BSRIA to stage new building services course

BSRIA has issued a new one-day industry course, Building Services Explained, aimed at people who manage, operate, or maintain buildings.

Mike Lee, training manager at BSRIA.

With a focus on delegate participation, the interactive course will run at both BSRIA’s headquarters in Bracknell and at BSRIA North in Preston.

It commences with an overview of building services and leads into a discussion of the 14 categories of building services, including electrical, mechanical, fire protection, water, heating, air conditioning and security systems.

In addition to accounting for over 30 percent of the construction cost of a property, building services have a profound impact on different aspects of building performance such as usability, personal comfort, energy consumption, maintenance and utilities costs and business continuity.

The course will explain the importance of building services to facilities managers and their clients, and is based on the RICS New Rules of Measurement (NRM), the BSRIA Building Services Job Book and Rules of Thumb for Building Services.

Mike Lee, BSRIA training manager, said: “This fantastic new course is designed to be an interactive learning experience, rather than a lecture. Individual and group exercises include categorising different items from project photographs and drawings, marking-up building services schematics and layouts and answering multiple choice questions about building services systems.

“This course is written from the perspective of people that manage, operate and maintain buildings. It uses scenarios, procedures, documents, drawings, images and videos that these facilities management professionals will be familiar with. Movie clips and props such as a human torso are also used to illustrate key learning points

“The staging of this new course at its BSRIA North offices demonstrates BSRIA’s training commitment to the northern powerhouse. I urge members and industry alike to book on now.”

Developed by Glenn Hawkins, who will be the lecturer, the course will be beneficial to anyone who manages, operates and maintains buildings, including estate managers, facilities managers, building managers, premises managers, maintenance managers, maintenance engineers, project managers, contracts managers, commercial managers, asset managers, energy managers, energy assessors, and built environment and real estate graduates.

Building Services Explained is taking place on Thursday 06 September at 09:00am at BSRIA Bracknell, and Wednesday 12 September at 09:00am at BSRIA North, Preston.
