CIBSE updates Guide H on building controls

25 February 2009

Three key changes in building controls have been incorporated in an updated Guide H from Chartered Institute of Building Control Engineers. The changes cover current sustainability issues, major developments in the Building Regulations, and developments in building control networks.

Guide H: Building Control Systems from CIBSE is a key document for anybody working in the areas of building design, construction and maintenance as it provides the necessary information to enable control system requirements to be met.

Good and reliable controls are vital for the safe and efficient operation of modern buildings. A control system needs to ensure the inside of a building is comfortable for all occupants, and it must keep the HVAC plant operating efficiently, as well as being capable of two-way communication with the personnel charged with its operation. The complexity of the many control systems available varies, but whatever the structure and size of a property, good controls maximise energy conservation and reduce harmful emissions.

Guide H covers all the key areas without relying too heavily on mathematical formulas, making it easy-to-read and accessible to all professions related to the design, construction and maintenance of a building. The Guide aims to provide readers with an understanding of modern controls systems so that they have the knowledge to chose the proper control system for their building, and ensure that it is installed, commissioned and maintained properly.

CIBSE Guide H: Building Control Systems (ISBN 13: 978-1-906846-00-8) is available for £37.00 (member), £75.00 (non-member) tel: 020 8675 5211
