Recap lunch lecture Valstar Simonis / Fellow FSE

The 23rd of May, Peter van Mierlo (Valstar Simonis) and Ricardo Weewer (Fellow FSE) joined us for the sixth lunch lecture of this academic year. The talks were interesting which was visible in the amount of questions the audience of around 30 students asked afterwards.

Peter van Mierlo, an alumnus of our master education and also former chairman of the 12th board, prepared a lecture about the Atlas building (which is commonly known as the main building of the TU/e campus). Valstar Simonis was involved during the renovation, developing the installations of the building. This also included all sensor equipment and the smart facade of the building.

Ricardo Weewer, a lecturer at the national fire academy and former fire fighter, prepared a lecture about fire safety and the importance of research in this topic. Buildings are changing due to regulations and sustainability which means different fire fighter techniques need to be explored and examined. Ricardo mentioned interesting experiments on small and large scale.

We would like to thank Peter van Mierlo and Ricardo Weewer for their interesting insights. Missed the speakers, or are you interested in Valstar Simonis or the Fellow FSE? More information can be found at the Mollier booth at the 2nd floor of Vertigo or ask the board.

 

Recap Lunch lecture ENGIE

The 4th of April ENGIE joined us for the fifth lunch lecture of this academic year. With around 35 people, the lecture was a big success. Elke Klaassen started with a short introduction of the company she works for. After that she told a nice story about smart grids, her part in this new concept and ‘Energy navigator’, a performance monitoring system for HVAC and other services in the build environment.

We would like to thank Elke for her interesting insights. Missed the speakers, or are you interested ENGIE? More information can be found at the Mollier booth at the 2nd floor of Vertigo or ask the board.

Recap lunch lecture Kuijpers / Nelissen

The 7th of March Kuijpers and Nelissen joined us for the fourth lunch lecture of this academic year. The expectations were around 20 people, but with 30 people in the room it was again a great success. The first lunch lecture began with Rowan de Nijs, an alumnus of our study, who explained all about his position as tender manager with Kuijpers. Within his role he coordinates different disciplines within the building engineering field and strives to win all tenders Kuijpers signed up for.

The second lunch lecture was from Nelissen. Ivo de Visser, also an alumnus, talked about an interesting building physics project called ‘het huis met de hoofden’, freely translated: ‘the house with the heads’. Interesting solutions were found for ventilation and the positioning of the technical room.

We would like to thank Rowan and Ivo for their interesting insights. Missed the speakers, or are you interested in one of the companies above? More information can be found at the Mollier booth at the 2nd floor of Vertigo or ask the board.

LunchLecture – Kuijpers / Nelissen

Right after a week of relaxing and holidays, we have a Lunch Lecture planned on March 7th! This time Kuijpers and Nelissen bv will talk to you about some interesting topics.

Kuijpers is a company focused on building services and technical installations. They design, build and maintain all sorts of technical installations in commercial buildings as well as industrial buildings. Next to this, Kuijpers is an innovative company, which shows from their ambition: “Our ambition is to achieve only zero energy and healthy systems.”

Our second speaker will be Nelissen, a company which focusses on the integration of building physics, building services and sustainability. They maintain an overall view over the project to ensure this integration and are specialised on building systems, building physics, acoustics, fire safety and sustainability. Nelissen tries to use already known technique in new ways, or as they’ve stated themselves: “We rather use simple technique in a smart way, than use high tech in the wrong way.”

Hope to see you all there!

Evaluation Lunch lecture

banner-lunchlecture_3

The 13th of December Stabiplan and BAM joined us for the third lunch lecture of this academic year. It was a great success with over 30 people in the room. The first lunch lecture began with Tim Blok, who explained the core business of Stabiplan. Stabiplan develops software for the services market, but in order to do that it also needs input form the market itself. This is where Roger Fuchs came in. Roger Fuchs gave a detailed story about his work as a product developer. Which is much more than only programming. He is the spider in the web of technology, the product, the client and has to manage all three in order to make the product future proof. The second lunch lecture was from BAM. First Matthias Weide explained BAM as a company in general, which is much more than only a construction company. All facets of the building process are represented within the company. Eva van Enk continued the presentation explaining her work with the department of Energy Systems. Projects she is working on are for example upgrading sustainable building concepts, smart grids and problem solving for clients.

We would like to thank Stabiplan and BAM for the interesting insights. More information can be found at the Mollier booth at the 2nd floor of Vertigo or ask the 21st board.
