Were you out last week? You can catch up here.Consulting-Specifying Engineer's top 5 most read articles online, for February 13-19, covered ASHRAE 90.1 success tips, understanding NFPA 101, efficiency standards for HVAC system design, choosing modular data center, and IECC updates. Link to each article below.

1. Five steps to success with ASHRAE 90.1

ASHRAE Standard 90.1: Energy Standard for Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings is one of the main drivers used in any building design. Read the top five best practices for engineers to understand the key elements of this standard.

2. Understanding NFPA 101 for mission critical facilities

NFPA 101: Life Safety Code 2015 is a reference used for strategies to protect people based on building construction, protection, and occupancy features that minimize the effects of fire and other related hazards. It is the only document that covers life safety for new and existing structures. It is vital to understand the electrical/power systems in mission critical facilities and best practices.

3. Know efficiency standards for HVAC system design

Education and diligent analysis will help engineers navigate new U.S. Department of Energy pump-efficiency rules.

4. How to choose a modular data center

Modular data centers can be cost-effective, scalable options. There are several variables to consider, however, when comparing them to brick-and-mortar facilities.

5. Understanding the impact of IECC updates on lighting controls

The International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) is revised periodically to stay up-to-date on current technology and practices. Interior lighting plays an impactful role in the electricity usage of commercial buildings, and the 2012 IECC recognizes this by including various major updates to lighting control systems for energy conservation.

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