ASHRAE STD 62.1
Ventilation for Acceptable Indoor Air Quality
|Publication Date:||26 June 2019|
The 2018 Facility Guidelines Institute (FGI) Guidelines for Design and Construction of Outpatient Facilities require certain outpatient spaces to meet local ventilation codes and not ASHRAE/ASHE Standard 170. Neither of the two mechanical model codes (IMC and UMC) has ventilation rates for these spaces. The IMC and UMC use ASHRAE Standard 62.1 as a basis for their ventilation table.
This addendum adds ventilation rates for those spaces in order to bridge the gap with ASHRAE/ASHE Standard 170. It was developed in consultation with FGI in order to understand the activity in each space.
Note: In this addendum, changes to the current standard are indicated in the text by underlining (for additions) and (for deletions) unless the instructions specifically mention some other means of indicating the changes.
