Bill Lape & Tony Lundell This item is one of the least understood of the various code requirements. What are the requirements for a Machinery Room? The confusion normally centers around the design and construction of the Machinery room. Many designers do not understand there are multiple codes that apply to a machinery room design. This paper and presentation will focus on current code and standards and good practices for Refrigerant Detection and Ventilation. Focusing just on construction/ detection/Ventilation, it will educate our members on what to be aware of and convey the requirements that will assist our members in auditing their Machinery Room installation.
