    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Describes work involved in design, commissioning, installation, maintenance and operation of air conditioning and mechanical ventilation systems and the need to optimize the use of energy, reduce hazards and minimize effects detrimental to the environment. The increasing involvement of British engineers in projects overseas is noted and some guidance given in that context. In addition, the code is divided into the following seven sections: fundamental requirements, design considerations, types and selection of equipment, installation, inspection, commissioning and testing, operation and maintenance and overseas projects.
