It is my pleasure to provide the foreword for this edition of the Plumbing Engineering Services Design Guide. For many years now, the Institute of Plumbing has supported the construction industry on the wide range of issues that are concerned with plumbing engineering services and this design guide has been key to the success of that support.
As with other sectors of the construction industry, plumbing engineering services is an area that is rapidly developing with new, improved and innovative technologies and the role of the Institute of Plumbing in this is an important one. The Guide has needed to evolve with the advances in industry practice and techniques.
