CIBSE Guide B
The Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) has published new guidance on heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration in the latest edition of their 'Guide B'.

​The new edition is is bigger and includes revisions on noise and vibration control, and new legislation. There is a new chapter, B0, which covers designing different building functions. The chapter is ideal for new engineers, or more experienced engineers new to the topic.

The CIBSE Guide B was last updated in 2005 and is one of the organisation's main publications. The guide provides practical help for designing HVAC systems.

Chair of the Guide B Steering Committee, Roger Hitchin said:
​“We are delighted to be able to release this comprehensive update to Guide B, which has required years of stringent work as one of CIBSE’s most important guides to one of its core areas of expertise.

“The inclusion of Part 0 to the new Guide has been driven by changes we have seen in the industry, which has seen more and more engineers join building services from other disciplines or more general engineering degrees. The intention is to make this transition easier and to make their future work more effective by helping them to understand the issues created by different contexts, and their relevance to HVAC design.”
