Elementa Consulting Crowned CIBSE’s 2020 Building Performance Consultancy of the Year

Elementa Consulting crowned CIBSE’s Building Performance Consultancy of the Year for the third time in four years, at the 2020 Building Performance Awards

The ballroom of the Grosvenor House Hotel, London, played host to over 500 building services engineers to celebrate and showcase a year of ground-breaking achievements in high performance building services engineering.

Building Consultancy of the Year is one of the Chartered Institute of Building Services Engineers’ most prestigious awards, recognising companies which have demonstrated an outstanding contribution to the design and refurbishment of buildings. It celebrates firms whose projects have met client expectations of performance, including occupant satisfaction, comfort and energy performance throughout their operating life. It also shines a light on company culture, employee well-being, training and progression opportunities, and working environment.

Elementa won the award in the new and fiercely competitive 51-300 employees category. This success builds upon wins in the ‘up to 100 employees’ category in 2017 and 2018, International Project of the Year in 2016, 2017 and 2018, and Building Performance Engineer of the Year in 2019.

“To receive this award for the third time in four years proves that the hard work, passion and commitment we put in everyday to our projects, initiatives and thought leadership does not go unnoticed. At Elementa we believe that success is only achievable through collaboration, which is more poignant now than ever before with the inadmissible climate emergency. We will continue to collaborate together with other firms in the construction industry to create impact and share information widely to make the change to today’s environment that future generations are relying on us to create.” Brian Goldsmith, Managing Principal

Over the past year Elementa have helped build consensus on how the buildings sector can collaborate to tackle humanity’s greatest challenges.  Elementa are founders of LETI, the London Energy Transformation Initiative, and continue to resource its critically important work. LETI recently released the Climate Emergency Design Guide, providing a roadmap for true zero carbon design. We also invested in pioneering research into whole life carbon in building services. Our World Green Building Week event on this topic was sold out, providing further impetus for our ongoing programme to delve deeper into this issue and develop actionable and achievable guidelines to share with industry.

Kevin Hydes, Chair and Founder of Integral Group, of which Elementa Consulting are a proud member, reflected on the evening’s success:

“Twelve years ago, we established Integral Group. A deep green building services practice where the mission would drive the work. That mission has led us to celebrations like this evening where our projects, staff and passion to deliver high performance projects are recognised by our chartered institute – an accolade in its highest form. As a CIBSE fellow this make me immensely proud.”
