Do Mixed-Use Buildings pose HVAC Challenges that other Building’s don’t?
Mixed-use buildings present certain challenges that traditional buildings do not due to their complexity at the interface between occupancies. As occupancies change, for example, from a restaurant on the first floor to office space on the second floor, so to do HVAC needs and therefor HVAC systems. This presents a big challenge for building engineers and HVAC contractors who must understand how the requirements for each occupancy will impact both building and HVAC system design. Not only do HVAC systems need to meet the needs of each occupancy, but the system must also meet the demands of the entire building in terms of efficiency.
How have Mixed-Use Buildings changed over the Years?
As energy efficiency and sustainability have become standard practice in building design, HVAC design has followed…and for the better. HVAC systems have improved because of sustainability initiatives, increased energy efficiency, and more strict life safety requirements.
What Factors do you consider when designing an HVAC System for a High-Rise Mixed-Use Building?
High-rise mixed-use buildings require unique HVAC design considerations. System selection, system design, and zoning are all issues that will affect HVAC costs in high-rise buildings. Will the building utilize individual systems, a central system, or a stacked system?
