Welcome from the chairman
Session 1: BEST PRACTICE
Designing Emergency Lighting for the 21st Century
Speakers: David Mooney of Atkins
Touching on recent examples David will cover the design of emergency lighting schemes now and in the future. He will examine design standards, regulations and legislation's. What are the responsibilities of the client, designer and installer and how can we design with future technologies?
The common pitfalls with emergency lighting compliance
Speakers: Robin Kemp of Advanced
There are a surprising number of common ways organisations and companies could be in breach of emergency lighting and fire regulations. Here our expert outlines your obligations
In 2016, the concept of stay-put lighting, as a complementary option to emergency lighting, was recognised in the regulations. In this session, we’ll look at what it is and how it could work for you in your buildings.
Coffee, exhibition and networking
Panel discussion: Standards and specifications post-Grenfell
Speakers: Alan Daniels of P4, Paul Meenan of TfL
What are the implications of the fire in Grenfell Tower for owners, specifiers and suppliers of emergency lighting systems? How will the tragedy effect the specification, standards, installation and inspection of such equipment? Our panelists explore the issues.
The benefits of requiring BAFE SP203-4 registration from your suppliers
Speakers: Chris Auger of BAFE
An increasing number of organisations – including the Ministry of Defence – require the suppliers of an emergency lighting system to be third party certified and registered to BAFE – What is the rationale for this requirement?
Wireless control systems –- the challenges and opportunities
Speakers: Andy Davies of Harvard
Wireless control and communication provides many obvious advantages over traditional hard-wired systems, especially in heritage interiors and buildings with suspected asbestos. But what are the concerns and what are the security implications?
Lunch, exhibition and networking
Session 2: CONTROLS
Why you should use controls with emergency lighting
Speakers: Jeremy Turner of FAB Controls
You’ve got a BMS or lighting control system. You’ve got an emergency lighting network. How do you integrate them? What are the particular issues with a Dali-based control system? Our expert explains how to get on top of your system.
Case study: Northwick Park Hospital
Speakers: Alan Daniels of P4, Alastair Burleigh Alfor Fire Safety Services
Looking at Northwick Park Hospital, senior fire engineer, Alastair Burleigh will give an overview of the recent installation of the latest emergency lighting. This will be followed by a Q&A with both Alastair and Alan Daniels of P4 to discuss the challenges and solutions.
Session 3: REAL WORLD APPLICATION
Case study: Leeds University
Speakers: Steve Saville of Eaton
We look in depth at the recent installation of the latest emergency lighting technology for the estates and facilities department of a major university. We look at the brief, the challenges and how the solution was arrived at.
Coffee, exhibition and networking
Case Study: Global bank
Speakers: Russ Sharer of Fulham
This bank upgraded over 3,000 of its branches to LED during 2016. The specification of LED tubes meant a challenge for the effective integration of the emergency lighting. Here Russ Sharer of Fulham outlines how a satisfactory solution was found.
Panel Discussion: Emergency lighting’s role in the IoT
Speakers: Alan Daniels of P4, Andy Davies of Harvard, Dave Henderson of Advanced, David Wright of ELP, Gary Van Blerk of Store Maintenance, Paul Meenan of TfL
Industry experts are predicting that the lighting will soon be part of the so-called ‘Internet of Things’ where various services in buildings communicate and are controlled via an Internet-Protocol network. Emergency lighting is well placed to benefit from this trend and in theory this could make the monitoring and regular testing of the installation easier. Our panel debates the merits of IoT-connected emergency lighting.
Networking drinks reception
Delegates, sponsors and the team from Lux will discuss the day’s deliberations and network over drinks in this special debriefing party.
