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.
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.”
