The CIBSE Building Performance Awards, now in their 15th year, recognise the people, products and projects that demonstrate engineering excellence in the built environment.

The Awards ceremony, held Thursday 24th February, 2022 at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge in London, hosted over 700 high profile professionals to recognise and celebrate achievements across the industry in building performance.

FairHeat won the Collaboration Award in recognition of an exemplary collaboration with Origin HousingHill group and I-MEX on the Echo Court development for delivering outstanding outcomes. Live from ceremony, Michael Ridge, Principal Engineer at FairHeat, commented:

“I’m delighted for the team of FairHeat, Origin, Hill and I-MEX to be recognised by this Collaboration award for Echo Court. Construction projects face many challenges, with budget and programme pressures always present. I’m proud to have been part of a team that worked together to ensure quality and end results for the building’s residents were never compromised and the results speak for themselves. I’m looking forward to delivering many more award winning projects with this inspiring group of people and companies.”

CIBSE Journal, the leading monthly magazine for building services and related professionals, mentioned the award in their March 2022 edition, stating:

“Judges said FairHeat and other contributing teams on the Echo Court heat network project had demonstrated the true spirit of collaboration with the client and contractor. Building an efficient heat network for a large residential scheme is no easy task, but FairHeat rose to the challenge with a truly collaborative approach that capitalised on the strengths of each party. Its industry-leading practices and design processes, combined with I-MEX’s technical expertise and the rigorous goal-setting process put forward by Origin and the Hill Group, led to a heat network that now operates within all nationwide performance and heat-loss requirements.”
