FOREWORD This second edition of HVAC Design Manual for Hospitals and Clinics adds updated information, provides in-depth design recommendations based on best practices, and presents proven, cost-effective, and reliable solutions that result in low maintenance cost and high reliability. Our intent is that this edition of the manual focuses specifically on heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning (HVAC) system design for health care facilities, omitting general system descriptions that are readily available in other ASHRAE publications. Instead, our focus has been to present “what’s different” about health care HVAC. Although not a consensus document, this manual draws heavily on ANSI/ASHRAE/ASHE Standard 170-2008, Ventilation of Health Care Facilities, which is. Citations of the standard throughout this book should be understood to include its Addenda a to t and v. This edition is the result of a concerted effort by a fine group of volunteers whose job was made immensely easier by having the first edition to build upon. By intent, the authoring committee was composed primarily of consulting engineers with long experience in the design and construction of health care facilities. Jeff Hardin and John Kramer worked hard on both editions. Hospital engineers John Kramer, Heather Platt, and Ron Westbrook also wrote chapters and provided invaluable input to the entire book. Engineering editorial assistance was provided by John Murphy, and Walter Grondzik was technical editor. Kelly Short and Kelsey Grondzik assisted with tables and illustrations. The intended audience for this manual includes • consulting engineers; • experienced hospital designers who will use it as a reference; • mechanical engineers who wish to become familiar with health care design; • young engineers who seek a career specializing in health care HVAC design; • facility managers; • infection control personnel; • managers of planning and design; • maintenance staff; • contractors; • developers; and • code, accreditation, and licensure officials. Finally, I want to thank Layle Thomas for her fantastic organizational and editorial expertise, which was invaluable in coordinating the efforts of over 32 volunteers. It has been my honor to chair this committee. Dan Koenigshofer, PE, M Public Health, HFDP, SASHE Dewberry Engineers January 2013

Preface This document is the second volume of the three-volume SEAOC Seismic Design Manual. The first volume, “Code Application Examples,” was published in April 1999. These documents have been developed by the Structural Engineers Association of California (SEAOC) with funding provided by SEAOC. Their purpose is to provide guidance on the interpretation and use of the seismic requirements in the 1997 Uniform Building Code (UBC), published by the International Conference of Building Officials (ICBO), and SEAOC’s 1999 Recommended Lateral Force Requirements and Commentary (also called the Blue Book). The Seismic Design Manual was developed to fill a void that exists between the Commentary of the Blue Book, which explains the basis for the UBC seismic provisions, and everyday structural engineering design practice. While the Manual illustrates how the provisions of the code are used, the examples shown do not necessarily illustrate the only appropriate methods of seismic design, and the document is not intended to establish a minimum standard of care. Engineering judgment needs to be exercised when applying these examples to real projects. Volume I: Code Application Examples, provides step-by-step examples of how to use individual code provisions, such as how to compute base shear or building period. Volumes II and III: Design Examples, furnish examples of the seismic design of common types of buildings. In Volumes II and III, important aspects of whole buildings are designed to show, calculation-by-calculation, how the various seismic requirements of the code are implemented in a realistic design. Volume II contains six examples. These illustrate the seismic design of the following structures: (1) a two-story wood light frame residence, (2) a three-story wood light frame building, (3) a three-story cold formed light frame building, (4) a one-story masonry building with panelized wood roof, (5) a one-story tilt-up building with panelized wood roof, and (6) the design of a tilt-up wall panel with large openings. Work on the final volume, Building Design Examples, Volume III—Steel, Concrete and Cladding, is nearing completion and is scheduled for release in late Spring 2000. It is SEAOC’s present intention to update the Seismic Design Manual with each edition of the building code used in California. Work is currently underway on a 2000 International Building Code version. Ronald P. Gallagher Project Manager
