During 2001 and 2002, a completely new edition of CIBSE Guide B was published in the form of five separate ‘stand alone’ books. In 2004, the decision was taken to produce Guide B as a single volume and this publication is the result.

The technical content of this combined volume is the same as the five separate sections, with only minor editing to correct errors and to remove obvious duplication between sections. Each section retains its own introduction, following a common format, which sets down a framework for making strategic design decisions. It has been necessary to renumber section headings, tables, equations and figures for consistency within the volume. A single, coherent index has been provided.
