Sponsor Profiles

Commercial heating manufacturer Remeha is delighted to sponsor the inaugural Building Services Forum.

As providers of complete heating solutions, Remeha works closely with specifiers, consultants and building services engineers. Remeha understands the pivotal role of the building services sector in making buildings actually do what they are designed to do – creating not just a shelter but a safe environment where people can live, work and achieve.

  • The Building and Industrial Services Pipework Academy (BISPA) is a collaboration between the School of Civil and Building Engineering, Loughborough University and Tata Steel and its Tubes business.

    Established to raise awareness of Building Information Modelling (BIM) and pipework-related issues and innovations. BISPA provides CIBSE accredited training courses for designers, specifiers and building services installers.

    The UK has been set a target to reduce its share of carbon emissions by 80% by 2050, so BISPA aims to promote cost-effective energy saving practices in pipework system design and installation.

    BISPA is undertaking a number of research initiatives comparing the performance of various HVAC pipes, identifying best practice and developing digital tools for the efficient design and installation of HVAC pipework systems for new low energy and retrofit commercial buildings.

Carlo Gavazzi

  • Carlo Gavazzi has one of the largest energy management and smart building ranges in the UK. Simple to install, single/three phase energy meters are easily integrated into the latest energy platforms and the 2 wire bus system for smart buildings provides a unified approach to controls services such as HVAC, lighting and other building services.

    There is scope for massive energy reduction, and investment in energy saving technology can be recouped relatively quickly. Carlo Gavazzi’s solutions result in better management of buildings; meeting the demands of intelligent buildings depends on the flexibility and intelligence of the infrastructure keeping up with the pace of change and consuming less energy. Carlo Gavazzi believes it’s all about getting the technology and right strategy.

    Carlo Gavazzi offers rapid and cost effective installation that encourages optimisation of energy consumption, building efficiency and a lower carbon footprint.

  • Panasonic Electric Works is a global leader in the innovation, design and manufacture of Relays, Connectors, Switches and PIR Sensors. Its latest innovation in PIR motion sensors includes the new Dual Zone Lens type and patented “Approach Sensing Technology”, Horizontally Wide Detection type.

    Panasonic PIRs unique design concept goes from the production of the sensing devices to the internal signal processing, thus guaranteeing an optimal detection capability and high reliability.

    Panasonic NaPiOn & PaPIR sensors all have a standard 3 pin footprint, 2 pins for power supply and 1 pin for output signal, the circuit design once approved can use any of the 71+ standard sensor variations depending on applications sensing/trigger requirements. This allows product designers to finalise hardware in reduced timescales and concentrate on the firmware/software offering of their application.

    Panasonic sensors allow for quick and easy product hardware development enabling engineers to work on the behavioural pattern modelling associated with their application.


  • Priva is one of the UK’s leading suppliers of building control systems through its network of fully accredited partners. It offers cutting-edge technology to provide a comfortable, healthy and energy efficient working environments for all applications.

    Priva has various innovative market leading cloud-based solutions, including BI Metrics, BI Energy and BI Alarms, which provide accurate building performance analysis via KPI’s and energy management packages.

  • Energy efficiency is a key issue of our day and age when it comes to conserving resources and climate protection. About 19% of the energy used world-wide goes on lighting. This equates to an annual demand of about 2,650 terrawatt-hours. Here, the intelligent use of lighting can make a huge contribution to saving energy.

    Sensor technology from STEINEL makes intelligent lighting possible – for the good of the environment, but also for added convenience, safety and security every day. It is only switched ON automatically when it’s actually needed, and automatically OFF again when it’s no longer required. Combining innovative LED technology with sensor technology can even make an energy saving of up to 90%.

    Sensor-switched lights, motion detectors and presence detectors from STEINEL demonstrate just how intelligently energy can be used. High-tech, ground-breaking products from STEINEL go hand in hand with energy efficiency – whether at home or in business.
