1. VRF: Overcoming challenges to achieve high efficiency

Variable refrigerant flow systems can result in effective, high-efficiency HVAC designs, but care must be taken to achieve proper ventilation, humidity control, and compliance with ASHRAE Standard 15.

2. Lighting controls: Know the updates, changes

There has been a move away from traditional lighting controls approaches, which have only incrementally improved over decades, and toward an entirely new way of thinking about, designing, and implementing lighting controls—wirelessly, with internet connectivity, and in an individually addressable capacity all at once.

3. Exploring complex hotels, resorts, and casinos

Casinos and resorts are designed for fun and relaxation, but with such projects becoming increasingly complex and high-tech, engineers charged with tackling these structures have challenging work ahead of them. 

4. BIM coordination and integration

When coordinating design, construction, and commissioning services across multiple disciplines, leveraging building information modeling (BIM) and virtual design and construction (VDC) processes can ease a project’s overall development. 

5. 2018 Lighting and Lighting Controls Study: Five lighting industry findings

Respondents to the Consulting-Specifying Engineer 2018 Lighting & Lighting Controls Study identified five high-level findings.
