Building Services Engineering makes buildings work. It is a specialist branch of engineering within the construction sector. Installers, install components of large-scale industrial and commercial systems such as heating, chilled water, hot water and cold water which are used for heating workplaces such as those found in industrial and commercial buildings like office blocks, factories, schools and hospitals. These engineering systems operate by moving temperature controlled water around the inside of buildings, providing heating and cooling, and utilise fossil fuels and sustainable energy systems.
Installers have a basic knowledge of the systems and how the components within systems relate to each other. They also, under close but not constant supervision:
• Plan allocated work tasks to install system components;
• Undertake allocated work tasks in testing system components;
• Assist in pre-commission testing;
• Undertake allocated work tasks in de-commissioning systems
