About this Course:

CIBSE ANZ Mechanical Services Training is a four-day course that forms part of a new building services series of face-to-face training that is launching in Australia and New Zealand.

This course introduces Mechanical Services as a core discipline within building services engineering. This includes an overview of what Mechanical Services are, their importance and design, and the vitality of how they integrate into the overarching building and construction process.

Learning outcomes:

On completion of this course you will have an understanding of the following:

  • Statutory, Cost and Technical considerations for Mechanical Services design and component selection
  • minimum standard requirements and best practices in Mechanical Services design
  •  key components of the mechanical plant and systems
  • the complexities and interrelatedness of Mechanical Services and other building services, which ensure/reflect a people-first approach, over a building-first mindset.
  • key aspects of Mechanical Services including Ventilation, Fire and Smoke Control, Commissioning, Maintenance, Controls, Noise and Vibration. 
  • the importance of focusing on the comfort, health, wellbeing, and safety of the people who might occupy the building, and the appropriateness of the sustainability strategy in relation to those people.
