Consulting-Specifying Engineer Top 5 most read articles online, for Apr. 13-19, covered BIM design integration, increasing transformer efficiency, the 2015 Product of the Year finalists, optimizing genset sizing, and energy performance in mission critical facilities. Link to each article below.

1. Integration: BIM design

Building information modeling (BIM) is used frequently when working across multiple disciplines, including mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection engineering, and also with other stakeholders such as architects and contractors. 

2. Increasing transformer efficiency

Transformers are fundamental components in electrical distribution systems for commercial buildings. 

3. 2015 Product of the Year finalists

Who will win gold in 2015? Consulting-Specifying Engineer announced the finalists for this year's 11th annual Product of the Year competition, and readers will have the final word. Cast your vote online today. 

4. Optimizing genset sizing

When designing generator systems, consulting engineers must ensure that the generators and the building electrical systems they support are appropriate for the specific application. 

5. Energy performance in mission critical facilities

Mission critical facilities, such as data centers, are judged carefully on their energy use. Engineers should focus on the codes and standards that dictate energy performance and how building energy performance can be enhanced. 

The list was developed using CFE Media's web analytics for stories viewed on csemag.com, April 13-19, for articles published within the last two months.
