We would love for Signify and the industry at large to continue to innovate and offer solutions that can help keep the environment around users clean.’’

In it’s 15th year, the awards recognise the people, products and projects that demonstrate engineering excellence in the built environment. The CIBSE BPAs are the only industry awards that focus on actual, measured performance outcomes, and not just design intent or performance specifications. Entries to the awards were open to any organisation, both within the UK and internationally, that is responsible for the design, commissioning, construction, installation and operation of low energy buildings and the manufacturers whose products enable efficient energy consumption.

    It is a matter of great pride and honour for us that our product has been recognised as an innovative solution for air quality."
