If you are reading this section it means that you design building controls solutions or are at least involved in the process and are interested in designing buildings for the future. By now you have probably made your way through quite a few articles on specific 75F applications but looking at them each individually can make it difficult to see the whole picture. Or maybe this is the first page you've landed on. Either way this section, Holistic Design - Building Topology offers examples and thought processing of designing with 75F controls in mind for different topologies.
Topology means different types of buildings and scenarios. Like a restaurant is different than an office building. Or an office building with water source is different than an air source design.
As you read on we want you to be thinking about why you would design with 75F. Not just that you can. I have worked with plenty of designers who seem to get it in their head that this is what they need to do but forget why after they start in on the project.
Designing with 75F controls in mind is designing so that you will have total visibility into your facilities to make decisions today and help be cognizant of decisions in the future. Thinking about moving your engineering team closer to the warehouse? Maybe not when you realize the ambient noise level is higher nearer the warehouse and you know how that affects productivity.
Designing with 75F also means you and your client have a commitment to the long term effectiveness of the original design. You are choosing that when equipment breaks, you understand that you are losing efficiency and comfort and that you want to know about it before if wreaks havoc on your business as a whole when everybody stops working to talk about how uncomfortable the space now is.
Read on and keep learning how you can use 75F as a holistic design for insight into your building and show your customers your commitment to the intended design.
