In the second part of our session on issues of sustainability at the HEFMA Leadership Forum, Steve Merridew, a CIBSE Low Carbon Consultant and Building Services Engineering Director at BDP, will drill into a problem facing many HEFMA members. Steve will draw on his experience in low energy design, master-planning and infrastructure to shed some light on how to improve the thermal and energy-efficiency of the aged estate.
Steve has delivered energy and infrastructure strategies, and advised on designing for net zero for organisations including Milton Keynes University Hospital NHS Trust, City Football Group, Parliament, BAA at Heathrow, University of Warwick, Manchester Metropolitan University and Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust. He has recently completed the BREEAM outstanding and WELL Platinum fit-out for the Royal College of Physicians North.
Steve is a member of the reviewing panel for the bdplab which brings together innovation and research explored across BDP, as well as acting as a stimulus for new research initiatives with both academia and industry. He has previously acted as BDP’s Head of Sustainability and as a Director of the Manchester Climate Change Agency.
As well as the informative speaker programme, the Leadership Forum also includes an exhibition at which suppliers will feature their latest product and service innovations, the Awards Dinner and extensive networking opportunities.
