New guidance for commissioning HVAC&R systems and assemblies is now available from ASHRAE.
ASHRAE Guideline 1.1, "HVAC&R Technical Requirements for the Commissioning Process," details specific tasks required to successfully implement the commissioning process for such systems. It also describes the technical requirements for the application of the commissioning process as described in ASHRAE Guideline 0-2005 that is intended to verify that the HVAC&R systems achieve the owner's project requirement.
The Guideline contains more than 100 pages of annexes that provide concrete examples of forms and documents to assist the commissioning team and owners in delivering quality buildings that meet the project requirements. Twenty-five sample checklists cover pre-design, design and construction.
The cost of the Guide is $69 or $55 for ASHRAE members. For more information or to order, visit www.ashrae.org/bookstore.
