Energy Assessor to maximise the rating. This can include operation and maintenance manuals, equipment data sheets, service records and drawings, access to the Building Management System (BMS), and arrange communication with the building services engineer. If an EPC has been carried out to its maximum potential and still achieves an ‘F’ or ‘G’ rating, then landlords will need to ensure improvements are made and show that their property complies with current standards for energy efficiency by law. This could mean that existing building services and plant equipment will need to be replaced for new high-efficiency types, which is likely to require large investment from the property-owner. This is an opportunity to introduce energy management into existing buildings without strategies already in place, as well as improving energy efficiency. By doing so, it is possible to reduce the operational and maintenance costs of the building, which could prove beneficial when leasing the building and protecting its future asset value. ■

Underground Thermal interference in Ground Source Systems

P

opularity of ground coupled heat pump systems is increasing throughout Europe. As more systems are installed, the consequence is that thermal interaction between neighbouring systems is becoming a concern. As temperature effects of individual loops over time gradually move in to each other’s sphere of influence, temperature effects add up due to superposition. Many small effects can in the longer term (> 25 years) lead to loss of efficiency or even the inability to use ground source at all. Standard available design software such as EED, cannot calculate thermal effects between different systems and to quantify effects, elaborate and expensive specialist computer modelling has to be undertaken.

50

| CIBSE GUIDE TO BUILDING PERFORMANCE 2019

Robust method developed Groenholland has developed a quick and robust design tool (BUM/HUM method) that allows to effectively quantify the thermal effects between interacting locations and to correct the design of the ground source installation for the occurring temperature loss per location. The method was developed as an objective and relatively simple to use tool for the Dutch ministry of the Environment under the new ground source law (AmvB bodemenergie, 2013). The tool takes in to account the distance between interacting locations (up to a 120 meter radius), various standard soil thermal conductivities and the nett annual thermal extraction from the ground. Currently (2019) a new largely automated version of the tool is under development. Planning tool for ground source systems Another development at Groenholland is a tool for planning ground source systems in small or large scale building developments. The tool (iEEP – intelligent Earth Energy

Planner) allows the calculation of allowed energy extraction budgets per surface area (allotments). Currently, when using ground source, it is first comes first served, creating problems for latecomers wanting to use ground source heat pump systems. With the allocation of energy budgets, independent of actual system design, a limit is put on the allowed thermal interference between systems. Energy budgets are distributed as equally as possible and each system receives a specified minimum budget. Because of the very fast calculation used in the method, optimisation is feasible. International use Both above mentioned tools have generated international interest and the BUM/HUM method has been translated in to German and is undergoing it’s trials in customisation for the German market. As the underlying physics are universal the method can be applied worldwide, although always within a National or regional legislative framework. ■

ISO 50001

ISO 50001: effective management of your energy use Many UK businesses are looking to increase efficiency and reduce energy costs. Whether as part of an overall corporate strategy, a route to organisational efficiency or a key focus of a cost or carbon reduction drive, monitoring and managing your energy use effectively makes sound business sense.

I

SO 50001, the globally recognised energy management standard developed by the International Organisation for Standardisation, is the key tool in that process.

Your route to business benefits It provides a framework for effectively managing the energy that an organisation uses in its premises. It helps organisations understand where they are using energy, how that energy use can be managed effectively, and how consumption and costs can be controlled into the future. The standard is effectively a framework to:

• Develop policies and approaches for the more efficient use of energy

• Help set your own targets and objectives • Use data to better understand and make decisions about energy use

• Monitor, review and improve on an ongoing basis. Conformity with ISO 50001 is a route to a range of business benefits: organisations demonstrate responsible and efficient energy management, and can provide returns in energy and cost savings, and employee engagement. It can also provide an important business edge in public relations and satisfying tender requests for responsible energy management.

Six steps to managing your energy use 1. ISO 50001 is a voluntary standard that can help you to manage the energy you use in your buildings more effectively and efficiently 2. The standard is a strategic business tool that helps you develop an energy management system that works for your business and operations

52

| CIBSE GUIDE TO BUILDING PERFORMANCE 2019

3. Under the ISO 50001 framework, you will develop your energy management policy and targets, and measure and monitor your energy use 4. The targets you set and data you gather will help guide business decisions on the most cost effective measures to help reduce energy consumption, benefitting your business and producing savings

5. To maximise the benefits of energy management, target third party certification to ISO 50001 using a UKAS accredited Certification Body, such as CIBSE Certification Ltd 6. Ongoing monitoring and review will help ensure you deliver on your targets and keep on seeing efficiencies and business benefits.


ISO 50001

The business opportunities ISO 50001 is a relatively new standard, but its uptake is growing rapidly. It is now applied by major brand names in manufacturing industries, retail, financial services, communications and many other business sectors in the UK and internationally. The standard is not only viable for major energy users: it will form part of an integrated approach to energy management, and provide broad opportunities for improvement.

How to make the most of ISO 50001 1. Save where it pays ISO 50001 is designed to help to monitor and manage energy consumption. It offers the potential to reduce waste, and to use resources efficiently. 2. Enhance reputation and brand Early adopters of ISO 50001 report that a key benefit comes from its value to reputation and public relations: it demonstrates commitment to best practice in energy management and to reducing environmental impact.

Alongside savings in energy, the standard can help organisations to drive reductions in carbon and in overall carbon footprint. Third party certification by a UKAS accredited Certification Body, such as CIBSE Certification, provides robust confirmation of conformity with ISO 50001. Organisations gaining certification can display the ISO 50001 and UKAS logos on their promotional material. 3. Build and maintain business resilience ISO 50001 helps to embed energy resilience into an organisation, by providing a mechanism for continuous checking and review. It forms a key element of a broader strategy to ensure an organisation remains fit for the future.

“Conformity with ISO 50001 is a route to a range of business benefits: organisations demonstrate responsible and efficient energy management, and can provide returns in energy and cost savings, and employee engagement. It can also provide an important business edge in public relations and satisfying tender requests for responsible energy management.”

4. Engage employees Using energy wisely can involve activity across a whole organisation. ISO 50001 is a catalyst for engagement and team building within an organisation, as employees can identify opportunities to save energy and lead and implement efficiency initiatives and programmes. 5. Set a framework for benchmarking and reporting ISO 50001 certification adds business rigour to everyday energy consumption. The standard’s framework for benchmarking and reporting requires organisations to develop policies, set targets, and monitor progress against them, using consistent data gathering approaches.

CYBER SECURITY

DE6.1: Cyber security in building services design DE6.1, part of CIBSE’s Digital Engineering Series, is intended to assist those that commission, design, construct and operate built assets in understanding the implications of security on building services design.

Buildings form an increasingly important part of our national infrastructure as their internal systems become ‘smart’ and connected. They are becoming correspondingly more vulnerable to attack by virtue of their increasing profile and accessibility. This publication will give readers an understanding of how to carry out a basic risk/ threat assessment, and to understand their own limitations — and thus help readers to decide when to seek expert help to ensure that building services designs do not cause undue weaknesses to be designed into these vital systems.

hese implications may revolve around national security, commercial security or private security. Each will have individual requirements, and this publication looks to provoke thought in this regard. The solutions will be a matter for each individual organisation, company or person to ascertain. This guidance considers the risks and threats associated with security, and examines these in the context of building services design and how those considerations should change our approach to basic design considerations. It also identifies the need for dedicated security experts to review and feed into each design. Building services are increasingly part of the connected world, and this presents outside actors with opportunities to interfere with these services for myriad reasons. Such interference can have commercial or functional implications, and can affect the safety of a built asset, but most of this interference can be avoided by implementing simple changes in design philosophy.

COMPETENCY MANAGEMENT

The competency conundrum in maintenance engineering To ensure engineers’ skills match their roles, organisations must continually assess the competencies of their workforce. CIBSE guide KS21 explains how competency management can be embedded in maintenance engineering.

P

art of CIBSE’s Knowledge Series, this guide on competency was published in 2018. Produced by the CIBSE Maintenance Task Group, in association with the CIBSE Facilities Management Group, the guidance offers an understanding of competence and competency, focusing on the management of building engineering systems in operational buildings. It explains what individuals and organisations need to do to become fully competent.

Competency for essential engineering, maintenance and repair KS21 Competency and competency management systems in facilities management, explains the steps organisations should consider taking to improve and manage the skills of workers. Its goal is to ensure that those involved in the operation, maintenance and management of buildings have the right level of competency to carry out essential engineering, maintenance and repair tasks. At the publication launch, co-author Jo Harris said it had been written because there was no single place to go to for information on competency in FM. This is essential because legislation is pushing organisations into ensuring individuals are competent (covered in the guidance). The challenge is, Harris continued, that there are fewer skilled engineers as a result of

WWW.CIBSE.ORG

apprenticeships being abandoned after the 2008 recession. ‘We have multiskilled people and we have diluted their knowledge. They can’t be jacks of all trades and still be competent in multiple areas.’ The guide has a particular focus on the management of competency in multidisciplinary teams. ‘A lot of managers are coming into FM from diverse backgrounds,’ said Harris. ‘They need to understand what they have to comply with and how they ensure teams are competent.’ Part of the effective management of competency is the keeping of records, says co-author Steve Gathergood, to ensure individuals’ skills are tracked over time. ‘The onus of proof of competence will always fall on the employer or organisation,’ he said.

The competence continuum Gathergood explained the competence continuum, which shows how the level of proficiency relates to the level of supervision needed. ‘Competency can be influenced by a number of external factors, such as a change in behaviour, technology or environment. It has to be continually assessed.’ By doing regular reviews, you are in a better

position to put in corrective actions, he added. For example, as an apprentice gains experience, is trained and acquires confidence, he or she moves to the right of the continuum and the line manager can step back. If the technology changes, a person may no longer be competent for the role, and will need to be retrained. The principles of the Competency Management System (CMS) are described in the guidance. The CMS cycle describes the five phases from establishing requirements and designing the CMS to implementation, maintenance, and review. ‘The aim is to ensure people are clear about what they have to perform, what’s expected of them, and how they can receive appropriate training to remain competent,’ said co-author Steve Hunter. ‘It is a strategic differentiator when you go out in the industry. It shows you have a good management structure backed up with evidence.’ Summing up at the launch, Harris said it was in everyone’s interest to monitor engineers’ competencies and to train them if they need more skills to carry out their roles. ‘Too many engineers bounce between contracts because they don’t feel valued. Task-based performance reviews can help overcome this.’ ■ KS21: Competency and competency management systems in facilities management is available from: www.cibse.org/knowledge First published in CIBSE Journal – www.cibsejournal.com

carbon energy infrastructure in the UK then they need to be designed, built and operated to a high standard to deliver customer satisfaction. A Code of Practice CP1 on heat networks has been produced by CIBSE and the Association for Decentralised Energy (ADE), in collaboration with the former Department of Climate Change (DECC), now part of BEIS. The Code covers all forms of district heating to assist in achieving that aim by raising standards right across the supply building heat to large city-wide schemes. It is designed to apply to both new networks and extensions of existing networks. Rather than just providing guidance, the Code specifies minimum requirements which must be met in order to produce a successful scheme and comply with the Code. Further information is also provided on best practice for those looking to move beyond the minimum requirements. Setting minimum (and best practice) standards should provide greater

confidence for specifiers and developers and the Code is already being used in the tendering/contracting process. To join the CIBSE Heat Networks Consultants Register, individuals must first pass an examination which assesses their competence to use the Code of Practice, and will then have to undertake Continuing Professional Development (CPD) to maintain their competence, as well as supply up to date proof of their employer’s Professional Indemnity Insurance (PII). ■ To find out more and search the online register: www.cibsecertification.co.uk/ heat-networks If you have a query about any aspect of the Heat Networks Consultants Register, please email epc@cibsecertification.org

CHALLENGES FOR 2019

The Grand Challenges for 2019 2019 threatens uncertainty and turbulence as the construction industry awaits the fallout from Brexit and what the implementation of Dame Judith Hackitt’s recommendations in the Independent Review of Building Regulations and Fire Safety mean for the sector. Liza Young of CIBSE Journal asked representatives from across the project supply chain what they need for the industry to deliver safe, comfortable and low carbon buildings.

“We are all responsible for delivering betterperforming buildings, regardless of our role. This requires all stakeholders to have an understanding of the effect of each other’s involvement in a project, and help clients achieve a building to perform as designed.” WWW.CIBSE.ORG

S

ome of the themes that emerge are the prioritising of health and wellbeing – particularly among clients and facilities managers – and some form of soft landings. Another priority was a call for more collaborative working to achieve a wellperforming building.

The facilities manager (FM): James Campbell, Troup Bywaters + Anders The FM team will have a significant part to play in achieving designed building performance, and the cost of non-performance will have a disproportionate effect considering construction cost, says James Campbell, strategic asset and facilities management partner at Troup Bywaters + Anders, and CIBSE Facilities Management Group committee member. FM teams need to be intrinsic to the construction process, because they will spend longer than anyone maintaining, operating and modifying the building to support the business and its occupants.

However, a significant delay in FM engagement during construction still exists. The BSRIA Soft Landings Framework has raised the profile and benefits of early engagement through to post-occupancy evaluations, but Campbell says soft landings is often considered a commissioning and handover ‘activity’ rather than the process starting at Stage 0, where it can deliver most benefit. Although Breeam construction standards have brought management, commissioning, aftercare and health and wellbeing to the fore, activities required to attain some credits – such as seasonal commissioning and postoccupancy evaluations – are done over a number of years, after construction, says Campbell. ‘It will again fall to the FMs to deliver these activities, so it seems logical that the later they are engaged in construction, the larger the performance gap will be during operation’. For buildings to perform, operational teams must know them intimately and understand the design philosophy of the systems and elements that influence building performance. ‘The value that FMs can bring will be proportional to this understanding, but FMs can’t be expected to gain this level of understanding if they are only engaged at commissioning – or, even worse, at handover,’ says Campbell. He adds that FMs need the support of their construction peers – architects, quantity surveyors, engineers and project managers – to raise the profile and benefits of early engagement and involvement throughout the construction phase to clients. The skills gap within the FM and building services industries can be reduced by active involvement through the construction phase, where FMs can gain first-hand experience of the technologies and construction methods used, says Campbell. Training and product knowledge can be gained through the support of manufacturers and installers. >>

CHALLENGES FOR 2019

The consultant: Dave Grzelka, NPS North West Sound technical advice with in-depth knowledge of the sector is needed from manufacturers, says Dave Grzelka, building services engineering manager at consultant and site inspector NPS North West. As the designer’s remit is so wide, manufacturers need to cover their niche area comprehensively, have products ready in advance of any regulatory changes, and lead technological advance. ‘Manufacturers that are prepared to involve themselves in the commissioning process to enhance warranties are invaluable,’ says Grzelka. Every manufacturer will have the occasional supply or manufacturing blip, and their response to such issues will separate the fully rounded firms from those that are lacking, he adds. ‘Installers, or end users, need rapid and thorough responses to site or in-use issues. A manufacturer’s support team, which is able to respond quickly to commissioning or diagnostic problems with minimal delay, is important to achieving a successful project.’ From installers, Grzelka says the consultant needs a buy-in to the aims developed with the client, and a professional team ethic to overcome the inevitable site challenges as they occur. ‘A willingness to train operatives in new equipment and installation techniques is crucial to having a successful project,’ he says. ‘Proper planning of commissioning, with its inherent need for sequencing, and the necessity to involve the manufacturer’s team for full specialist commissioning are vital to give all available warranties to the client and offer optimum functionality.’

The consultant: Ashley Bateson, Hoare Lea Ashley Bateson, partner and head of sustainability at Hoare Lea, believes advancements in sensing and monitoring technology will be a great driver for improving the quality of the built environment. It will also challenge how the industry procures and manages buildings. Access to data on thermal comfort, air quality and other metrics in the workplace stimulates curiosity among office workers, he adds. ‘We find people are normally more interested to know about internal air quality than energy consumption. This is probably because factors that affect productivity and

60

| CIBSE GUIDE TO BUILDING PERFORMANCE 2019

wellbeing directly are more tangible than the cost of energy paid by an organisation.’ Bateson regards the democratisation of data as positive. ‘In the future, occupants will be asking how their comfort can be improved, with an expectation that employers should do something about it. Recently, we have noticed that teachers are getting more demanding about classroom comfort conditions, with one union suggesting internal conditions should not exceed 28°C, even though we are expecting a warmer climate.’ Access to good-quality data, however, will mean the industry will need to get better at delivering buildings that are fully tested and commissioned, with calibrated and validated monitoring devices, he adds. A soft landings approach to procurement will help deliver this, with greater attention to aftercare and outcomes.

The contractor: Pauline Madden, Shaylor Group Working collaboratively with industry peers and the supply chain is important for successful construction, says Pauline Madden, supply chain coordinator at Shaylor Group. ‘Bringing together dedicated teams with specialist skills and resources ensures the completed project performs to the highest possible standard,’ she adds. For a building to succeed, it is vital to understand: • The proposed use • Expected occupancy hours • How the building will be managed • Life-cycle running costs • Life expectancy of the building • Sustainability measures. Consideration of these helps identify the most suitable materials from a price, performance and appearance perspective, says Madden. It also aids the selection of an appropriate supply chain to meet building requirements. Shaylor Group’s prequalification questionnaire captures: relevant compliance, health, safety, environment and quality information; the Construction (Design and Management) Regulation requirements; capabilities; and specialisms.

‘This enables us to determine the most suitable sub-contractors for the project,’ says Madden, ‘ensuring a collaborative approach and a shared desire to produce an end product that meets the client’s expectations.’ The use of modern technologies equips the delivery team with a method of planning, designing, constructing and managing the works, she adds. The firm’s dedicated BIM department also brings efficiency to the design process by coordinating required services with the building fabric across the life-cycle of a project. ‘No matter the scale, location or sector, collaborative working, extensive project understanding, appropriate supply chain selection and new technologies are all factors in creating a building that performs.’


ISO 50001

The client: Nick Lee, CEG As a long-term investor, it is fundamental to carry out post-occupancy analysis on projects, says Nick Lee, development director at property company CEG. The firm’s project Number One, Kirkstall Forge, has been recognised for its emphasis on design and health and wellbeing. ‘What we really value is how buildings work for the people within them, and ensuring they create positive working environments. We monitor these continually to see if we can further optimise conditions, focusing on ensuring the environment is healthy and not using power unnecessarily – benefiting the planet and reducing operational costs for occupiers,’ says Lee. He adds that CEG is driven by its ability to demonstrate technically – as well as subjectively – that its buildings are better places. ‘Our customers are the occupiers, and their focus is recruiting and retaining the best staff. So our driver is to create good working environments that support these business objectives. If the place works well for its people, it is good for everyone involved.’ ■

Brexit and a potential no deal Julie Godefroy, CIBSE technical manager, says legislation already exists in the UK on energy and carbon, independent from the EU, so – in the short to medium term – there shouldn’t be too much impact after Brexit. The Clean Growth Strategy also gives some direction and co-operation will continue, through industry bodies, on things such as BSI and EN standards. The bigger impact may be felt on staff, expertise and the import of materials, she adds. The white paper on post-Brexit immigration implies that EU workers will be treated in the same way as non-EU ones, so visas will be available for ‘skilled workers’ with a salary of £30,000 or more. ‘But that is not what most engineering graduates will earn,’ says Godefroy. This could bring an upward push on salaries – good for workers, maybe less so for employers. Long term, Godefroy says, it might help to address the undervaluing of engineering, encouraging more students to take up the profession. The £30,000 figure will be consulted on. Supporting visa applications is a difficult and costly process that big firms can absorb, but which can be too much for smaller ones, she adds.

Regulations in 2019 CIBSE technical director Hywel Davies summarises what regulations to look out for in 2019: • The upcoming consultation for Conservation of Fuel and Power: Approved Document L, which will include overheating, is expected to be published in the spring

• The government is calling for evidence on the future technical guidance contained within Approved Document B (fire safety). The consultation closes at 11.45pm on 1 March 2019

• The government has published its implementation plan in response to Dame Judith Hackitt’s Independent Review of Building Regulations and Fire Safety

• The government will have to find a way of implementing the latest revision to the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive, published in June 2018. The deadline for this is 2020.

FIRE DETECTION & PREVENTION

Honeywell Advanced Detection – Adding smoke detection to building refurbishment projects The current levels of building and construction activity in the UK is approximately 60% of new build, whilst 40% is refurbishment and maintenance. When designing new buildings, the implementation of smoke detection can be factored in at the beginning of the process, however when dealing with refurbishments and maintenance this means you must work within existing structures and additions.

H

“The Agile Wireless Fire Detection System is a newly designed platform of wireless fire devices suitable for applications where wired fire devices cannot be installed for economic or aesthetic reasons making them ideal for a refurbishment project.”

oneywell’s Advanced Detection portfolio of smoke detection systems can cater for both scenarios but on refurbishments there are several options that can be provided. The Agile Wireless Fire Detection System is a newly designed platform of wireless fire devices suitable for all applications where wired fire devices cannot be installed for economic or aesthetic reasons making them ideal for a refurbishment project where they can be added to an existing smoke detection infrastructure. Using advanced MESH network technology, Agile offers far better performance than traditional wireless detectors (which typically feature a Star network configuration, where each device has a single communication to a central hub). Agile’s MESH network provides bi-directional communication paths to each wireless device for highly reliability and immunity to broken links. These wireless devices can be seamlessly integrated into existing panels supporting Series 200 protocols, giving the fire system the flexibility to be easily extended. Agile offers the best of both worlds, behaving just like a wired system on the fire panel (with the ability to switch between as many as 18 radio channels and two antennas per device). The system also uses an intuitive 3-in-1 software - AgileIQ™ - that simulates the

64

| CIBSE GUIDE TO BUILDING PERFORMANCE 2019

system design, checks all critical links (in line with EN-54-25 requirements) and even provides battery life predictions. These aspects combined with the use of a dongle for remote access to the system, can dramatically speed up site surveys, system quotations and ongoing maintenance. The wireless detectors use the Agile IQ software to enable easy design, configuration and maintenance. With aspiration, again Honeywell have the flexibility to deliver cost effective solutions in the deliverable of refurbishment. The VESDA-E VEA is as solution that can be used in this scenario. The VEA uses a microbore flexible pipe which are easy to install with push-fit connections and can make installation in existing infrastructure easier than running the traditional 25mm pipe. Each VESDA-E VEA has up to 40 microbore tubes which can be up to 100m in length enabling routing through an existing building space a much easier task. The VEA

has one unique feature when it comes to aspiration, each of the 40 tube is addressable allowing pinpoint detection of any smoke incident. VEA actively draws air through the 40 sample points and analyses each for the presence of smoke particles in a centrally located smoke sensor module. At the location of the VEA you can then run a centralized test and maintenance on all the sample points reducing the service time by up to 90%, allowing servicing of up to 500 addresses a day lowering total cost of ownership by up to 60%. So, when looking at this unit for a refurbishment project, it has several advantages. You can run the flexible pipes through and around existing infrastructure, the sample points are discreet enough that they can be added anywhere and you can deal with the service and maintenance of the system in a way that does not disrupt any ongoing business. The construction industry never stands still and with the pressure on delivering flexible buildings for a variety of uses in intense. Offices are being turned into flats, existing warehousing is being added to, offices are becoming more flexible spaces. The refurbishment of these spaces throws up different challenges and Honeywell are there to meet these in whatever form they take. Having flexible solutions provides options and the expertise of an industry leader is there to advise and deliver those choices. ■ To find more about the VESDA-VEA go to www.xtralis.com or for the Agile wireless www.SystemSensorEurope.com


Quickest, most cost-effective route to the safest refurb & retrofit Over 40% of all build activity in the UK is refurbishment and maintenance creating the need for easy-set-up, engineer friendly systems that can adapt quickly to meet changing site needs, while enhancing safety in the most cost-effective and unobtrusive way.

FIRE DETECTION & PROTECTION

Smoke control systems – competency is key In the event of a fire, the build-up of deadly smoke can reduce visibility, cause confusion and eventually overcome occupants long before the fire itself becomes life-threatening.

U

nless smoke is controlled and properly ventilated, escape routes can become inaccessible – both for occupants trying to escape and for firefighters entering the building. A robust smoke control system which has been properly designed, installed and maintained can ultimately save lives when incorporated into a wider fire engineering strategy.

When a fire takes hold, a well-designed and correctly installed smoke control system can: • Keep escape and access routes free from smoke • Facilitate fire-fighting operations • Delay or possibly prevent flashover, reducing the risk of the fire developing further • Protect the contents of the building from smoke damage • Reduce the risk of structural damage to the building Following the tragic Grenfell Tower fire, a number of organisations were brought together to form a steering group capable of taking forward the key recommendations laid out in Dame Judith Hackitt’s Independent Review of the Building Regulations and Fire Safety. Work has subsequently begun to improve competences for those working on the design, construction and operation of higher risk buildings and this encompasses installer competence, product testing and certification. The Smoke Control Association (SCA) has offered advice on improving guidelines within the Building Regulations and its members are fully committed to applying the latest standards for product testing, certification and system design. As is the case with other specialist sectors within the built environment, the smoke control industry has, until now, remained unregulated, making it difficult to

66

| CIBSE GUIDE TO BUILDING PERFORMANCE 2019

assess the overall competence of suppliers and contractors. However, it is critical that smoke control systems are installed and maintained by a competent person with the necessary expert knowledge in order to ensure optimum performance should a fire break out in the building. As part of a sustained campaign to raise standards, all SCA members who install smoke control systems are now required to apply for and receive SDI 19 Certification scheme accreditation, guaranteeing that they are suitably skilled and experienced in fire strategy verification, system design, installation and commissioning in accordance with the following standards and industry guideline documents:

“Following the tragic Grenfell Tower fire, a number of organisations were brought together to form a steering group capable of taking forward the key recommendations laid out in Dame Judith Hackitt’s Independent Review of the Building Regulations and Fire Safety.”

• Approved Document B • Approved Document B NI (Northern Ireland) • Technical Handbook (Scotland) • BS 9999 • BS 9991 • BS 7346 Parts 4, 5, 7 and 8 • BS 8519 • BS 8524 • EN 12101 Part 6 • Technical Reports 12101-4 & % • SCA Guidance Documents

Certified contractors will have clearly demonstrated that their trained staff consistently adhere to industry best practice and fully appreciate the importance of correct installation, inspection and maintenance, ultimately providing peace of mind for the consultant and building operator. A comprehensive maintenance programme is every bit as important as appropriate design and installation but can often be overlooked or simply forgotten about. BS EN 12101 and BS 9999 document maintenance requirements for both natural and powered smoke control systems, advising that life critical equipment should be included in a building services maintenance schedule. These standards also stipulate the frequency of tests and offer advice on what should be checked on a weekly, monthly or yearly basis. If a smoke control system fails, the consequences can be truly catastrophic. Therefore, the building operator has a duty of care to ensure that when they are looking to put a maintenance plan in place, they check that maintenance contractors are suitably qualified and fully understand the system they are working with. Taking risks or cutting corners with safety critical systems is, at best, irresponsible and negligent. Everyone involved in the design, construction and operation of high-rise buildings will soon face more stringent measures designed to improve fire safety standards and when it comes to smoke controls, competency is key. ■


THE VOICE OF THE SMOKE CONTROL INDUSTRY As experts in smoke control, SCA members lead the way in promoting and enhancing the design, manufacture, installation and maintenance of life safety smoke ventilation systems and ensuring only independently tested and certified products are installed in buildings. All SCA members are third party accredited, understand the varying smoke control requirements for all types of buildings and will provide solutions that are designed to meet the relevant UK regulations and standards.
