    small buildings and large buildings Some might call this set of documents suitable for use in building codes The second set of documents would be designed to give guidance to someone wanting to design and build a good energy efficient building a set of documents that tell what s good practice These could be used if owners specify they are going to occupy the building for many years I see these documents as giving guidance on ways to increase the energy conservation of new buildings so that they use only 70 percent of the energy used by buildings that are built to the 2001 version of Standard 90 1 The third set would be documents that identify excellent practice Documents that would tell me what I should consider using if my design goal is 50 percent of the energy used by buildings built to the 2001 version of Standard 90 Lastly I envision us publishing documents that include futuristic practices for innovators something for designers who want off site energy usage of 25 percent of buildings built 30 years ago These documents would contain the latest research on innovative building practices and renewable energy sources They would be the focal point for advanced practices not only for developed countries but for developing countries as well This brings us to our second cornerstone the environment We have a beautiful world A world that is extremely complex yet very very fragile We must always remember that our resources are not infinite Taking care of this world and protecting the environment is something ASHRAE has focused heavily on in recent years Whether in energy indoor air quality or refrigeration ASHRAE has realized these areas are not separate They are intertwined If we are to protect our resources we no longer can consider just one without considering the others We must look at what s optimal for the entire system rather than each individual part A good example of this is ASHRAE s Technology Awards Since they were created 21 years ago the awards have recognized hundreds of members who have successfully applied innovative building design in the areas of occupant comfort indoor air quality and energy conservation These awards recognize those designers who have cultivated far thinking attitudes of honoring and respecting the world and its inhabitants The protection of the environment is more than an economic issue it is an ethical issue As professionals each of us is called to conform to technical and ethical standards Energy and the environment typically have not been considered any more than a design parameter However energy and the environment must be elevated from design parameters to moral standards The protection of our environment has two prongs We must consider both the outdoor and the indoor environments For the outdoors we need to inspire the imaginative thoughtful engineers and designers to take a long range view of the implications of their actions and designs There s much attention being given to the term green buildings We

    population but much wider seats and bigger spacing were necessary visit www ice co uk to see the report Meanwhile obesity is increasing Close pitch seating makes it impossible to adopt the recommended crash position and can handicap the 90 second emergency escape time It can also discourage passengers from moving and from sleeping properly A recent complaint about seat pitch from a charter passenger was upheld and the the travel company s subsequent appeal turned down The Government has since promised to require a bigger seat pitch Altitude sickness This is a common problem experienced by many visitors to high altitude mountain resorts The incidence is linked to altitude time at that altitude and speed of ascent Susceptibility varies widely betwen individuals Onset usually starts after 8 hours Modern planes gain great economy by flying at ever higher plane altitudes and can reach these heights quickly Unfortunately the cabin pressure has to be lowered to allow for the mechanical stress of these higher altitudes The only public measurements on flights have indicated that within the US a third of the planes flew above the recommended cabin altitude of 8 000 ft Twenty years ago no planes flew at such a high cabin altitude The medical guidance favours 5 000 6 000 ft for the average passenger At high altitudes the partial pressure of oxygen is much lower than at sea level and the oxygen saturation level in the blood falls It falls most particularly in the elderly and those with some respiratory or blood circulation weakness It introduces headaches and nausea which passes after some adaptation time of a few days High altitude workers in some countries and some high altitude hotels are using enriched oxygen to compensate for the oxygen shortage Ventilation rates There has been a steady

    His reply was that there was hardly a pump or a fan in an installation that equipment was robust When he was a junior apprentice learning his trade one of his summer activities was to write to all the contractors customers asking if they should come and do the maintenance now The majority of the customers paid for an annual visit for principally cleaning In the fifth edition the section of maintenance was revised in the mid 1970s and stated that average maintenance of small installations if often covered by a maintenance contract with the installer or fuel supplier involving two or three visits a year and costing a nominal sum per visit Taken by and large the maintenance of heating plant may be expected to be covered by an allowance of the order of 10 of the fuel cost per annum Notwithstanding the appeal by Peter Martin for more training for maintenance engineers this has not occurred Designers however have continued to design with a blind faith that maintenance engineers will be available I used to suggest that this was a thoroughly unprofessional approach to design Whilst still holding that opinion I see the rapid growth in computer power and the powerful position being taken by the large computer companies as being the next step through these middle dark ages between the past and future 15 hour working week It was not only in Britain that we did not use pumps and fans At the ASH VE 2nd annual meeting in 1896 a topical discussion took place on use of ventilation and the way air should be brought in and out of the building Mr Jellet stated that on the end of the main aspirating shaft there should be a fan A fan will give much better service under such conditions than an aspirating coil because there are so many feet of horizontal flues with a great deal of resistance As recently as 100 years ago fans were a new idea However William Phipson in his proposal for heating of St Thomas s Hospital in London dated 20th November 1865 with a compete description and fully priced proposal being set out in 6 pages He did propose in the centre building in basement I propose fixing a small four horse power steam engine working two fans drawing the fresh air from the exterior of the buildings through the air shaft and by means of an underground air channel to convey this cold air forth along by the fans to the different air chambers He then went on to state that there would be a warming apparatus of simple construction in each chamber and to go on there through the building His estimate for the cost of the installation was 1 928 His operating and maintenance costs were fuel for 200 days for the heating apparatus fuel for the steam engine driving the fans for 365 days and two stokers at 30 pence per week The total cost was 439
