Daikin has more future thoughts

29558131_sUK: Daikin UK has released a timetable for its next series of CPD-accredited Future Thinking seminars.

Aimed at building services engineers and consultants, the seminars have been developed by Daikin and are supported by BRE Group keynote speakers.

The Future Thinking programme is created to encourage those who work in building services to deepen their insight into the issues that will affect the industry in the coming years.

The new seminars scheduled for February and March will explore BREEAM in depth. Engineers will learn about the hallmarks and application of the new BREEAM scheme for Non-Domestic Refurbishment and Fit out, launched in October last year.

The sessions will be hosted by Daikin’s specification team, which includes five BREEAM accredited professionals, together with expert guest speakers from BRE Group. So the seminars will give attendees a forum to discuss BREEAM with professionals from across the heating and cooling community.

All sessions are scheduled to take place between 6.30pm and 9.30pm on these days and at these venues:

Birmingham, Hotel Du Vin, February 12
Southampton, Grand Harbour Hotel, February 19
London, Malmaison, Charterhouse Square, February 25
Cardiff, Cardiff Marriott Hotel, February 26
Manchester, Manchester Hilton, March 5
London, The Soho Hotel, March 26
Glasgow, Blythswood Square Hotel, March 26
