BuroHappold Engineering and University College London

Remaking London

uclTuesday 21 April, 6.00pm - 8.00pm

Location: Room G01, Central House, UCL, WC1H 0NN

BuroHappold Engineering with University College London discuss the redevelopment of the UCL estate, considering its infrastructure, refurbishment and management of the estate.

Key stakeholders across the project present, including:

Professor Robert Lowe, UCL Energy Institute
Energy in buildings touches so many parts of UCLs academic research including schools of environmental design, energy and building performance. UCL is also a big developer, owner and occupier of buildings. BuroHappold is involved with many parts of UCL from research, though to design and building monitoring. How can we bring together different parts of the organisation to map out a decarbonisation route for UCL that can be replicated by others? How do we remake London?

Duncan Price, Director, Sustainability, BuroHappold
The GLA has ambitious plans to decarbonise London through energy efficiency and low carbon heat networks. London Borough of Camden has taken this further with local heat mapping to identify clusters of opportunity. What is the long term plan to introduce low carbon heat into London and what could this mean for UCL?

Richard Jackson, Director, Sustainability, UCL
As owner and occupier of the Bloomsbury campus, UCL is a major stakeholder in London's low carbon future. What are UCL's overall plans for being a low carbon institution and contributing to the low carbon economy and how will it deliver sustainability through its £1.2bn capital programme?

Andy Keelin, Partner, BuroHappold
Design and delivery of high performance buildings requires a broad set of engineering skills including an understanding of client requirements, technical analysis and an ability to communicate with contractors. What are the tools and techniques required and what are the roles of BIM and soft landings?

Prof Dejan Mumovic, UCL Institute of Environmental Design and Engineering
Chris Van Dronkelaar, Research engineer, BuroHappold and UCL
Research shows that there is often a substantial gap in between design and as-built performance so managing energy may be as important as delivering refurbished buildings and infrastructure. What is the role of big data systems to help monitor and analyse the way that buildings perform and what else can we do to close the performance gap?

Panel Discussion
Chaired by Duncan Price including questions and comments from the audience
