New CIBSE Guide B released

New CIBSE Guide B released

Guide B is one of CIBSE's most popular publications, representing a consensus on what constitutes relevant good practice guidance on the applied design of heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems.

This new version of Guide B offers a complimentary PDF download (B0: Applications and activities), that focuses on how different types of buildings, and activities within buildings, influence the choice of system.

The four additional volumes address issues relating to specific services. There are usually several possible design solutions to any situation, and the Guide does not attempt to be prescriptive but rather to highlight the strengths and weaknesses of different options.
The volumes available are:
B1: Heating
B2: Ventilation and ductwork
B3: Air conditioning and refrigeration
B4: Noise and vibration control for building services systems
All volumes are available as PDF downloads. Volumes B1-4 can also be purchased as hard copies and are available to purchase as a set at a discounted price.
