10th February 2012
On Wednesday 08th February the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers Building Performance Awards were attended by over 750 industry peers in the sumptuous surroundings of the Great Room in London’s Grosvenor House Hotel.
The CIBSE Building Performance Awards recognise, reward and celebrate the best performance, innovation and practice in design, commissioning, construction, installation and operation of sustainable buildings and the manufacturers whose technologies enable energy efficiency.
Organised by Redactive Media Group, the awards were produced by AVT Connect for the 2nd year running and presented by Huw Edwards, best known for presenting the BBC’s 10 o’clock news, who helped make the event a night to remember.
For creative and logistical reasons AVT Connect deployed a digital media server which enables multi-layer projection of a dynamic video background onto an ultra-wide screen. Programmable and customisable sequences were used to open the show, introduce awards and provided simple but highly impactful integration between lighting and video.
Using layered video to create content for awards offers huge flexibility, enabling production teams to overcome challenges such as late amends and running order changes. AVT were able to give fast turnarounds and ease of content management ensured that the hard work and contribution of CIBSE supporters and members was highlighted to the full.
AVT Connect would like to congratulate all category winners including the University of Bradford who won two awards – the “Client of the Year” and the “Carbon Champion of the Year” for its efforts to reverse its rising energy costs and emissions and instead cut them by 8 per cent since the start of a programme in 2005.
