BSRIA blue book


The Building Services Research and Information Association (BSRIA) publishes an annual databook, the ‘Blue Book’, free-to-download for BSRIA members. It is a concise publication that provides a wide range of hard-to-find facts about building services, presenting data, guidelines and other information in a format that makes them easy-to-use in the working day. It can also be purchased in hard copy, and is available as an app ensuring that users always have access to key building services information.

Steve Sansom, BSRIA’s Information & Knowledge Manager, said:

“The BSRIA Blue Book 2018 is the go-to tool for giving members and industry beneficial information quickly. I would very strongly recommend usage of this publication as the wealth of information is of immense value to anyone in the built environment and construction industries.

"This edition details all the services offered by BSRIA with key contacts of our experts. We have retained sections on building services, technical data and legislation and updated our Brexit material.”

Information in the Blue Book includes: heating degree days, solar radiation values, comfort temperature ranges, embodied energy figures, construction output data, energy consumption figures, tax rates, annual running costs, and so on.
