Consulting-Specifying Engineer Top 5 most read articles online, for Apr. 20-26, covered increasing transformer efficiency, IPD and Lean in building design, the 2015 Product of the Year finalists, interpreting NFPA 72, and energy performance in mission critical facilities. Link to each article below.

1. Increasing transformer efficiency

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

2. Using IPD and Lean in building design

Consider integrated project delivery (IPD) and Lean design to provide a more streamlined engineering process and less waste. 

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. Interpreting NFPA 72

Engineers must understand how NFPA 72-2013 can be specified into commercial buildings. While the 2010 edition is just being put into practice in many jurisdictions, the changes to the 2013 code should be noted.

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 20-26, for articles published within the last two months.
