Top 5 Consulting-Specifying Engineer Articles, April 23-29

Consulting-Specifying Engineer's top 5 most read articles online for March April 23-29 covered Critical power, designing electrical rooms, NFPA 101 in hospitals, generator specification unanswered questions, and designing timber structures. Link to each article below.

1. Critical power: hospitals and data centers

Electrical engineers must consider many factors when designing backup, standby, and emergency power systems. Specific requirements for emergency power vary based on the mission critical facility, such as a hospital or data center.

2. How to design electrical rooms

Electrical engineers should coordinate with mechanical engineers, architects, structural engineers, and others involved in the design of electrical rooms.

3. Implementing NFPA 101 in hospitals

NFPA 101: Life Safety Code is a reference used for strategies to protect people based on building construction, protection, and occupancy features that minimize the effects of fire and related hazards. It is the only document that covers life safety in both new and existing structures.

4. Your questions answered: Generator Set Sizing and Specification

The April 12, 2018 “Generator Set Sizing and Specification” webcast presenter addressed questions not covered during the live event.

5. The sustainability case for timber structures in building design

Timber is a sustainable, and realistically attainable, material with which to build modern workspaces.
