Air cooled refrigeration equipment requires adequate ventilation of not less than
1,000 cfm per horsepower (250 cfm for watercooled).
Water mist fire extinguishing systems should be specified in sprinklered buildings
unless prohibited by local codes and should be connected to building sprinkler
Wet chemical fire extinguishing systems should be specified in non-sprinklered
buildings or where required by code.
Emergency power is required for exhaust hood control panel, walk-in freezer,
walk-in refrigerators, and other equipment required for emergency service.
Connect walk-ins to a central enunciator panel for temperature monitoring where
Connect exhaust ventilators and/or fire protection systems to central enunciator
All foodservice storage and preparation area floor slabs should be designed for
Expansion joints cannot be located within prefabricated walk-in refrigerators and
freezers, floor depressions or equipment raised bases.
The Golf Clubhouse should be designed to meet prevailing economic and engineering constraints.
The design should meet life cycle cost criteria. Life cycle cost analyses should be equivalent to the
methodologies outlined in the National Bureau of Standards Handbook (NBS 135), Life Cycle Cost
Manual of the Federal Energy Management Program. All building systems specifications must be
verified with the Installation Civil Engineering Office.
Other general design issues include space and siting issues:
Preliminary floor space requirements for MEP/FP equipment (including rooms for electrical
and communications equipment) should range from 5 to 10 percent of the gross building
area. Actual floor space requirements are dependent on geographic location, building size,
architectural design, mechanical design and other factors. Proper ceiling space for ductwork
and equipment must be considered.
Space for outdoor equipment (e.g. condensing units, oil tanks, transformers) must be
accommodated and coordinated with the exterior space use and landscape design. Care
must be taken to locate this and any other exterior building mounted equipment (e.g. roof top
units, etc.) away from the building entrance and to provide visual and acoustical shielding.

Select a structural system that will achieve several architectural design goals:
Allow for high bay spaces for the dining areas and golf shop.
