authors walk us through the process - and more importantly, where
the pivotal smoke control design moments should fall within the
larger design/construction process. See who needs to be involved
in smoke control along the way, how to split up the special
inspection, and why going “Hollywood” isn’t the best idea for
the final acceptance test.
Leaning on experience and data from various K-12 cities and projects, the author pursues some less conventional design approaches. They may revolve around radiant heating and/or cooling, but depending on school size and other factors, the smart use of heat recovery, DOAS, and improved central plants could also put a project on the HVAC honor roll.
