The president of the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers believes that there will be "life after Brexit".
Responding to the referendum result in which a majority of the British electorate voted to leave the EU, John Field looked on the brighter side.
He said: "We do not anticipate any significant alteration in the very positive engagement we maintain with members across the globe and suggest that the referendum result creates significant opportunities and commitments to increase engagement with regional, national and global interests."
Field added that CIBSE was planning for life after the Brexit vote "with the firm belief that our strong professional leadership remains the base on which the interests of our members and the public they serve can best be supported".
Meanwhile, research firm Green Street Advisors LLC projected that London office building values could fall as much as 20 per cent within three years of Britain leaving the EU.
