This subject introduces students to the main building services. Building services represent a significant and growing consideration in construction projects, and this subject provides an overview of key mechanical and hydraulic services, such as ventilation, air conditioning, electrical, lifts, fire fighting, plumbing, and sewerage. This subject helps students to identify the design requirements for each of the services as proposed by the regulatory authorities and requirements, such as the National Construction Code (formerly Building Code of Australia) and Australian Standards. In particular, this subject helps students understand the impact created by associated pipes, ducts and cabling requirements on design, construction and maintenance procedures.
