Building technical systems – for which objects?
- Office buildings
- Industrial premises and warehouses
- Shopping centres
- Public buildings (schools and kindergartens, museums, etc.)
- Medical institutions (hospitals, etc.)
Did you know? Many of the buildings listed above are high-risk sites where a fire could threaten human lives and health and cause huge material damage. This means that they are required to install several fire safety systems, such as automatic fire alarm systems and automated fire safety systems, by law.
Design and construction of technical systems – what must be taken into consideration?
The life cycle of a building without renovation is estimated at approximately 50 years. Technical building systems usually age in 20–30 years. You should start thinking about how it would be easier to modernise the systems in the future already in the designing stage.
Care for the environment is increasingly a priority in the installation of technical systems today. For example, ventilation equipment with heat recovery, in which discharged air is used to heat the incoming fresh air, are gaining popularity. Specific fan power is also taken into consideration.
Maintenance plays an important role in ensuring the reliability and sustainability of the systems. Proper maintenance extends the service life of the systems. Yet, you should keep in mind that technology is in constant development, with more and more efficient solutions becoming available.
