ASHRAE Guideline 1.4P open for public review

A proposed guideline that will establish a uniform procedure for transmitting design, construction, testing, and operational information to building owners and operators is open for public comment.

05/07/2013


ASHRAE has opened public review on and comment on Guideline 1.4P, which is designed to establish a uniform procedure for transmitting design, construction, testing, and operational information for building owners and operators.

Guideline 1.4P, The Systems Manual for Facilities, provides procedures for producing a systems manual as a resource for training, operations, maintenance and upgrading of facilities. The guideline applies to information from planning, commissioning process, design, construction, testing, and training activities and operations planning for new, renovated and existing facilities, equipment, and assemblies.

ASHRAE Standard 202P, Commissioning Process for Buildings and Systems and other ASHRAE guidelines on commissioning require development of a systems manual, as do several other standards and energy- and sustainability-related codes. However, no document or guideline outlines how to assemble a systems manual to current requirements. Guideline 1.4P is designed to provide these procedures, according to Gerald Kettler, chair of the Guideline 1.4P committee.

The proposed guideline is open for an advisory public review until June 2, 2013. To read the guideline or to submit comments, visit ASHRAE's public reviews page here.
