CIBSE: 125-year-old association of construction services professionals powers sustainable transformation in the Middle East

The Chartered Institute of Architectural Services Engineers (CIBSE), a global network of architectural services professionals, has outlined its goals in the Middle East and celebrated its 125th anniversary as one of the domain’s premier authorities. CIBSE has announced that sustainable transformation, in terms of building efficiency and ecological footprint, will be the cornerstone of its efforts and initiatives in the Middle East.

Since its founding in 1897, CIBSE has invested in education and research, cultivated a community of like-minded individuals, and provided networking opportunities for effective knowledge flow on a global scale, thereby advancing service engineering. has promoted best scientific practices in the construction of In recent years, CIBSE has been firmly positioned at the intersection of the built environment, technology and sustainability, aligning the industry with emerging priorities.

“CIBSE members represent the pinnacle of global building services engineering. The longstanding professional association has remained a beacon of excellence throughout the transformation of the building services industry. CIBSE’s region-specific roadmap for sustainable transformation is important in the Middle East, where the need has become prominent in the last few decades.United Arab Emirates Chapter.

After its official launch in Dubai in 2016, CIBSE is the foundation of the Society of Public Health Engineers (SoPHE), the Light and Lighting Society (SLL), the Young Engineers Network (YEN), and the Women in Building Services Engineering (WiBSE). In 2021, CIBSE released her two reports outlining minimum design guidelines for mechanical and electrical services in the UAE and KSA.

The report specifically touched on design considerations, practices, and techniques that increase building service efficiency, optimize energy use, and enable engineers to pursue net-zero goals. CIBSE’s focus on sustainability and net zero emissions stems from the well-documented argument that buildings account for nearly 50% of his GHG emissions globally. In response, members of the Association are taking corrective action in their respective markets around the world.

“CIBSE fundamentally mobilizes stakeholders in building services and aligns them on a path leading to a future in which the built environment is characterized by sustainability, green energy, data-driven operations, and high livability. With its industry track record and global reputation, CIBSE is well-positioned to coordinate the multi-stakeholder participation necessary to achieve this feat. The UAE Annual Awards are a great way to recognize exemplary professionals and encourage greater participation,” added Kevin Mitchell, CIBSE President.

After last year’s pandemic-related disruptions, the CIBSE UAE Awards will return as an in-person event on September 8th at the magnificent Armani Hotel in Burj Khalifa. Consultants, graduates, young engineers and manufacturers in the MEP sector will be honored at the CIBSE UAE Awards. Deluxe sponsors for the event include Polypipe, THERMOBREAK, Leminar, CVS, and his KAN-Therm. De Montfort University and Hisense HVAC are Gold Sponsors.

As the CIBSE Awards 2022 coincides with the association’s 125th anniversary, President Kevin Mitchell and CEO Ruth Carter will be attending for the first time in the region. The award is part of his CIBSE motto to promote careers in service building by rewarding exemplary achievements. The association’s knowledge/resource portal empowers high achievers and prospects by facilitating their path to full membership.

Enable collaboration and cross-border knowledge flow, recognize and reward high performers, and engage global stakeholders for sustainable transformation in an era of great dynamism in building services. CIBSE’s impact on mobilization is profound. In the Middle East, where new buildings are being built in large numbers and existing inventories begging for technology-driven optimization, CIBSE UAE’s ambitious regional roadmap is cause for celebration.
