Book Description:
The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers, Inc. (ASHRAE), commissioned this design guide in response to the need for a comprehensive reference manual for the planning, layout, and design of laboratories. It is intended that the information in this guide assists engineers, owners, and system operators in determining the needs of their laboratory facility and how to best match these needs to mechanical system options.

The Guide is written in a manner that progresses from general to specific to reach a wide target audience of designers, architects, engineers, owners, operations and maintenance personnel, and others in the heating, ventilating, air-conditioning, and refrigerating (HVAC&R) industry. The beginning chapters of the Guide present general background information and prescribed design frameworks, whereas the later chapters are more specific, providing detailed design and application information.

A primary benefit of this structure is that many types of readers can use the Guide. Whereas an owner may only read the first two chapters, an engineer may focus on the design chapters.
To improve the comprehension of the material for those unfamiliar with laboratory design, the guide is organized around a typical project, progressing through the basic steps of planning, design, construction, and operation and maintenance (O&M). This Guide consists of sixteen chapters.
