As part of the CIBSE Ireland 50th celebrations the Institution will host a gala dinner in the Clayton Hotel, Burlington Road, Dublin 4 on Friday, 30 November. Dress code is business suit/smart casual.
This dinner will replace the annual lunch for 2018 and promises to be an even greater extravaganza with an attendance of 700 plus anticipated. Tickets are currently on sale but demand is exceptional so, if interested in attending, log on www.cibseireland.org now.
The programme for the evening will commence with the CIBSE Ireland welcome reception sponsored by Mitsubishi Electric Ireland at 6pm. This will be followed by dinner, some very brief addresses, the presentation of the CIBSE Ireland Awards (see below), and entertainment by Mario Rosenstock.
Networking will then continue within the ballroom and the dedicated private bar area well into the late/early hours with music by the Velvet Tones.
CIBSE Ireland Awards — As 2018 marks CIBSE Ireland’s 50th anniversary, the Institution has devised a new awards scheme designed to recognise, and promote, best practice in respect of the design and installation of building services. It takes in both new-build and refurbishment across commercial and industrial (non-domestic) projects. These awards are open to the design consultant and mechanical or electrical contractor, and submissions must be a joint entry by both the consultant and contractor.
Buildings that are eligible for submission include — hospitality, leisure, health, commercial, industrial, retail, pharmaceutical, educational facilities and office buildings.
There are three categories for the CIBSE Ireland Awards, and they are sponsored respectively by Daikin, Hevac and Wilo. These are — Up to €2 million; Between €2 million and €5 million; Over €5 million. Applicants may enter only one project per category.
Projects can be located anywhere in the Republic of Ireland and entries must be submitted by the design consultant/project engineer on behalf of the design and contracting teams.
Projects must be “practical completed” by 31 December 2017 (i.e. available for client use in January 2018) to be eligible for inclusion.
