Course description

Building Services Explained

Building services, such as heating, air conditioning, power, lighting, water, fire protection, security and communication systems, bring a building to life, enabling businesses to function and allowing occupants to flourish.

This course explains the different types of building services and the role that they play. It shows how all building services systems are composed in the same way. A journey is then taken through the 14 categories of building services to explain the different systems within each category.

The course is based on the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors' New Rules of Measurement (NRM), together with two highly respected BSRIA publications authored by course leader Glenn Hawkins: the BSRIA Building Services Job Book and Rules of Thumb for Building Services.
