At some point in time, most pharmaceutical firms are committed to growth and make the business decision to build, renovate, or expand their facility. When ready, a Building Program (BP) will be the cornerstone for investing in an HVAC design and eventual construction of HVAC systems to meet the Building Program requirements.
For the HVAC engineer, she will take the program information and craft a Basis of Design (BofD) using the suggested BofD templateof this B2B here. For this month’s test, we will document the BP for a pharmaceutical building addition to be used for additional warehouse capacity. On the BofD template in this B2B, the reader shall complete the BofD by filling in the pertinent data drawing upon the BP information provided and from pertinent reference documents such as local weather data design criteria. The answers to the BofD can be found here.
