AGENDA

1.INTRODUCTION


2.YOUR MEMBERSHIP
It’s important for you know what BESA is doing on your behalf to demonstrate the value of your Association membership.
Jason Hemingway, BESA Membership Director will update members on the region.  


3.INDOOR AIR QUALITY
It is estimated that we spend around 90% of our time indoors in the UK. The pandemic has thrown attention onto the ventilation sector and finally made it visible – but how do we ensure the levels of ventilation are adequate?

BESA have set up indoor air quality (IAQ) monitors in their offices and Graeme Fox, BESA Head of Technical will discuss the results and what they mean for buildings and business longer term.

4.RAISING THE ALARM ABOUT DAMPER TESTING
Building owners, managers and occupiers are becoming increasingly aware of the importance of comprehensive fire safety risk assessments in the wake of the Grenfell tragedy and imminent changes to legislation.
Peter Rogers, BESA Technical Consultant will update members on the BESA technical guidance for Fire and Smoke Damper Maintenance, which is widely available to support the industry’s efforts to improve the overall safety of buildings.


5. YOUR REGION – AN OPEN DISCUSSION
The Regional meetings are driven by Members for Members and this is your opportunity to discuss with your peers the local or national issues affecting your Region. This part of the meeting is treated confidentially to enable you to share your own experiences within the sector or to raise any specific concerns you may have.
