Updating Training and education never stops! Even the most qualified person needs to learn about changing technology, improved materials and methods, and about changing regulations. Electrical and gas installation and structural engineering are areas where it is obviously dangerous unless people have up-todate qualifications. Everyone in the industry needs updated knowledge and the various organisations run courses at all levels for different sectors in construction and the built environment. Many professional bodies require their members to undertake a minimum number of hours of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) so that they can continue as reliable and credible practitioners.

This section gives an introduction to the conditions and measurements which help to define human comfort. These conditions are a starting point for the study of the building engineering services that help to maintain comfort. Comfort factors Thermal Air quality Sound Lighting Thermal comfort The thermal comfort of humans depends on factors which vary from person to person. The heat produced by food energy in the body has to be lost at the best rate to keep the body at constant temperature. The amount of heat produced by a person depends on personal variables of body chemistry, body size, age, gender, type of activity and clothing.
