The Duke of York visited BSRIA, Reading on 13th April, 2015 to celebrate their 60th Anniversary.
BSRIA (Building Services Research and Information Association) is a test, instruments, research and consultancy organisation, providing specialist services in construction.
HRH was given an overview of the consultancy and research work BSRIA undertake and how this has delivered improvement in the Built Environment. The Duke then moved onto the BSRIA Library, which is considered to be one of the largest dedicated Building Services libraries in Europe with over 80,000 entries.
Next, HRH saw a “fan rover” used for airtightness testing whilst hearing of the history and development of their use in checking building envelope integrity. The Duke saw a number of instruments being calibrated including BSRIA’s new infrared test rig in the BSRIA Instrument Solutions calibration test labs.
HRH then toured the BSRIA product test labs where he saw a wide range of equipment being tested.
