The Chartered Institute of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) has published guide to help facilities management engineers ensure sanitary water quality.  The updated Guide is called ‘Guide G: Public Health and Plumbing Engineering (CIBSE Guide G) NEW 2014’ and puts a greater emphasis on sustainability.


CIBSE GUIDE G is available to purchase here.

This third edition of CIBSE Guide G has been produced by CIBSE in collaboration with the Chartered Institute of Plumbing and Heating Engineering (CIPHE), and this is reflected in its new title: Public health and plumbing engineering. It represents a complete revision of the previous edition plus the addition of new chapters. It has been updated to reflect recent changes to both water and sanitation standards within the UK, including developments in codes overseas.

The purpose of CIBSE Guide G: Public health and plumbing engineering is to provide guidance to practitioners involved in water systems. In addition to its core readership of public health designers and installers, it should also be of interest to architects and authorities who, whilst not directly concerned with public health engineering, need to understand the advice offered to them by specialists.  The Guide will also be of great value to students embarking on a career or practising engineers and technicians who wish to enhance their knowledge through continuing professional development.

Since the second edition of CIBSE Guide G was published, there have been various amendments to the Building Regulations, British Standards and the introduction of new codes which have heavily influenced the content of this new edition.  The emphasis on water conservation and sustainability has had a significant impact on the guide and the British Standard relating to both building and site drainage and water services has been updated and superseded by a BS EN which also has affected many chapters.

Contents include a section on water services and utilities which we think our readers will find of interest:

  • Cold water supply
  • Water treatment
  • Cold water systems
  • Hot water systems
  • Pipework design
  • Underground pipework
  • Legionnaires’ disease
  • System maintenance & Operation
