"Access to Building Services Engineering Level 1 and 2, Edition 2012" is a textbook designed to provide foundational knowledge and practical skills for individuals interested in pursuing a career in building services engineering. Building services engineering encompasses various systems within a building, such as heating, ventilation, air conditioning, plumbing, lighting, and electrical systems. This textbook is tailored for students at the entry levels (Level 1 and 2) of their studies, focusing on fundamental concepts and introductory skills.
It covers the following areas:
1. Introduction to Building Services Engineering:
The book provides an overview of the building services engineering industry, its importance in construction, and the various systems and components involved.
2. Basic Engineering Principles:
Fundamental engineering principles related to mechanics, thermodynamics, and electricity might be covered. These principles provide the basis for understanding building services systems.
3. Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) Systems:
Introduction to HVAC systems, including principles of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning. This section covers basic heat transfer, types of heating systems, ventilation requirements, and introductory air conditioning concepts.
4. Plumbing and Sanitary Systems:
Basic plumbing principles, including water supply, drainage, and sanitation, could be discussed. This section covers plumbing fixtures, piping systems, and regulations related to sanitary installations.
5. Electrical Systems:
Introduction to electrical systems in buildings, covering basic concepts of electricity, electrical wiring, lighting systems, and safety regulations.
6. Construction Drawings and Diagrams:
Understanding technical drawings, schematics, and diagrams commonly used in building services engineering. This section includes interpretation of plans and symbols.
7. Health and Safety in Building Services Engineering:
Focus on safety protocols and regulations relevant to building services engineering work environments. This includes personal protective equipment (PPE), hazard identification, and safe working practices.
8. Practical Skills and Hands-on Exercises:
Practical exercises and hands-on activities related to building services systems. This includes basic installation tasks, troubleshooting scenarios, and practical demonstrations.
9. Sustainability and Energy Efficiency:
Introduction to sustainable practices and energy-efficient solutions in building services engineering. This section covers topics like renewable energy sources, energy conservation, and environmentally friendly technologies.
10. Case Studies and Real-life Examples:
Case studies and real-life examples from building services engineering projects. These examples provide practical insights into the application of concepts and skills in real-world scenarios.
