Consulting-Specifying Engineer Top 5 most read articles online, for Dec. 7-13, covered protective devices in mission critical facilities, taking BIM to the next level, the value of an engineer, HVAC fans and smoke control, and dedicated outdoor air systems. Link to each article below.

1. Coordinating protective devices in mission critical facilities

A coordination study ensures that the most reliable electrical system has been installed. Applicable codes and standards help engineers get it right.

2. Taking BIM to the next level 

Electrical engineers are being pushed toward using BIM.

3. How much are you worth? 

Consulting engineers share information about compensation, job satisfaction, and business development via a national salary survey. 

4. Integration: HVAC fans and smoke control

Fire, life safety, and HVAC systems must be integrated by the engineer to achieve reliability in smoke control systems. This includes mechanical equipment, physical barriers, or a combination of both.

5. Automation and controls for HVAC systems

Here are some best practices for designing building automation systems (BAS) and controls for HVAC systems.

The list was developed using CFE Media's web analytics for stories viewed on csemag.com, December 7-13, for articles published within the last two months.
