Plumbing provides all domestic water make-up supply and drain outlets, undergroundoil storage tank(s) and piping for emergency generators.8.
Food service and laboratory equipment, shown on Architectural drawings, include allcontrolled temperature rooms in laboratories and all hoods in dietetic areas,laboratories, and research areas.
Section 23 00 02 Drawings
The following information shall be shown on mechanical HVAC drawings.1.
HVAC system design including indoor steam piping.2.
Seismic design related to the HVAC systems.3.
Walk-in refrigerators and freezers.4.
Outdoor exposed (or, underground) chilled water piping.5.
The HVAC system design documentation shall use EMU standard symbols,abbreviations, standard details, and equipment schedules.6.
In the final design drawings (Construction Documents Phase) all ductwork, regardlessof sizes and/or complexity of layout(s), and piping 6" and above shall be shown indouble line with all fittings and accessories clearly shown and identified.
Section 23 00 03 Climatic Conditions
The outdoor climatic conditions shall be based on local climatic conditions. These conditions arebased on the weather data listed in the latest edition of the ASHRAE Handbook of Fundamentals. The local professional engineers may recommend more severe outdoor climaticconditions, commonly used by them, for review and approval by EMU.
Section 23 00 04 Engineering Economic Analysis
To comply with Public Law 95-619, engineering economic analysis shall be performed, inaccordance with the procedure outlined by the Department of Energy (DOE) in National Instituteof Standards and Technology (NIST) Handbook 135 (Life Cycle Cost Federal EnergyManagement Program), to select the most cost effective HVAC system for the application. Theadditional features of the analysis are:1.
For comparison of systems, a 20 year life cycle shall be assumed.2.
The analysis may be performed by means of available public domain programs, suchas, "TRACE", "E-CUBE", and CARRIER E20-II, etc.3.
No taxes or insurance shall be used in computing annual owning cost.
Section 23 00 05 Basic Design Parameters
The capacity calculations for the HVAC systems shall be based on theoutdoor climatic conditions identified in the latest edition of ASHRAEFundamentals. The designer shall use the following values:i.
Summer: 1 percent design dry bulb and wet bulb temperatures.
