EngD Student Ana Rodrigues-Arguelles completed the Building Services Explained CPD course run by CIBSE.
The three day course is aimed at those involved in building maintenance and management. It covers services found in large building complexes, such as heating and cooling systems, looking at how to use them efficiently and how they fit within a building. It also explained the considerable impact electrical and renewable systems have on a building’s energy use. A section on Maintenance and Legislation was incorporated to highlight the importance of regular maintenance and keeping up to date with current building legislation.
