SSUD71-309: Building Services

Description

This subject provides an introduction to building services which include electrical, mechanical (HVAC), hydraulics, fire protection and vertical transportation services for medium to large scale, multi-storey buildings. Conventional and alternative systems will be explored with students able to identify, after this subject, the appropriate services to a particular building. Students will be required to undertake investigations of systems and buildings.
