Advanced Energy Design Guide for Medium to Big Box Retail Buildings
The Advanced Energy Design Guide for Medium to Big Box Retail Buildings is designed to provide recommendations to achieve 50% energy savings when compared with the minimum code requirements of ANSI/ASHRAE/IESNA Standard 90.1-2004. Energy costs are typically the second-highest operating expense for a retailer, so use of this Guide can help in creating a cost-effective design for new retail buildings and major renovations that will consume substantially less energy compared to the minimum code-compliant design and that will result in lower operating costs.
ASHRAE, founded in 1894, is an international organization of some 50,000 persons. ASHRAE fulfills its mission of advancing heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and refrigeration to serve humanity and promote a sustainable world through research, standards writing, publishing, and continuing education.
The ASHRAE Handbooks are the design standard for control of built environments with volumes on Systems and Equipment, HVAC Applications, Refrigeration and Fundamentals. Each is updated every four years. In addition to publishing design guidance for engineers, architects, and facility managers, we also publish a series of texts for classroom use.
Some of the areas we publish in include:
-Energy Modeling and Auditing
-High Performance Building Design
-Indoor Air Quality and Environmental Quality
-Data Center Energy Efficiency
-Noise & Vibration Control
-HVAC for Healthcare Facilities
