BSRIA, specifications guide for building services

BSRIA’s latest revision of is ‘Model format for building services specifications’ (BG56/2016) is a joint venture with CIBSE and BESA (Building Engineering Services Association). It provides a model format for building-services specifications that will aid efficiency and understanding for all parties involved in preparing and using specifications.

In this age of BIM, it is easy to forget that the specifications are a crucial part of the information used during construction projects. They should clearly describe what systems are to provide and how they are intended to be operated once installed.

This latest guide has tables for Uniclass 2015, the classification structure prescribed by the Government for use on BIM Level 1, and its inclusion here should help understanding of its use in building-services applications.

Catherine England, BSRIA’s marketing officer, says, ‘Specifications which are inaccurate can lead to confusion and exacerbate difficulties in the commercial and contractual process. This guide aims to ensure specifications are written in such a way as to be readily understandable by the user.’
