Edexcel BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Construction & the Built Environment - Building Services & Skills for Energy
C3087 102F

Imagine yourself in the most fabulous building in the world. Now take away the lighting, heating and ventilation, the lifts and escalators, acoustics, plumbing, power supply and energy management systems, the security and safety systems and you are left with a cold, dark, uninhabitable shell. Everything inside a building which makes it safe and comfortable to be in comes under the title of 'Building Services'.
With the current emphasis on sustainability and energy efficient buildings, building services engineers are at the cutting-edge of designing, developing and managing new environmental technologies that integrate into existing systems and services to help combat climate change.
This course provides students with an appreciation of the core building services and the associated environmental technologies and includes elements of practical work associated with building services, including mechanical and electrical services. The programme consists of 18 units delivered over two years and is the equivalent of three A-levels.

Additional Information
Assessment is by assignments which are often based on case studies or practical exercises and are largely completed in the student's own time, though some may be done in class.

Entry Requirements
Requirements are pre-defined by the College’s admission criteria

Where will this course take you
Construction: Progression can either be to full-time employment or to further study for a HNC, HND, foundation degree or honours degree in a related discipline. Building Services: With buildings creating 50% of CO2 emissions, the introduction of environmental technologies to buildings is essential if we are to meet the target of 80% reduction in CO2 emissions by 2050. No other career gives you the chance to make such an impact on saving the planet.
Students may progress to employment, a Foundation Degree in Building Services and Renewable Energies or may wish to make the move into an apprenticeship in a building services trade.
