Training & Residential Developers Theatre

People are more connected than ever in their work and personal life, and are demanding that their homes are too. Having the ability to control their home remotely, or from their phone or smart device has become a must for many homeowners.

Whether it be controlling HVAC, security, blinds, lights or integrated audio/visual equipment people need professional installation and this is where the Residential Developers Theatre at Smart Buildings Show will inform and educate.

From large installers on large new build projects to a local installer of smart devices, the Residential Developers Theatre will have the answer.

Bringing together the integrators, resellers and manufacturers in this sector, plus the key associations the Residential Developers Theatre will answer all the key questions and show the benefits of being a player in this fast growing sector.

Inspire the Next ‘Smart’ Generation

In his Presidential Address in May, Kevin Mitchell, the President of CIBSE said “Inspiring and supporting the next generation of engineers will help society solve the big technical and scientific challenges of today and tomorrow”

He went on to say: "Research shows that the most talented young people - those who have a choice of profession - are increasingly drawn to careers where they believe their work will have a positive impact on the world. I would argue that there are few careers that offer more opportunity to deliver real change than that of a Building Services Engineer,"

"If we can inspire people to join us – people from a range of backgrounds who reflect the communities we serve – if we can do that, our ability to problem solve and innovate will increase exponentially".

This session on Inspiring the next generation will cover and explain how everyone of us here at the Smart Buildings Show can be part of launching these careers and ensuring the UK has the required skills in this crucial sector.

Jon Belfield

Managing Director

InTandem Systems Ltd

Jon is Managing Director of InTandem Systems Ltd, a successful BMS and Integration Company operating mainly in the South of England.
He graduated from UoP with a BSc ‘Engineering with Business Studies’ then later achieved FCIBSE and CEng. After starting out with Landis & Gyr, an opportunity to run a controls and automation company was irresistible and this lead to challenges ranging from developing telephone operated lighting controls to medical electronics as well as process controls and automation (inhaler testing for Shearing Plough) and hydraulic valve flushing for Vickers
After 12 years in this sector and identifying a gap in the market for a customer-led (as opposed to product-led) controls company, InTandem Systems Ltd was formed.
He is on the Industrial Advisory Board for both Havant and Southdown College and the University of Portsmouth and the improvement for vocational training and creating opportunity for Young Engineers is a core value.
Jon was elected as BCIA President for two years in 2018 and is currently a Committee member on the CIBSE IT & Controls Group. He & InTandem Systems have won several national CIBSE & BCIA Awards including Outstanding Contribution by the BCIA & the coveted CIBSE Employer of the Year Award for the development of young engineers (twice!!)

Building Automation solutions

Building Management Systems (BMS) are integral to the building design and there are countless solutions for building control in the market. Also, many systems control one part of the building such as the lighting or blinds. There are other systems that are specific to a control level such as at supervisory level for plant control.
So the choice of a BMS can be daunting, especially as design segments of the building project can often be siloed in their approach.
As an integrator if you have a protocol that can act at all levels then the system designer can mitigate risk and manage control of multiple systems. It also means that the architect can offer their client effective control solutions and guaranteed interoperability.

For a protocol to be effective across all building systems and at all control levels it must deliver the following:
Functionality & Performance
Scalability
Usability
Reliability
Efficiency
Longevity

The BMS solution you chose must give you all the flexibility during the design phase with the assurance that it will work as designed!

Lighting, Energy and the Environment

Energy use and our environment are inexorably linked. No matter how hard we try, using innovative efficient new luminaire designs and controls, an installation will always have a carbon footprint. But, how much energy is used in the production of luminaires adding to that carbon footprint? One light can indirectly produce one tonne of CO₂ per annum from its energy use alone, what can we do about it?

A balance must be achieved between the quality of the lit environment from the user’s viewpoint and all aspects of the environmental impact of the installation throughout its operating life. Are you passionate about helping to save the environment, and would you like to save the client money at the same time? This presentation answers these questions and suggests a modern approach to reducing all our carbon concerns.

Speaker

Matt Jones

Technical Manager

Thorlux

Matt’s career in lighting started 25 years ago when he joined Thorlux as an apprentice. Working his way through the Quality and Technical Services departments and being the Engineering Assistant to the Managing Director to his current position of Technical Manager, Matt has achieved HNC in Mechanical engineering and a degree in Management of Manufacturing System.

Through this time Matt has built up first-hand knowledge of lighting, luminaires and lighting control systems, is involved in the design, development and marketing of luminaires and is also responsible for running the group’s carbon offsetting scheme.

What Makes Your Building Smart

Within this CIBSE approved CPD session we will explore using a bottom up approach to connecting building systems, centralising platforms and aggregating building data. We will then explore how we can use this data to drive relationship actions between building systems.

Delegates will gain an understanding of how we can approach a smart building from either a retrofit or greenfield deployment. Plus, insights into how latest technology can deliver a more efficient, productive and healthy place to work, and make a major contribution in achieving sustainability goals, reducing energy consumption and maximising operational efficiency.

Integrating BMS With Audio-Visual Technology In Residential Developments

The role of the BMS continues to evolve. However, one area that’s frequently overlooked in large residential schemes is how it can be successfully and seamlessly integrated with audio-visual (AV) systems to create a fully functioning smart home that also meets the comfort, convenience and aesthetic demands of the occupants. This talk from CEDIA-award winning company Imperium Building Systems will explain why deeper integration between BMS and AV is so important in this type of project, the barriers to integration and how these barriers can be effectively overcome to the benefit of all parties involved.

Speaker

Chris Thorne

Director

CEDIA

With almost 25 years industry experience across both the BMS Controls and later the Audio Visual industries Chris’s development came from a 15 year career working for Trend Controls, part of the Honeywell Corporation. Initially training as a BMS engineer, he spent a number of years managing and maintaining BMS installations before moving into a business development role helping developers, consultants and integrators design, specify and sell integrated control systems for significant commercial and residential developments.
Eventually leaving corporate employment to focus on BMS and Audio Visual Control solutions in the luxury residential market, Chris joined Imperium Building Systems Ltd, a highly specialist controls and integration business with a considerable track record for designing and installing solutions in some of the most prestigious, luxury residential properties in the world.
