Essential Guidance on Health Care HVAC Design
Health care HVAC systems serve facilities in which the population is uniquely vulnerable and exposed to an elevated risk of health, fire, and safety hazard. These heavily regulated, high-stakes facilities undergo continuous maintenance, verification, inspection, and recertification, typically operate 24/7, and are owner occupied for long life. The HVAC systems in health care facilities must be carefully designed to be installed, operated and maintained in coordination with specialized buildings services, including emergency and normal power, plumbing and medical gas systems, automatic transport, fire protections and a myriad of IT systems, all within a limited building envelope.
Expert design guidance is essential.
This new edition of HVAC Design Manual for Hospitals and Clinics provides in-depth, up-to-date design recommendations based on best practices from consulting and hospital engineers with decades of experience in the design, construction, and operation of health care facilities. It presents solutions that are proven, cost effective, and reliable–solutions that provide low maintenance cost and high reliability, with a focus on presenting what’s different about health care HVAC.
This detailed reference is useful for consulting engineers, hospital designers, architects, mechanical engineers, facility managers, infection control personnel, maintenance staff, contractors, developers, and code accreditation and licensure officials.
