Building Log Book consultation response required

17 June 2016

Those wishing to complete the CIBSE TM31: Building Log Book public consultation have until 8 July to respond.

Comments will be used to create an updated document to meet industry needs and support the efficient operation of buildings.

CIBSE's intention is for TM31 to be the document to support personnel managing buildings by improving their understanding of operation and running a more sustainable facility.

The document will include information on how buildings are intended to work and their servicing requirements, used as a key reference for information and performance data.

It will cover new, existing and refurbished buildings and is intended to present information in a generic and easily readable format.

BSRIA is among those supporting the consultation, with Sustainable Group manager Jo Harris stating that it coincides with further developments around business information modelling (BIM).

"The idea of of having a single volume of useful information may well get lost if we allow it to," said Ms Harris.

"The key point to remember with a building log book is that it aims to be the one document that you have that can support an operators' desire to run a building more efficiently," she said.
