Broaden your knowledge and skills

We want to help architects, consultants and contractors to improve, maintain and broaden their knowledge and skills by offering free industry relevant CPD seminars as well as participating in the CIBSE Continuing Professional Development Programme.

Hybrid lighting, sustainability and wellbeing - CIBSE online CPD module

Monodraught published a CPD module in the CIBSE Lighting Supplement (December 2015). The module focuses on hybrid lighting, sustainability and wellbeing. It explores the evolution of lighting systems and the impact of hybrid systems on the built environment and energy costs in multiple sectors from healthcare through to education.

Natural cooling and ventilation for improved building sustainability and healthier occupants - CIBSE online CPD module

Monodraught published a CPD module in the CIBSE Journal (July 2016). The module explores the use of phase-change materials in ventilation systems to reduce a building’s energy consumption and carbon footprint.

While traditional air conditioning systems are likely to offer more accurate temperature (and humidity) control, PCM-based natural cooling and ventilation can be beneficial through reducing energy consumption while supplying ventilation air for a building.

Case studies – including the one referred to in this CPD – have shown that energy costs of such systems can be relatively low, while CO2 and temperature levels are also kept within the required limits.

Natural, hybrid and mechanical Ventilation, thermal comfort and IAQ in schools - CIBSE accredited

This CPD covers the benefits of natural, hybrid and mechanical ventilation to achieve high indoor air quality in schools. Monodraught outlines ventilation strategies and systems that reliably meet requirements for thermal comfort and energy efficiency. It also showcases building simulation tools like IES or BIM modules and presents case studies where natural ventilation, natural cooling and hybrid ventilation contributed to create healthier classrooms.

Hybrid ventilation for schools - CIBSE online CPD module

Hybrid ventilation can support the requirement to build schools and classrooms in a more modular or standardised approach. It is suitable for schools that are looking for a cost-effective ventilation solution that fulfils building regulation requirements. This is provided in a way that is sustainable and good for the environment whilst supporting learners with a fresh environment.

Predicting and delivering good building IAQ using natural ventilation - CIBSE online CPD module

This module explores how natural ventilation can be used to maintain indoor air quality, and its application for school buildings.  Building performance is a necessary function for planning and sustainability, however whilst Facility Managers may be well versed in how to control the environment in the building, building users may have conflicting requirements and systems may not always perform as intended.

Determining thermal comfort in naturally conditioned buildings - CIBSE online CPD module

Considers newer methods of assessing the comfort of occupants in naturally conditioned buildings, and explores how this relates to the current standards for evaluating thermal comfort.  The article was developed from a paper by Professor Sue Roaf, director at Low Carbon Cities Initiative.
