Building Services Systems

Building Services Systems control the environment in and outside the building and make buildings comfortable, environmentally pleasurable and safer to be in or to visit. They are designed to control services such as Mechanical Ventilation and Air Conditioning (MVAC), Lighting, Fire Protection, Lifts, Water Supply, Waste Management and Building Automation among others.        

Building Services Systems can account for some 30-40% of a building’s capital costs and attract the same extent of a building’s total operating and maintenance costs per annum, mainly in energy costs which can make up 50% carbon emissions. The operations and maintenance of building services systems are by and large regulated due to energy conservation and safety concerns should the systems fail to perform due to lack of maintenance.

The course will provide fundamental knowledge on Building Services Systems commonly found in high rise buildings. It will cover the following aspects of each system and will benefit those who need a working knowledge of the systems for procuring and managing facilities maintenance work.

  • System Functional Overview
  • Components of the System and How They Work
  • Regulatory Requirements and Standards
  • Life Spans, Common Defects & Maintenance
