Design Challenges of Tall Buildings Addressed by ASHRAE · May 20th

Tall commercial office buildings present a series of design problems that differ from those that are found in other projects in the built environment. Only through the combined efforts of owners and design teams can these problems be addressed and resolved in the most effective manner, according to Donald E. Ross. Ross is the author of The HVAC Design Guide for Tall Commercial Buildings, which provides guidance in both understanding the HVAC design problems of tall commercial office buildings and in detailing their alternative solutions. It is published by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE). Ross also addresses life safety systems needed for tall commercial buildings. Ross has been involved with the design of tall commercial buildings throughout the United States and the world. The publication was prepared under ASHRAE Research Project 1261, An HVAC Design Guide for Tall Commercial Buildings. The cost of The HVAC Design Guide for Tall Commercial Buildings is $59 ($49 ASHRAE members) plus shipping and handling. To order visit ASHRAE.org
