Permit flexibility for reconfiguring the floor plan in the administration, food preparation,
and golf shop service areas.
Permit large wall openings for views from the dining room and golf shop.
Can be extended with significant overhangs.
Select the structural system based on achieving an economical system that meets
engineering standards, including consideration of:
Projected load requirements.
Bearing conditions including subsoil and drainage considerations.
Prevailing and available construction practices.
Regulatory constraints including force protection standards, seismic loadings, safety
issues, and climatic conditions.
6-3.2 Mechanical Systems
The Golf Clubhouse is likely to be a single story building with most rooms close to the exterior
walls. Its rooms will have differential loadings and will be operated on different schedules.
Design considerations to achieve an economical system in designing the HVAC systems for
the Golf Clubhouse include the following items:
Load calculations shall be performed in accordance with ASHRAE standards, based
on local weather conditions, and applicable energy code.
Mechanical systems shall be designed according to local code requirements. If local
codes are not in force, the International Mechanical Code (IMC); 2000 shall be used.
Mechanical systems shall be designed according to the International Energy
Conservation Code 2000, ASHRAE 90.1 1999 or other applicable local energy
Ventilation shall be provided in accordance with ASHRAE Standard 62-2001.
A single hot water boiler, sized as defined above, shall provide heating.
Provide direct exterior access to the mechanical room from the outside.
Provide baseboard, fin tube radiation for heating. Elements shall be zoned by space,
controlled by local thermostats. In spaces where radiation cannot be installed,
provide heating coils in overhead ductwork.
Provide air-conditioning for all areas in the building, where authorized, including the
golf shop, offices, dining room, and function spaces.
Humidification is not required unless needed to control problems caused by local
System shall be designed to meet NC-35 acoustic criteria for the occupied space.
Provide a kitchen hood exhaust fan, sized to meet the specified hood performance.
Provide hood exhaust duct as required by NFPA 96. Provide make-up air unit and
heat recovery capability as required by the International Energy Conservation Code
2000 or other applicable local energy code. The kitchen shall not be air-conditioned.
Provide dishwasher exhaust (if dishwashing machine is furnished). Dishwasher
exhaust shall be aluminum or stainless steel, watertight.
