Is TAB Going away? – What do the Industry Experts Say

Brian Venn, TBE, CxA, Mechanical Testing, Inc.

Terry Seery, President, PE, RF Peck
Peter Cailloux, PE, CFR Engineering

Abstract:

Most projects overlook the importance of the testing, adjusting, and balancing process from the start, but ideally, it should be implemented prior to design documents being released for bid. The TAB team may have pre-design recommendations that could save the owner and project team time, frustration, and money. This presentation will cover multiple scenarios in which TAB has been integrated throughout the construction process, emphasizing the importance of a trusted TAB report along the way.

Learning Objectives:

  • Explain necessity for field calibrations
  • Explain baseline building conditions
  • Recognize the importance of baselining equipment to use only a minimum amount of brake horsepower to achieve full volume.
  • Identify how to comply with ASHRAE 90.1 and ASHRAE 60.1 for energy and ventilation yet creating a sustainable building.
