BESA launches guide on maintaining low occupancy buildings

THE Building Engineering Services Association (BESA) has released detailed guidance on how buildings can be managed and maintained effectively during the coming weeks and months.

The association has launched SFG30, which is a step-by-step guide on the process of maintaining critical services during the low occupancy of buildings in order to prepare for ‘rapid’ and full reactivation when business returns. Elements such as keeping water systems safe and healthy, safe handling of refrigerant gases, electrical and gas services safety checks, ventilation hygiene and ensuring fire protection systems are running will be included.

BESA said that SFG30 was made possible by its members sharing their expertise and experience. Therefore, the association said that SFG30 will be free of charge to all its members until further notice.
