Author(s) : BSRIA, LANGMAID J.

Type of monograph: Book, Guide/Handbook


This BSRIA Guide and accompanying CD-ROM provide background information to enable a client and a professional team to engage in useful and value-adding dialogue. The document is split into two parts: Part 1 discusses many of the issues surrounding the whole-life of the proposed installation and guides clients towards the questions which must be addressed during the early stages of the project. Part 2 (on CD-ROM) deals with the definitions of building services and functional spaces. It provides look-up tables for matching functional space to building services (useful for new construction) it also matches building service to functional space (useful when dealing with refurbishment and existing facilities). Also included on the CD is a fill-in decision table primarily designed for client use. The data collected via this table is to be used by the professional team in the development of alternate options for meeting the client's business needs.
