Saving energy, meeting carbon reduction targets, reducing costs – these are all phrases which we are very familiar with in this industry because they are things which we are all trying to achieve on a daily basis. It doesn’t matter what your role is because becoming energy conscious is at the very heart of every business, but after you’ve swapped the light bulbs and made some other ‘quick win’ adjustments to the building, what happens next.
The answer of course is building controls, which should lie at the heart of every energy reduction strategy.
Building controls come in many formats, from full Building Management Systems right through to PIRs which will detect a presence in the room and adjust the services accordingly. But regardless of whether you are new to the concept of controls or an old hat wanting to find out more about the latest technology, Building Controls South is the exhibition for you.
Taking place on 26-27 October 2011 at Sandown Park, Building Controls South is the only exhibition in the UK which is dedicated to the building controls industry and as such will provide a focussed event which showcases new product development and technical innovation in building controls.
The event will feature a wide range of exhibitors, showcasing the very latest in building control technologies, and informative seminars which will be presented by industry leading experts.
In short, this dedicated event will not only provide you with access to what is new and available now, helping to resolve current needs and application challenges, but it will also give you a real insight into the exciting developments and technical innovations that are currently being undertaken.
A few years ago building controls were seen as something of a dark art – products which were really only used by companies with plenty of money to spare. But as energy prices soared and budgets were cut, this part of the industry has gone from strength to strength and is now seen as one of the first ports of call for reducing energy use.
But with every success story there is a downside and in this case, because it is one of the fastest moving areas of the industry, it can be extremely difficult to keep up to date with what is happening on a regular basis.
The controls industry sees new products and innovations appearing at every corner and regardless of whether you are specifying, installing or maintaining controls systems, you still need to keep on top of the latest technology to ensure that you are meeting your carbon reduction targets and making the most of the technology which is on offer.
Which is why a visit to Building Controls South makes sense. Put simply you will find everything you need to know about building controls all under one roof, and while it can sometimes be difficult to justify a day out of the office at an exhibition, this is one that you won’t want to miss.
Being able to see the products and innovations from the top names in the building controls industry is just one reason to visit Building Controls South, the other reason is the seminar programme which will bring together industry leading experts who will focus on key areas where savings can be made using building controls technology.
The two day programme will focus on building controls in new-build and retro-fit applications and will focus on the challenges which the installation of a building control system can bring in each of these applications as well as the benefits which can be realised.
The guest speakers will also focus on how to overcome some of the issues which are involved and the savings which can be made. This will be a great opportunity to listen to the experiences of others and learn not just about the technology which is available, but also how it can be used to the best advantage of your business or installation.
See you there
Taking time out of the office is never easy, and with the increasing pressures which are constantly being put on your time it would be easy to simply ignore the exhibitions and events which are happening around the country.
However, saving money is at the top of everyone’s agenda and that is something which you definitely cannot ignore which is why Building Controls South is one event which you can’t afford to miss because by doing so you will be missing out on a great opportunity to find out about new technology which will help you to reach your carbon reduction targets and reduce your energy bills.
Building Controls South is the only event to provide you with access to the building controls industry so put the date in your diary and watch out for more information, including how to pre-register, over the coming months.
