This new guide BG32/2014 replaces BG5/2005 Illustrated Guide to Electrical Building Services and provides basic reference information on electrical building services systems for construction clients and professionals in other areas of the industry. 

Since the previous edition of this guide, further information has been added on circuit breakers, motor controllers, on-site generation, power quality, standby generators, plugs & sockets, and temporary supplies for construction sites.

For construction clients, this guide provides an insight into the main system options and can assist dialogue with the design team.
