SynopsisProvides general guidance in the design, construction, installation, testing and commissioning, operation and maintenance of air-conditioning and mechanical ventilation systems in all commercial, office and institutional buildings except health care facilities. Specifies minimum requirements in mechanical ventilation and air-conditioning engineering practice such that an acceptable indoor thermal environment can be attained in an energy efficient manner with general consideration for the indoor air quality (IAQ), and maintainability of the equipment.
