The Construction Information Service database provides access to building regulations, technical guides, reports, briefings and industry news from professional bodies related to UK building regulations, construction management and building design (incl. BSIRA, CIBSE, CIOB, CIRIA, RIBA, TRADA, etc.).
This database has recently moved to a new platform. After authenticating with your QUB credentials, please complete the consent form for your details to be shared with the supplier.
Please note: British Standards are listed in the Construction Information Service database, but the documents are not included. You can access these standards via the British Standards Online database. Check the "Standards and Eurocodes" tab of this guide for more information.
You can also access recent volumes of the Architects' Journal via the Construction Information Service database.
You can access JCT contracts online via the Construction Information Service database.
After logging in, please ensure that you click on the option to view "The Construction Information Service - CIS" rather than any of the other available options. Then type in JCT and search.
