Course Brief

Unit Abstract

Modern high-rise, and multi-zone, buildings have complex requirements for heating and cooling. Their scale, number of occupants, and need for better performance and efficiency, means that the design and installation of systems for heating, cooling and ventilation are critical.

This unit is designed to introduce students to the principles of Advanced Heating,Ventilation and Air-conditioning Design & Installation. Upon completion of this unit, students will be able to understand a broad application of technologies and design techniques used to satisfy the requirements within large commercial or complex/multi-zone buildings.

Topics included in this unit include hydraulic and control strategies for heating, sustainable technologies, ventilation systems for forced air and passive ventilation,complex distribution and plan strategies for air-conditioning, and related design and installation factors.
