Rogin Says Milder HVAC/Plumbing Conditions Soften Design Requirements
Industry Expert Marty Rogin, PE, says that the milder fluids and environments of HVAC, Plumbing and Fire Suppression Systems pipe allow for simpler design analysis and installation documentation. The favorable conditions allow building designers to outsource the detailed design of HVAC, Plumbing and FSS pipe as a “Delegated Design” resulting in schedules of guides, supports and expansion joints. “We generally only consider pipe expansion, with seismic loads where required,” said Rogin. SPED Update interviewed Mr. Rogin at his office at Metraflex in Chicago, IL.
