In today’s world, so-called “high-performance, sustainable” facilities are a dime a dozen. But many of these buildings rely on overly complex mechanical systems to carry out their mission. While these systems may meet design requirements, they routinely fall short of performance expectations — a direct result of the mismatch between elaborate systems and the often-limited resources of the facilities personnel expected to operate them.
You were just selected to design a critical exhaust system. The critical exhaust system must maintain negative space pressurization without failure for the five-year time period between scheduled maintenance services. The client wants to review the proposed critical exhaust system design reliability calculations.
