Building Services deliver the comfort, security, safety, communication, protection, movement and control that tenant’s need in their buildings. Without these different systems, the modern Built Environment would simply not function. The correct management, operation and maintenance of these Building Services systems is therefore crucial.
This course begins by examining different Building Services systems and the crucial role they play in making properties work. The course then explores the 14 categories of Building Services to understand different systems and their maintenance requirements. As the course progresses, common maintenance terminology and the procurement of maintenance services are also discussed.
This unique course is based on several highly respected guidance publications: SFG20 - The standard maintenance specification for Building Services; BSRIA BG66/2016 - A guide to best practice procurement of maintenance contracts; CIBSE GVM14 - Maintenance engineering and management; and NRM 3 - Order of cost estimating and cost planning for building maintenance works.
