The Building Services industry is a multi-billion dollar part of the Australian economy that employs tens of thousands of people. Building services have been called “the systems that bring buildings to life” – these are the air conditioning, ventilation, lighting, power, water, waste and fire and life safety systems. Virtually every facet of modern life depends in one way or another on building services.
