The annual general meeting of CIBSE Ireland was held recently in the Sandymount Hotel in Dublin. Outgoing Chairman Brian West reported on the successful year and summarised events held throughout the latter end of 2016 and the first quarter of 2017.

These included 24 CPD events at various locations throughout the country, along with the Irish Lighter Awards, the membership briefing, WIT and DIT student awards, the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering student awards, the SDAR Awards, the Pat Benson lecture and the Annual Christmas Lunch.

New Chairman Paul Martin and Vice Chairman Damien Flynn were elected, along with a new committee for 2016/17, including some fresh faces. The formalities concluded with a meal, networking and social interaction.

The new committee will work on the forthcoming programme of events over the summer months but the season will kick off with the CIBSE Ireland annual golf outing at Castlewarden Golf & Country Club on Friday, 1 September next. Main sponsor is Heat Merchants Group but there are also other sponsorship opportunities.

Industry Supports Laura Lynn Hospice

news-lauralynn-storyAs part of the Arup in the community initiative, Arup recently undertook professional design and construction services for a new parent’s room extension at the Laura Lynn Childrens’ Hospice in Dublin on a voluntary basis.

This has now been completed and further works are currently underway to upgrade the ventilation system in the nurses’ office and guest bedrooms.

Lindab and Vent Axia Ireland are generously donating two new heat recovery units, ducting and ancillaries to upgrade the systems, while Treysta Building Services are carrying out the installation of the units, again all on a voluntary basis.

Pictured at the Laura Lynn Childrens’ Hospice site meeting in Dublin recently were Barry Murphy, Vent Axia with Damien Flynn, Arup; Trevor Hammond, LauraLynn; Des O’Brien, Lindab, and Kevin Kelly, Treysta Building Services
