TM40 Health and wellbeing in building services


Consideration of building users’ health and comfort has always been fundamental to the role of building services engineers. In recent years, trends including rising life expectancy, a rise in chronic non-communicable diseases and significant advances in knowledge and solutions have highlighted the significant role of the built environment as part of public health prevention approaches to public health prevention and improving our wellbeing, comfort and cognitive performance.

This has prompted a revision of Technical Memorandum 40, first published in 2006. This is a comprehensive update and the resulting guidance will be published soon.
