Social landlords learn about fire safety with Aico

moke and Carbon Monoxide (CO) Alarms specialist, Aico, organised a fire safety event in London attended by the capital’s social housing landlords. Held at the Kia Oval cricket stadium, the 75 attendees were from London housing associations and local authorities. They received a one-hour CPD presentation on the latest domestic fire safety standards and regulations, along with advice on alarm selection and siting within properties. The main presentation was followed by sessions discussing Aico’s products, including: uAudioLINK data extraction; uRadioLINK+ and future innovations; uHow and why to wirelessly interconnect alarms to third party safety devices such as Telecare/Warden Call devices; uBS5839 Part 1 panel systems and sprinkler systems, and uA presentation by Jim MacDonald, Lead Officer Specialist Services, Communities/Housing

benefited from integrating its fire alarms with Warden Call devices in sheltered

accommodation and HMOs. Sessions were divided between a conference room and two of Aico’s Mobile Training &

Demonstration Units which were on site for the day. “We’ve had considerable demand from Social Housing Landlords across London for training around fire safety,”

said Aico Marketing Manager, Michael Wright. “As training and education is at the core of everything we do, we felt it was important to hold a large scale event to reach as many people as possible. The event has been so popular that we weren’t able to accommodate all those who wanted to attend, so we will be running a further event in December.” Gaia sales rep reaches new heights for charity

The treacherous climb took five days, but Matthew says: “It was worth all the training and hard work to help a charity which has done such great work in raising awareness of men’s health issues.” Matthew’s fundraiser page is still open if you would like to donate. fundraising/matt-janney1.

Bosch backs CIBSE’s Society of Digital Engineering T

he Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers’ (CIBSE) Society of Digital Engineering (SDE) is a step in the right direction, according to an industry spokesperson from Bosch Commercial and Industrial.

CIBSE has launched the Society to support anyone involved in bringing digital elements to the built environment, be it designer, manufacturer, or contractor – an approach welcomed by Pete Mills, Commercial Technical Operations Manager at Bosch Commercial and Industrial.

Mills comments: “As building services engineering moves further into the digital world, engineers are increasingly being faced with conducting everyday tasks via a digital platform they may be unfamiliar with. Therefore, adopting digital engineering via platforms like this will be crucial to the future of the built environment, no matter your role in the building process.”

Modelling (BIM) being relatively slow, despite its time in the spotlight, Mills welcomes the SDE as a fresh take on the concept. He comments: “Given the hype around BIM, it’s time for industry to refocus and truly unearth what the initiative was about in the first place, which is ultimately, to realise savings by encouraging information sharing and collaboration. “The SDE offers an incremental process whereby engineers and building services companies can adapt at a steady pace. The society should bring more structure to the BIM process, helping to gain the interest of those that would otherwise have given up due to the perceived pace of change.” To encourage further understanding of digital engineering, education provision through the scheme is a key focus for CIBSE. Following a membership process, engineers will have the opportunity to join a community of like-minded professionals, with access to accreditation and training.
