What is a CIBSE TM31 Logbook

Log books provide a simple, easily accessible summary of a new or refurbished building rather than the detail contained in O & M manuals.

The Building Regulations* now require building log books. They will improve access to information for Facilities Managers (FMs) or others responsible for managing buildings, enabling them to improve the operation of their buildings. Specifically, they provide a place to record ongoing building energy performance, which should help improve energy efficiency.

Using log books should improve the understanding, management and operation of buildings resulting in lower running costs and reduced carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions to the atmosphere. This should also contribute to improved occupant comfort, satisfaction and productivity.
