Welcome to the Heritage Group Website of the CIBSE. The Heritage Group was established in 1973 with the main purpose of discovering and recording all aspects of building engineering services history. This website aims to inform persons interested in learning about the history of the Building Engineering Services industry from its beginnings in the Industrial Revolution.



Use the Buildings with Historical Equipment link to view further webpages that list the historical engineering equipment or services already discovered in many existing buildings. A short description of the system or the equipment that was found will then be displayed.

This website is also intended to encourage and assist people to forward to, or contact the Group with details of equipment or systems that could be of interest historically to the Group and which would be worthy of recording. Use the Equipment & other Items Sought link to view the list.
