Introduction

60 years of making buildings better

In a changing world the BSRIA Blue Book remains one of the constants. Even
after 60 years of BSRIA our reputation of useful accurate information remains
unrivalled.

The ‘Blue’ book is instantly recognisable and sought after as it provides facts,
guidelines and information in easily digestible ‘bite sized’ chunks. It puts the I into
BSRIA and knowledge into your working day. For the first time this working ‘bible’
will be made available as an app bringing BSRIA into the fast changing IT enabled
world.

Download the app so you’re always plugged into the building services world.
Prefer the traditional hardcopy? Then just give BSRIA a call, send an email, even
send off a snail via mail and copies will appear. Make life straightforward with the
Blue Book.

Legislation
Since the publication of the Blue Book 2014 several regulations have come into effect. A further draft of changes that will affect the
industry are in prospect, and these are outlined below with their likely dates of implementation.

New legislation

Future Legislation

Construction (Design & Management) HSE ran a consultation in 2014 on the revised CDM regulations. With the consultation
Regulations (CDM) results analysed work is soon to be completed in line with normal Government
processes but the plan is to bring them into force in April 2015.

Zero carbon homes The Government ran a consultation at the end of 2014 seeking views on the government
proposals for small site exemptions for the zero carbon homes policy. With housing
being a key part of the next Government this consultation could have a big impact

Infrastructure Bill The Infrastructure Bill concluded report stage in November 2014. If the Bill is given
Royal Assent as expected in 2015 then it will include a diverse range of measures
including reform of the planning law as well as giving the right to buy stakes in local
renewable electricity generation facilities.

Maintenance KPIs

Key performance indicators


T: + 44(0)1344 465512 E: tracey.tilbry@bsria.co.uk
Overview The 10 M&E KPIs were:
The maintenance of a building is essential to supporting the • Response to reactive/breakdown maintenance
function of the business. In today’s environment managers are • Quality of planned preventative maintenance
searching for any edge that can provide them with success, and • Effectiveness of communication channels
maintenance outsourcing is one approach that is perceived to lead • Relationship with your organisation
to greater effectiveness. • Level of innovation and proactivity
• Compliance with legislative requirements
Outsourced maintenance service providers can bring best practice • Adherence to the budget
to an organisation but a client will need regular demonstration of • Management of health and safety
improvement. Measurement becomes important and adoption • Management of documentation and site operatives
of KPIs (Key performance indicators) is a powerful mechanism to • Level of overall satisfaction
monitor performance. A scale of 1 to 10 is used to score each question; a score of 8 or
more is a reflection of good performance.
BSRIA KPIs
This is the 11th year of BSRIA’s Mechanical & Electrical Maintenance Very Mostly Neither Mostly Very
KPIs. BSRIA asks building owner occupiers to assess their current Dissatisfied Dissatisfied Satisfied or Satisfied Satisfied

Maintenance KPIs
There were 173 usable responses from 17 different sectors, which
Respondents scoring 8 or more
is the largest survey response we have received. There was a 63%
private to 37% public sector split, which is more weighted towards Legislave
Compliance
the private sector than in previous years, but could be due to the
larger survey response. However the most responses to the survey Health and
were from education, financial and property management sectors, Safety
which is similar to previous years.
Reacve
Response
The M&E Maintenance KPI’s measured are illustrated in chart.
This compares the percentage of good score of 8 or more with last Relaonship
year’s results. Nearly all the KPI’s have a substantial increase in the
scores this year. Disappointingly, although still the best scoring KPI, PPM Quality
legislative compliance has seen a slight decrease.
Managing
Budgets
Half of the KPI’s have seen an increase in the mean score.
Innovation is typically a lower scoring KPI and has seen a slight Overall
decrease this year, as has site management and overall satisfaction. Sasfacon

What VAT rate applies to you?

The reduced rate (5%) of VAT still applies to conversion work that
alters the number of “single household dwellings” in a building
(e.g. the conversion of a house to flats), non-residential buildings
to residential buildings, etc. It also applies to the renovation and
alteration of household dwellings that have been empty for 2 years
or more.

Change of rate
Special rules (called anti-forestalling measures) apply where
the VAT rate changes, intended to ensure the rate change is not
circumvented. Where the VAT rate changes on a specific date, it is
only the works completed at the date of the rate change that qualify
under the previous standard rate.
