CSA CONFERENCE NEW DATE - 23rd March 2021 - 15th September 2020


After careful consideration, and in light of the ongoing impact of the Coronavirus pandemic, the CSA Management Committee has made the difficult decision to further postpone the CSA’s 'Making Buildings Work' Conference, which had already been rescheduled from its original date.

The event will now take place in exactly the same format and at the same venue on Tuesday 23rd March 2021, by which time it is hoped that the public health measures and the personal sacrifices we’ve all made over the past few months will have had the desired effect, and life will have returned to some semblance of normality. This further postponement again allows for any existing engagement with the event to simply roll forward to this new March 2021 date, when the exact same event will be delivered, and supported by the same complement of Speakers and Sponsors.

Please do not hesitate to contact us should you need any further information on any aspect of this event or wish to reserve your place.  In the meantime, we can only hope that the stringent measures currently in place will not prove too onerous and that they will help bring a speedy end to these most challenging of times.

TM17 DPVC fundamentals & commissioning - now available - 25th October 2018


This Technical Memorandum is intended to explain the theory and practice of:

How Differential Pressure Control Values (DPCV) control water flow rates.  The effect on flow rates as 2 port control valves open and close.  How DPCVs are commissioned.

By understanding how a DPCV works and how flow rates can vary in zones controlled (protected) by a DPCV, the Commissioning Engineer should be better equipped to understand and interpret commissioning results in relation to DPCV systems.

Available free to CSA members as a download from the CSA Website or £24.00 to non members.  Contact the CSA office 01403 754133 e-mail:
