HEATING, VENTILATING, AND AIR CONDITIONING
The reviewer should be aware of following coordination issues that designer is required to meet, and can find detailed information in the applicable HVAC Design Manual, and the A/E Quality Alerts. Coordination within HVAC trade and other disciplines is one of the biggest problems requiring through review.
Check if the equipment schedules, control and flow diagrams, floor plans, and details show consistent information, and the information is coordinated with the contract specifications.*
Check if the mechanical equipment rooms have adequate space for performing maintenance with ease, and adequate number of building cross-sections are shown establishing adequacy of ceiling and shaft spaces to fit work of all trades.
Review if symbols, notes, and abbreviations are consistent throughout the contract drawings.*
Interdiscipline Coordination: HVAC design must be coordinated with all other disciplines such as Architectural, Structural, Electrical, Plumbing, and Site planning
a. Refer to ‘SCOPE OF HVAC DESIGN’ in applicable HVAC Design Manual for interdiscipline items requiring coordination.
b. Refer to A/E Quality Alerts for repeat errors and omissions items those VA experiences and must be avoided.
