Course Overview

A Building Services Engineering makes buildings work. It is a specialist branch of engineering within the construction sector. Installers, install components of large-scale industrial and commercial systems such as heating, chilled water, hot water and cold water which are used for heating workplaces such as those found in industrial and commercial buildings like office blocks, factories, schools and hospitals.

Course Highlights

Knowledge What is required
Working Safely
  • Understand safe working practices applying to themselves and others in building services engineering working environments.
Working Sustainably

 

 

 

  • Understand basic scientific principles underpinning building services engineering industrial and commercial systems including measurement, force and pressure, heat and power, materials and electricity.
  • Understand environmental protection measures within building services engineering for effective use of material resources, minimising wastage, the legislation surrounding the effective use of energy, gas and water resources.
Planning and Preparing

 

 

 

 

  • Understand how to plan and organise allocated component installation work tasks including: how to interpret instructions correctly; how to organise the sequence of activities to be undertaken; how to ensure the necessary tools and components are available as required; when and how to involve other trades; how and when to report problems.
  • Understand how to prepare work areas to undertake allocated component installation work tasks including: how to maintain safe access and egress for self and others; how to work with and alongside other trades; how and where to store tools, equipment and components to ensure safe and efficient work flow; and how to correctly identify mechanical services and electrical tool supply connections.
 Installing Components

 

 

  • Understand the basic operating principles, and basic installation, testing, pre- commissioning, commissioning and decommissioning processes of industrial and commercial cold water systems, hot water systems, heating systems, chilled water systems, compressed air and steam systems.
  • Understand how system components relate to each other within each of the industrial and commercial systems, including the assembly, positioning, orientation and fixing requirements of storage vessels, heat emitters, pressure vessels, controls.
Skills What is required
Working Safely
  • Apply relevant safety legislation, codes of practice and safe working practices to self and others in building services engineering working environments.
Planning, Preparing and Working Sustainably

 

 

 

 

  • Plan, organise and undertake the installation of industrial and commercial system components in ways which use resources effectively to complete allocatedwork tasks, effectively, safely andwith consideration to environmental impact using industry recognised practices.
  • Prepare work areas in new and existing sites to undertake allocated component installation work tasks ensuring: safe access and egress for self and others is maintained; components, tools and equipment are stored and positioned safely and to allow efficient workflow; mechanical supply services and electrical tool supply connections are correctly identified; and the need for other trades support is identified and arranged.
 Installing Components

 

 

 

  • Apply pipework fabrication, installation and jointing techniques for industrial and commercial system components to industry recognised standards. This includes prefabricated and/or modularised components and distribution systems, and including the assembly, positioning, orientation and fixing of storage vessels, heat emitters, pressure vessels, controls.
  • Undertake allocated work tasks in the testing, pre-commissioning, commissioning and decommissioning of industrial and commercial cold water systems, hot water systems, heating systems and chilled water systems.
