Overview

This guide has been superseded by a second edition, BG 55/2018.

Space, and the cost of providing space, for plant and building services distribution is at a premium and designers often come under pressure to reduce the spatial requirements for building services installations. In order to discharge their obligations, designers must take considerable care to provide safe means of access for installation, maintenance and equipment replacement. This guide is intended for use by designers and provides guidance on designing for safety for both new build and refurbishment projects.

A free download of an editable design considerations checklist is provided in Excel format. It is also attached to the pdf of this publication.

The guide includes information on:
• Relevant legislation including CDM
• Hazards and risks
• Space requirements and access provision
• Maintenance
• Plant room design
• Communication
