BSRIA Briefing & Luncheon 2017 - Tomorrow's Challenges in Today's Buildings


Trend Control Systems Ltd

It is well known that 80% of the buildings needed for 2050 already exist. But what will be the requirements within these buildings to accommodate the changing and varied expectations of the occupants whilst not forgetting our energy/carbon targets?

The latest opportunities emerging are focused on health, wellness, independence, mobility and leisure. Products and services that address these needs will have a fast growing market to capture. Building services are at the heart of realising these opportunities and delivering the built environment of the future.

This will not only provide challenges for the workplace but also for communities as a whole, including residential, leisure and retail.  How will building services need to adapt to meet the needs of future generations and industries?

Sir Ranulph Fiennes Bt OBE ‘The world’s greatest living explorer’

Because the coming demographic shifts are foreseeable over the next few decades, Governments are afforded the opportunity to adopt a proactive approach to align their policies to the evolving needs.
Our Briefing this year explores the options of how technology and research can enable us to prepare and accommodate future needs both in the residential and commercial buildings of the future.

After lunch speaker
Sir Ranulph Fiennes Bt OBE

Ranulph Fiennes is the first person to reach both North and South Poles by foot. He also made it into the record books by completing seven marathons on seven continents (including Antarctica) in seven days – soon after receiving emergency heart surgery. Only then did he take up climbing, starting with the North Face of the Eiger. At the age of 65, at his third attempt, Ran became the oldest Briton to Conquer Everest.

Amongst an incredible catalogue of adventures and extreme tests, Ran has recently undertaken
The Coldest Journey, an attempt to cross Antarctica on foot during the southern winter where the temperature falls to minus 90°C. He was forced to withdraw when he suffered severe frostbite, but still claims that “if you are lucky enough to be able to walk around without a crutch, you might as well go for it". It didn’t stop him from undertaking the hottest journey, the Marathon des Sables, and a 159 mile run over six days in temperatures over 50°C through the Sahara.
