CIBSE has revealed its publishing plan for the first quarter of 2024. It will issue two TM65 guides on embodied carbon in building services, an Applications Manual on security engineering, and three Digital Engineering Series publications covering pre-qualification questionnaires, employer’s information requirements and BIM execution plans.

Full details of the publications are:
● Security engineering: Strategy (AM4.1)
● Embodied carbon in building services: logistics (TM65.x)
● Embodied carbon in building services: A calculation methodology for the United Arab Emirates (TM65UAE)

The Digital Engineering Series:
● Pre-qualification questionnaires
● Employer’s information requirements
● BIM execution plans.

The Institution is seeking volunteers to beta test digital web tools.

Current tools in the testing phase are: pipe-sizing calculator: public health; embodied carbon calculator; and air-cleaning calculator.

Volunteers are also being sought to author and review guidance in the following areas: smart buildings; air quality; climate change risk and services; and electrical loads and power densities, including the electrification of heat and electric vehicle charging.
