ASSA ABLOY UK Specification announces new RIBA approved CPD seminar focusing on BIM Door Object development

ASSA ABLOY UK Specification, a UK division of ASSA ABLOY, the global leader in door opening solutions, is offering a new RIBA-accredited CPD seminar on creating standards-based BIM Door Objects.
The RIBA-accredited CPD seminar, entitled: ‘Enhancing the Efficiency of BIM Door Object Development’, is now available to book and counts towards the Design, Construction and Technology core curriculum.
The objectives of the seminar are to help architects understand the requirements and web-based resources available on the market for creating pre-built standards-based BIM Door Objects, in order to significantly improve the specification and scheduling process.
Eric Spooner, ASSA ABLOY BIM Manager, explains: “BIM is changing the building landscape, bringing with it improvements in design, specification, delivery and asset management.
“After working solely on BIM Door Objects for almost five years in the Americas, I’ve seen the majority of challenges faced by BIM practitioners in both architect and contractor practices.
“With this CPD, ASSA ABLOY UK Specification aims to help architects and specifiers understand how to enhance the efficiency of their BIM Object development via a number of web-based solutions.
“One such solution is Openings Studio, a Revit plugin and cloud-based scheduling software for doors and ironmongery that streamlines the specification process, as well as reduces costs throughout the project lifecycle.”


UK Lighting To Shine Bright At Light+Building

After its success in 2016 the LIA Lighting Pavilion returns bigger and better to Light+Building (18 - 23 March 2018, Frankfurt), the world’s leading trade fair for lighting and building services technology.
With its reputation as the place you have to be and be seen, demand for exhibition space at Light+Building is unparalleled and can be difficult sometimes for new companies entering the exhibition for the first time.
Working closely with Messe Frankfurt the LIA negotiated the return of its Lighting Pavilion. Designed to showcase UK lighting, the Pavilion will give those involved exposure to over 210,000 visitors and 2,600 exhibitors all under one roof.
At the time of writing, joining the LIA on Stand A44 in Hall 6.0 (general lighting) are:
•    Arts Energy SAS
•    DW Windsor Ltd
•    Europhane SAS
•    Inspired Lighting Ltd,
•    NJO Technology Ltd,
•    Supreme Imports Limited,
And a first for the LIA, is the introduction of an additional Lighting Pavilion situated in the decorative hall (6.1.) Visit stand D50 to see key players of the UK decorative Industry:
•    Dar Lighting Ltd
•    TP24 Limited
The LIA are proud to be bringing together these lighting companies, under our banner we will promote the UK lighting industry to the world and give those involved the platform to get seen in new markets, increase their export market potential and not forgetting the networking and business development opportunities.
So if you at Light+Building make sure you visit the LIA Lighting Pavilions.


Energys Group urges NHS to take action now and not wait for increased government funds

Kevin Cox explains why the NHS and other public bodies must make energy efficiency savings to release more funds for over-stretched ‘front-line’ services.
While uncertainty about Brexit dominates the political landscape, causing equal amounts of anxiety and expectation in the public at large, other aspects of public life continue to loom large. In particular is the perennial strain on the NHS budget and stress on its staff and patients.
In its recent survey findings of respondents in England, released in September 2017, The Kings Fund found that despite the “significant challenges faced by the NHS, it continues to enjoy unwavering support among the public which endures across the generations.”
Indeed 77% of the public believes the NHS should be maintained in its current form; around 90% of people support the founding principles of the NHS and 66% are willing to pay more of their own taxes to fund the NHS, underlining growing support among the public for tax rises to increase NHS funding.
“We’re not here to comment on the political aspects of the findings of The King’s Fund and IPSOS Mori survey or to call for increased taxation to support the NHS,” comments Kevin Cox, Managing Director of Energys Group. “However, we are calling on the NHS facilities managers, energy managers and Trust chiefs to take the lead in making their estates more energy efficient, and return the savings to where there is the most need – patient care.
“There is no argument from us that staff at the NHS do crucial work, whether on the front-line caring for, transporting and supporting patients directly, or in the critical, unseen and unheralded back-room services, such as administration, maintenance, HR and finance.”
The recently released third annual Impact Report released by the independent NHS Sustainability Campaign highlights the work that is being done by individual trusts to develop low-carbon measures and make considerable savings. For example the North East Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust expects to save around £1.2m each year thanks to a carbon management plan.
Kevin Cox applauds the work being done by Trusts to develop low-carbon measures: “But there is more to be done to ensure that those who work in this 24-hour, 365 days a year service, are not paying the price for their care, in poor working conditions, inefficient buildings and at increased risk to their own health and wellbeing. The NHS needs to look after itself in order that it can look after the public.”
Energys Group will be launching a year-long campaign to help the NHS achieve estate-wide cost savings that will have a significant effect on productivity, staff wellbeing and ultimately, enable savings that will benefit patient care.
