Consulting-Specifying Engineer's Top 5 most read articles online, for Aug. 29 to Sept. 5 covered MEP Giants revenue shifts, HVAC, transformer inrush current, LED for retrofit project, and challenges of mixed-use buildings. Link to each article below.

1. MEP Giants revenue shifts

The 2016 MEP Giants gross revenue increased compared to last year, most likely due to company mergers and larger and more varied projects. MEP/FP design revenue decreased.

2. HVAC codes and standards: cooling and energy efficiency

Codes and standards dictate the design of HVAC systems; however, there are ways to improve the design of nonresidential buildings to achieve maximum energy efficiency.

3. Managing increased transformer inrush current

The Department of Energy's 2016 efficiency standards change transformer efficiency requirements.

4. Is an LED right for your next retrofit project?

Building owners are asking lighting designers and electrical engineers to help them save on energy costs, and replacing fluorescent, HID, or other lights with LEDs is in high demand.

5. Facing the challenges of mixed-use buildings

Fulfilling the demands of a mixed-use facility can be challenging, considering the structure's diverse components. Here, professionals with experience on such projects share advice and explain how to end up with positive results for specialty buildings and HVAC systems.

The list was developed using CFE Media's web analytics for stories viewed on csemag.com, Aug. 29 - Sept. 5, for articles published within the last two months.
