Current poor HVAC design in an operating facility in the North Sea

asked Feb 23, 2015 in Structural-Civil by cuchiang (2,310 points)
There have been a number of examples of poor HVAC design in the North Sea. The most serious was the level of noise which failed to meet Working Environment rules. Modifications after construction are expensive and disruptive. Other problems are balancing difficiculties, lack of external air locks, poor access for maintenance, stuck dampers and excessive dryness in the air.

Is there any recommendations of how to go about resolving this issue?

HVAC design is a key area of design as a safety critical system. The work should be managed by a contractor familiar with North Sea conditions and Norwegian Working Environment legislation
