Session 18, Paper 4, CIBSE ASHRAE Technical Symposium, Dublin, Ireland 3-4 April 2014
It is essential to consider all elements of building services in the context of the building as new build, refurbishment or repair and maintenance. The paper describes the building procurement process and the way in which building services fit in. The Teambuild competition and the team build process of training young professionals is described, offered across the whole industry to graduates and to university students. The vital need for each part to appreciate and to fit into all other parts of the building procurement industry is defined. Teaching methods based on technology and context are proposed. In particular the way in which young engineers are prepared for qualification in their own and sister disciplines is reviewed.
