Critical facilities have many of the same HVAC demands as other buildings, except the consequences of unexpected problems can be catastrophic and expensive. Using a data center as an example, reliable power sources and optimal system functioning is required at a minimum. In addition, heat-producing systems must be immediately cooled to maintain the temperature in a narrow range, and the unit must be easily accessible for quick maintenance. To further tax the engineer, servers are often squeezed into small spaces, energy use must be minimal, and designs must be able to accommodate unforeseeable changes.
This is a challenging situation, to say the least! Would it not be wonderful to have a wise design mentor to turn to with jobs like this? Even better, a mentor who is available 24/7, works for free, and only recommends the most energy- and material-efficient, time-tested solutions?
