The impact of building services on the environment and why engineers must make resource efficiency a priority
CIBSE Journal Supplement launched at Ecobuild 2014 summarising the CIBSE / WRAP work with industry on Resource Efficiency of Building Services and the development of a CIBSE Technical Memorandum due to be launched in April 2014.
'The business case for resource efficiency of building services focuses predominantly on:
• Reducing capital and life-cycle costs, price volatility and project risk, which helps hedge against future danger of material shortages
• Demonstrating compliance with regulations and standards
• Addressing the project brief or tender requirements.'
