Mechanical, plumbing and fire protection engineers need to keep plumbing, piping and pumping systems in mind when designing buildings. Their impact runs deep and serves as the lifeblood for how well a building’s mechanical and fire systems operate. Featured articles in this eBook from Consulting-Specifying Engineer include improving chiller performance, selecting a commercial water heater and understanding fire pumps.
Making buildings smarter is a complex, but worthwhile, endeavor for consulting-specifying engineers and it requires knowledge of many different aspects. Featured articles include selecting a building automation system, integrating building systems through controls and identifying the cost and scope of a BAS.
Data centers are some of the most complex buildings in which engineers must design power, cooling and fire/life safety systems. Featured articles include modular electric rooms, high-tech data centers and knowing when to choose busways.
Fire & Life Safety is a crucial aspect and a constant presence in the consulting-specifying engineer’s day-to-day operations. Learn more in this eBook from Consulting-Specifying Engineer. Featured articles in this eBook include NFPA 13-2019 revision, hybrid design approaches and designing smoke control systems.
HVAC systems touch nearly every aspect of a building and the consulting-specifying engineer. They have a great deal of influence and, thus, require a great deal of time and attention to ensure they run properly. Featured articles include stories about hot water heating boilers, pandemic control in buildings and air- versus water-cooled chilled plants.
Lighting and lighting controls might seem simple, but for the consulting-specifying engineer, there is more to them than meets the eye. Successful implementation requires a great deal of knowledge about their energy properties, but also how they fit with the many codes and standards required from different buildings. Featured articles include vulnerable electrical systems, selecting […]
Electrical and power generation are at the heart of many projects for specifying engineers. Knowing the standards behind them is key to success. This helpful eBook from Consulting-Specifying Engineer will provide information about electrical and power from a variety of viewpoints. Featured articles include integrating building systems, zero energy buildings and why ground fault protection is […]
Data centers, data closets, edge and cloud computing, co-location facilities, and similar topics are among the fastest-changing in the industry. Data centers have high-level power demands, customized climate and cooling needs, unique enclosure systems-and all of this must operate without interruption.
