1. Commissioning electrical and power systems

Essential/standby power equipment and system components are some of the most critical electrical systems to be commissioned in nonresidential buildings. 

2. How to engineer manufacturing, industrial buildings

Manufacturing and industrial facilities can be particularly complex projects, involving large facilities containing behemoth machinery, hazardous chemicals, and a range of other concerns. 

3. Electrical systems: Designing electrical rooms-your questions answered

In addition to the questions answered in the webcast event, the presenters answered several questions about designing electrical rooms. 

4. Know the intent, changes of NFPA 99-2012

NFPA 99: Health Care Facilities Code was completely overhauled and rewritten from the 2005 edition to the 2012 edition and was changed from a "standard" to a "code." 

5. Power plant reliability

The ASME committee for reliability, availability, and maintainability helps power plant owners and operators achieve their goals. 

The list was developed using CFE Media's web analytics for stories viewed on www.csemag.com, July 7-13, for articles published within the last two months.
