One of Swegon Air Academy favourite lecturer Peter Simmonds has published a very good guidebook about high-rise buildings and their systems. And recetly I got remided how good this book is when I saw an article about this book published at the REHVA Journal 05/2016 (read full article here).
ASHRAE Design Guide for Tall, Supertall and Megatall Building Systems
The ASHRAE Design Guide for Tall, Supertall and Megatall Building Systems was produced in collaboration with the CTBUH. The design guide outlines various tall building mechanical systems that are presently being designed or are planned for the future. Tall commercial buildings in particular present a series of design problems that set them apart from other functions. The Design Guide will be of interest to owners, architects, structural engineers, mechanical engineers, electrical engineers and other specialized engineers and consultants. This design guide addresses design issues for tall commercial buildings, which are very often mixed-use, and commonly consist of low level retail, office floors, residential units, and hotel uses.
