What’s new from 2013?
The 2013 revisions go some way towards clarifying a number of areas of potential ambiguity that have existed to date, as well as having been tested to meet the relevant European standards for the first time.
Perhaps most significantly, the standard further embraces the use of digital construction techniques including Building Information Modelling (BIM) and CAD CAM. DW144 emphasises the role of the ductwork contractor in the design process with the potential benefit of simplifying the end construction process.
For further information, take a look at the article New DW144 will galvanise ductwork industry which appeared in the B&ES BOOK 2014 by Bob Lane, chairman of the B&ES Ductwork Group.
