Webcasts, case studies and thought leadership from the Built Environment Sector themes and hot topics. This is an open access resource site for you to utilise and contribute content to.
The IET Built Environment Sector has an agreed strategy over the next three years. Hot topics or themes are identified followed by a plan of action for the IET to compile compelling engineering intelligence and to make it available in this area of the IET website for the wider engineering community.
Many of the themes will be addressed by partnering with other organisations and professional institutions. Themes and topics will be added as soon as content is available.
BIM is fast becoming an accepted process on many projects. See webcasts from industry experts on what this means for practitioners.
Webcasts and industry interviews from building energy efficiency professionals, as well as a perspective from tomorrow’s engineers in Europe.
The partnership between the IET and the CIBSE Lifts Group has produced a wealth of insights in this area.
Energy storage has a part to play in redressing the balance between power demand and power supply at a given point in time. Here are some useful links on recent developments.
