Consulting-Specifying Engineer Top 5 most read articles online, for Aug. 31-Sep. 6, covered waste heat recovery, PV system fundamentals, MEP Giants revenue and M&A, commissioning commercial buildings, and fire detection and notification. Link to each article below.
Waste heat recovery systems are increasingly used in mixed-use buildings to move waste heat from laboratories, data centers, or industrial activities to provide beneficial heating in other parts of the building.
Photovoltaic (PV) systems are one of the best options for on-site power generation. Commercial buildings must generate power as we move forward with the AIA 2030 challenge, net zero energy, and other energy efficiency programs.
The 2015 MEP Giants revenue ticked up slightly, while firms continue to diversify the services they offer, the countries in which they work, and project types.
Ideally, all nonresidential buildings would be commissioned, and the team would start at the onset of the project. Because that’s not always the case, commissioning authorities and experts offer advice on building projects in various stages of commissioning, recommissioning, or retro-commissioning.
Fire detection and notification systems are complex for fire protection engineers to design. The presenters from the Aug. 27 webcast offer additional guidance.
The list was developed using CFE Media’s web analytics for stories viewed on csemag.com, August 31 to September 6, for articles published within the last two months.
