Introduction
Building service is one of the important parts for a building because it will make a building to function well. Building service is responsible for the design, installation, and operation and monitoring of the mechanical, electrical and public health systems required for the safe, comfortable and environmentally friendly operation of modern buildings. Modern technology of building service can make a building to become more safety or more comfortable. While building developers are increasingly being asked to analyze and improve building security, developing technologies assisting engineers in the pursuit of safe working environments couldn't have better timing. Hence, innovation of new building service is important so that the level of safety and comfortable can be increases. Building services influence the architecture of a building and play a significant role on the sustainability and energy demand of a building. Within building services engineering, new roles are emerging, for example in the areas of renewable energy, sustainability, low carbon technologies and energy management. With buildings accounting for around 50% of all carbon emissions, building services engineers play a significant role in combating climate change. As such, a typical building services engineer has a wide-ranging career path. Communication lines, telephones and IT networks (ICT) also make an important role in building service, and the modern technology for the ICT is fiber optics that makes use of fiber optics than normal internet cable, hence this can hugely increases the speed of internet because fibers are used instead of metal wires because signals travel along them with less loss and are also immune to electromagnetic interference. Fibers are also used for illumination, and are wrapped in bundles so they can be used to carry images, thus allowing viewing in tight spaces. Due to the environment change in society, the comfort level and safety in nowadays on a building...
