Building services engineering installer

Install large-scale environmental system components

A building services engineering installer makes buildings work and it is a specialist branch of engineering within the construction sector. As a building services engineering installer, you’ll train to install components of large-scale industrial and commercial systems such as heating, chilled water, hot water and cold water, used for heating workplaces. These systems operate by moving temperature-controlled water around the inside of buildings, providing heating and cooling, and utilise fossil fuels and sustainable energy systems. You’ll develop knowledge of the systems and how the components within them relate. You’ll plan allocated work tasks to install components, test them, assist in pre-commission testing and undertake any decommissioning.
